attaching the Sawstop JS Pro to the CTM 36
« on: February 13, 2022, 11:03 PM »
Hi there, I have just picked up the Festool CTM 36 E FS, but to attach it to the Sawstop, I need an adapter.  The CTM comes with a Antistatic Suction Hose D27/32 x 3.5 m.
Question is, what sort of adapter do I need to attach the suction hose to the Sawstop.
I am very new to the need for a dustless workspace, so I would love someone with experience to weigh in.
I am setting up in a 5m x 3m workspace.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the FOG :) Always good to put country of origin in to offer more direct answers, and links.

For most portable saws you need a 2.5" hose. If in the US you can pick one up for most any "shop vac", and places like Home Depot offer Ridgid versions. Festool makes one it calls a 50mm hose.

Hi there Peter, thanks for the welcome, I am Brisbane, Australia based. 

I was thinking that the 50mm hose would be the option.  Might just have to bit the bullet and grab that.

Cheers
