CT separator - improving flow by hose upgrade?
« on: January 17, 2021, 05:42 AM »
Recently bought a Ct26 and pre-separator as an upgrade from my old nilfisk vacuum. Haven't fully tested it out yet in my home workshop as I'm using it on a renovation project down the road. It's biggest job when it is installed at 'home' will be clearing up shavings after hand planing and turning. The plane shavings I normally scoop up by hand  and just use the vac for the dust and smaller bits that are too messy to use in our woodburner. However, I'm wondering if I can improve the flow through the separator by upgrading the hoses. I'm sure I've seen mention somewhere on YouTube of replacing the stock connecting hose with a 50mm version. I assume that I would also need to swap the collecting hose for a larger bore as well to allow the system to 'breath' better. Is the larger connecting hose available as a spare part, or is it a matter of buying a length of 50mm hose and the appropriate end fittings?
