Domino dust bag option?
« on: January 14, 2022, 03:02 PM »
I sometimes have to take my Domino DF500 on-site, but can't always take my CT26. Is there a collection bag that can be fitted to the DF500, similar to the TS55 (ideally, same bag since I already have that too!). An adapter, perhaps?

The dominos will not function properly with out extraction and you will probably break your cutter as the chips will not be removed as you plunge.

For those times I take my Domino on the road to cut a few mortises I use my cordless Milwaukee vacuum.   Works perfectly !

Second that. There is no natural air and chip flow away from the cutter the way it happens in circular saw. Dust bag won't work and mortice, being enclosed by the tool, might clog.

Dust bag, no way. 

Don't bother trying without extraction/vacuum.  You'll pay more for a single replacement cutter than you will for a Bauer 3 Gallon 'shop vac' from Harbor Freight (SKU 64753) or a similar Ridgid WD from your local HD store, if the CTL-SYS isn't a viable option to supplement your CT26 for those occasions you need a compact/portable unit.

There are probably other good options worth considering, but for <$40-60, that's where I'd start if I only needed it for very infrequent onsite use.  You won't have the convenience of pass-through power/auto-switching and you'll probably have to check the hose connector suitability and bodge something to get it working, but that shouldn't be a huge problem all told.

Hope this helps.

Looks like you'll need the new CTLC SYS when it comes out.  [smile]
