will OSC18 attachments fit Vecturo?
« on: January 14, 2022, 06:10 PM »
Hello all

Can anyone tell me if attachments listed for the OSC18 (cordless) will fit the Vecturo (corded)

I am specifically interested in knowing if the following will fit the Vecturo

 - OSC-AH  Plunge Base for Festool Vecturo OSC 18 Oscillating Tool (has dust collection whereas Vecturo orig does not)

 - OSC-AV Dust Extraction Device

Thanks much

I believe the answer is no to all of those items. Search this forum because there was a very long thread detailing all of the ins & outs of the new OSC 18. Jiggy Joiner was one of the respondents that put in a detailed review.

@WestMan_Canada , I believe this is the thread that @Cheese was referring to:

Here's a link to a specific post in that thread about incompatibility:

This is the main reason that I don't have a Vecturo. The only Festool battery I have is the CXS.
I just don't see getting into the 18v platform for a single tool? My TS55 and PS420 are both corded, my drills/drivers are Makita.

Thanks folks - I found the threads about blades but missed the one about attachements.
For posterity here is a summary of the findings extracted from that thread:
(I presume that the term "new Vecturo" used below ultimately means what became the OSC18)

1) You CAN fit the New Starlock Vecturo accessory mount to the Starlock Supercut.

2) You CANNOT fit the NEW Vecturo accessories to the OLD Vecturo mount.

3) You CAN actually fit the NEW Vecturo Mount to the OLD vecturo BUT it does not allow correct operation, so do NOT do this, we only performed a test. We presume the same goes for the old supercut but we do not have a machine to test.


4) You CAN fit the NEW Vecturo mount to the Starlock Multimaster BUT the Multimaster is only rated to Starlock plus so not recommended.

The only lingering question here the meaning of   "BUT it does not allow correct operation"  vis-a-vis New (OSC18) mount on Old (Vecturo OS400) tool....
