Kapex and CT Sys
« on: December 21, 2019, 10:37 AM »
Looking for a permanent dust extractor for my miter station.  Will the CT Sys be good for the Kapex?

Any system (even a shop vac) used with a dust deputy AND a 36mm hose (not too long) is good for the Kapex.

Unless you put a small cyclone between the Kapex & CT Sys, the small bag in the CT Sys will fill up very quickly.

I use a dedicated Midi. The CT Sys is way too small.

Not only will it fill quickly it has less suction than the other vacs. CT-Sys 106cfm, Mini/Midi 130cfm, CT26 36 48- 138cfm.

   More is better for the Kapex.

Make sure you use the big hose, that goes on the outside on the mouthpiece on the Kapex. Much more effective than the small 27 mm.
