    John. Thanks you for your reply. Which one is tighter fit ? Is it Bosch ?

    Hong – I do not own either, I am simply talking from experience demo-ing the Festool and assuming the Bosch is functionally the same. See Cali Decks response:

    The bosch hose fits perfect on my Midi

    We have talked around this site on higher-end vacs quite a bit and the CFM question is often hard to pin down. Not sure this is decisive on a festool vac + dust deputy, but the numbers are at least interesting to look at:

    In reviving this thread on the upper end square shop vacs, I ran across this recent review of the latest fein vac – looks pretty decent.

    Along the same lines is a preview from ProTool Reviews, which contains pretty much similar information but in a very clear and concise format on the 2 different sizes of the new fein vacs

    Hmm, I’m surprised there is no variable speed / suction adjustment on these, unless I am missing it. The older model did have that feature so maybe I am missing it. I wonder if there will be some deals on the old ones….

    Hmmm… maybe I am missing it too, but that is a strange sort of thing for it to lack – especially since the older model had that feature. Fein makes a great vac but I doubt that clearance prices of the older model will be a steal anywhere… nevertheless, one can always hope (though a big negative with fein is that their filters are proprietary and expensive best I recall)

    Could the suction adjustment be on the attachments? I have seen that.

    I thought this thread was worth a revival with the new dewalt vac coming out. http://toolguyd.com/dewalt-dwv010-hepa-dust-extractor-vacuum/

    Do you guys find the square shop vacs on the market are essential for your work? Do you prefer HEPA or not?

    I’m using a large Ridgid vac at the moment. It resembles R2D2 in shape and stature.

    I will say that a squared off vac would be easier to pack in the back of my Subaru.

    Nothing better than a Shop-Vac for me on site. The things are great when needed in a pinch for wet or dry cleanup. I generally don’t use dust extraction with my tools since I am outside and normally 10+ floors above the ground.

    For a shop vac you can’t beat the Hoover GUV. I have one and really like it.

    But that’s round. I also think that John is talking about portable vacs. But the Hoover looks like a nice one.

    It is really nice with a ton of vacuum. Nice deal is with the long hose you mount it one location and use it far away so you don’t have to hear the whine.

    My FestoolCT will not turn on any more. It will not work with the manual or auto setting. It does however power a tool when it is plugged in to the outlet to allow the tool to triggger the vac. That tells me it is probably the switch, but looking at parts for ot the switch is about 125 bucks. Any other ideas before I order the switch?

    I assume it is out of warranty? I had no idea that part was so expensive, yikes.

    It is about 5 years old. I was shocked at the parts cost.

    I use a 600 cfm dust collector in my workshop. I’m not doming production work anymore so this is big enough to handle it I have all my machines hooked to the same systems so I merely have to open the port to the machine I’m using and turn it on. A remote collector helps keep the noise down. Static is handled by running a ground wire through the collection hoses.

    There’s a company gouging its users for parts. They want you to buy new rather then fix.

    I stopped over at my neighbor’s cabinet shop this morning to bs with him for a bit and he was online ordering a Ridgid SmartCart vac. I have never seen these before, pretty sweet setup.
