Just recently I had moved my c12rsh from its designated spot in the shop, with a home made dust shroud ducted into a 5” main. When I moved it, I lost the dust collection and figured I’d just go without. However, it’s been quite the nuisance as I’m making a big mess that has to be cleaned up more than I want. So I went to the forums to find solutions to attempt to connect my festoon ct26 hose to save on running more 5” main around the shop.
Just by chance I found a great solution with a fitting I’ve had laying around for more years than I can remember. By using the very first reduction sleeve of this universal adapter, everything fit snug! When I sliced off the 2nd reduction sleeve, there was a small inner rib that actually grabs the festool end and causes a friction fit. This is key for that end. The opposite slide slides in perfectly into the c12rsh port.
You can either push the festool end seated all the way down or leave it snapped onto the rib portion on the end to swivel. Perfect fix!
