Topic tags/keywords: dust extractor festool miter saw

Looking for a source to purchase a vacuum cleaner hose that will fit the 26/27 mm exhaust port on a Festool miter saw. I made the mistake of purchasing a Festool miter saw without realizing I need a $640 Festool dust extractor to fit what seems like a proprietary fitting on the exhaust.. I am thinking if I could purchase a vacuum cleaner hose with an inside diameter of 1-1/4 inches, I could make it work and save $500 or more.

Thanks.

THere are some generic stepped hose ends. I use some aluminum and foil tape for a while on my chop saw
Welcome to Festool.

I use a generic hose kit on my Fein vac.

Also look at everything in the way of plumbing fittings, or look at various tubes from McMaster Carr you could glue together.

I bought this hose on Amazon. The fittings that come with it works with Festool.

I used a sump pump hose on the two at work. 50’ run and worked fine. The shop vac was far away…

Sump pump hose can be stiffer, but lots cheaper….
