Is it a CT26 with the horrible Festool bayonet fitting?.. that'll be the culprit. Festool changed their excellent 27mm hose nozzle that fitted everything without falling off to the 'twist and lock' fitting that is difficult to get onto compatible tools, is difficult to get on to non-compatible tools, that falls off of non-compatible tools if you managed to get it to fit in the first place - and of course it's best 'feature' is that without fail, everytime it is disconnected, it will deposit some dust on the floor!
Try finding a different nozzle for the Festool hose - there is a Starmix one that'll fit.
Festool is becoming (always has been??) a bitchy, jealous tart of a company that really doesn't like playing well with others. You could try a Mafell hose which will fit the CT vac end & the tool (obviously).
Everybody I know hates those new bayonet connectors. It's simply another form of vendor lock-in by Festool.
+1 from me... I wouldn't mind as much if the original version was still available. Their vendor lock-in is having the opposite effect, I look elsewhere for my tools as much as possible.
^this^ and the sheep that rave about how good it is are bleating it death.
i probably would not have gone with the Nuetrik if I did not Ned to do something to get Euro (schimko) into an Au plug. why then needed to do a connector that costs 3x more than the TrueOne powerCon and is 1/3rd the quality is frustrating.
Yesterday (43C) a friend said what is that (pointing to Nuetrik that plunged into the cement). i had run a conduit and waxed up risers and a square block the size of the chassis mounts. then when the concrete cure I drilled a hole in the conduit upright and used a screw driver to pull it up and out. anyhow sucked a string with cloth the 20M and pulled power line through, so that the fairy lights can go on the pool fence. of course I could not find the right transformer, so I used the led camping lights and a big USB battery.
Shame the powercons aren't standard (or even an option) on tools from all makers. The plug it idea is good - I remember asking my dad when I was about 8 or 9 years old - 'why don't the extensions leads just plug straight into the tool?' - for me as a kid it was crazy all these wasted power leads coiled up around orange black and deckers - not too mention the big block of extensions lead plug and socket on the floor - but only Festool has marketed the integrated version - which I must say was one of the main reasons I first got into Festool!

Kress does it as well. Or did, they're not around anymore. One Mafell Drill was a Kress and also had this removable cord. It was done so that it integrated in the handle like a regular cord. The Festool solution is a little bulky.
I also do not like this new hose nozzle from Festool. The original Mafell is a little bigger in diameter and has a very loose fit on Festool.
Guest: Can anyone mill a corian piece that will fit into the mafell rail for use with the mft3?

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
