Ok I need some input again. I own an older model of the Fein 9-5-13 vacuum. I have trouble locating attachments for it because of its strange size. I currently have it hooked up to a bucket with a cyclone lid. I have the original cloth filter bag that came with it but not the HEPA filter.
My questions are: Where can I get attachments? I located one a long time ago that will fit in my Rigid sander and my Bosch miter saw but I can’t locate where to purchase it again. Should I get the HEPA filter or is it worth it? If I use the HEPA filter then I need the vac bags, right? Has anyone set their Fein up with a cyclone bucket? What method did you use to attach everything? Photos would greatly help. I have trouble hooking my Bosch palm sander to the shop vac. The connecting attachment is so large its difficult to sand. How do you connect the Fein to your sander?
I attached the photos to help explain my current set up. The first one shows how I attach the Fein vac to the bucket lid. In the next one you can see the problem I have with the vac attachment to the sander. The last one is the one attachment that works with the various tools but I can’t find it anywhere. It’s taped because it cracked awhile back.
I would really appreciate any comments other Fein vac users might have in regards to their set up and/or recommendations.
