I purchased a Mirka Ceros ROS and have been using it with my regular old shop vac. This is pretty awkward because the Mirka has a threaded 1-1/4” female connector, and all I have on my shop vac is a 1” slip on connector. I can get it in there, but it doesn’t hold very well, and I’m afraid to force it, lest I mess up the threads on the Mirka.
I am also contemplating purchasing a Festool CT 26 or 36 in the next few weeks. As far as I can tell, the Festool comes with a 1-1/16” hose.
So, how are those of you with the Ceros adapting the port to your dust extractors or shop vacs? Surely there is a simple and cheap adapter out there. I have looked at the Mirka DE and don’t like it as much as the Festool.
Thanks for any input.
