Default Festool OF 1010 under base dust swiveling shroud

May I ask if anyone has used the above router with the under base rotating dust shroud please? How much dust does it collect when edge routing ?

I was really impressed as it was pretty much the majority of it when I tried . I wear a mask regardless but I couldn't see any dust on the floor . My only negative was when I tried to go around a corner and it got hooked on the edge . No biggy really .

I use a general international dust extraction unit connected to Festools overpriced pipe , but TimberTaylor found a great alternative from Bosch I believe for the pipe .

Btw mine is the Festool 1400 but I think there quite simular
timbertailor and Cochese like this.

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Like RainMan I have the OF1400 and it does an excellent job of collecting the dust. It is harder to see with the dust extraction on tho.

It does slow you down a little around the corners but its ability to capture sawdust is well worth the extra effort. I too own the bigger brother but they operate the same way.

You can get a cheaper hose from Home Depot. Part number# VAC0005, as Rick alluded to. This allows you to hook it up to your shop vac or DC system.

Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.

I've had the of1010 a few years now and used with my midi vac it gets pretty much 99 to 100% of the dust when using the swiveling chip catcher. I'll be getting the of1400 this week hopefully the dust catcher on that will be just as good.
