  1. Your best option is either getting a new hose with swivel end or finding an adapter from someplace like Rockler.
  2. The ETSC 125 is my favorite 5 in random orbital sander. I would like to try the RTSC 400 and DTSC 400 orbital sanders but I haven't yet.

    @346 Makita offers a regular circular 6-1/2 inch blade size in both blade right and left. They also offer an x2 track saw which is also 6-1/2 inches but also more expensive. Like @aessu mentioned I would only get a kit with 10 cell batteries preferably 5 ah batteries.
  4. I heard drain at least once a month. Unless parts are loose or something is majorly wrong, you shouldn't have to worry about explosion.
  5. @dustman DeWALT didn't seem to offer what you were looking for in 1-7/8. there was an 1-1/4 one but it wouldn't work. If you don't find something at Rockler you could try a different hose. The vac likely has a different size at the intake that might not be 1-7/8. You would want to make sure the new hose will fit.
  6. Check Rockler. I don't know if they have specifically what your looking for but they have such a large vac accessory offering that they are probably your best option. If DeWALT sells what your looking for then there is no need to search Rockler.
  7. Festool Recon is seemingly back. I haven't bought anything from it personally (yet), but I know some here have scored some pretty good deals on some normally expensive tools that are in excellent condition for being used. Apparently the site wasn't actually inactive, but every time I would check since maybe summer-fall of 2019 it would show the screen indicating the previous item sold out quickly. It is basically a placeholder screen for when nothing is being sold. I always thought they just hadn't been adding any items to the site and I didn't think much about it. Normally I should be gettin
  8. I ordered a second DeWALT dxst10000 shelving unit for my storage unit from Home Depot. I chose ship to store. It was much cheaper than ship to home. I also got a polishing pad for my Rotex 150 and a Surfix finish applicators set from Festoolproducts.com. I heard The Surfix system was being discontinued and wanted to give it a try before it was too late. I wanted to try to buff out finishes with my rotex and I think this kit will be a good start. I will more than likely fill the dispenser cartridges with my own finish once I use up the included Festool finish in them.
  9. I preordered one of Woodpeckers new combo/double squares. I went with the 12in double square option. I also got a belt for my ego snowblower.
  10. Sounds like it might be a corded hedge trimmer but I could be wrong. The ego hedge trimmer goes and keeps on going. A 5.0 battery on it should last most of a working day easy. I'm sure other ope brands would have similar runtimes.

    Are you using DeWALT branded nails?
  12. That may be true but doesn't mean the place that sells Bosch blades will sell Diablo.
  13. depends what you do. You have the basics already. Next up would be more specific tools.
  14. Will be interesting to see how the new carbide recip blades compare to Milwaukee and Diablo. Doesn't look like the US will be getting the new blades.
  15. The most powerful battery powered vac that I know of is the DeWALT Flexvolt and Metabo HPT at 124-125 cfm if I remember right. Most vacs that meet osha silica requirements are around 150 cfm. Bosch makes a corded vac with 300 cfm which would exceed your power needs but it is probably going to be about as portable as your 10 gallon Ridgid. Another option for you is a cordless power supply. This would allow you to power most 120v corded vacs. These power supplies aren't cheap. Ego and Milwaukees offerings are over $1000. In the battery platforms you own, Makita makes the most powerful cordless a
