RIDGID/FESTOOL Dust Collection Mod

After you save up all of your pennies and finally buy a Festool tool like a Domino or the Rotex Sander, you then need to save up MORE┬ápennies for the designated Dust Collection System that costs as much as the tool itself, or else it wont work properly. Here’s a cheaper alternative.

The bag is super important for this dust collection method. If you don’t install the bag, you will have to dump the dust after each use as well as bang out the filter, and I hate doing that. The bag lasts me about a month of moderate use.
