    Fire! Festool CT22 vac

    Thread Starter: John Piwaron

    I just had a most unpleasant thing happen. I was routing a mortise with my Festool OF2200 router connected to my Festool CT22 vac and during the process of making the mortise, the bag in the vac started on fire. Billowing smoke coming from it. Well, quick, out the door with that! The wood is new...
