Hi,

Working on ladders and drilling/cutting/sawing sometimes inside house, i made some modifications for using the GAS 10.8v instead of a big standard vacuum cleaner.

First i find a 3d printed adapter, i ask a friend to create the piece for me: the files you can find on the web isn't enough accurate to be usefull (when using it, it go away evrytime, the tube isn't long enough and the lips too, file made a too thin parts, need modifications....)

So, i just bough another part of the GAS, a 19mm hose, and the 25/35mm adapter from my GAS 20L
More usefull for me, (working on ladder!).

I can adapt now the GAS10.8v on the all the needed tools i use for working when i can't use the GAS20L

The power of Gaffa. Well done guys. I'm glad to see that just because we haven't done it (yet) it doesn't stop you guys.

How does the Drill dust extraction work?

I already used it 2 times for my job.
I used it on concrete/cinderblock and plasterboard (BA13) for drilling and screwing panels or plexiglas letters. The vacuuming/aspiration is good for about 10-30 holes 5-6cm depth. After that, i don't know: i cleaned up the filter after each use because i think it will lost too much vacuum strength.
But i'm happy to not cleaning up the white interior wall when i use it! Dust on BA13 is very hard to clean well

Hi tiksam
guess the gas 18vli (if available in uk) could be modified in the same way
ordered one from korea good piece of kit exept the filter dosent like brick dust at all need to clear it with compressed air every time you use it for 10 mins or more
if it comes to uk bosch need to sort the filters or sell a pre filter

Doesn't know the GAS exist in 18v. I'm interested now!
And yes, the filter don't like the brick dust on the GAS 10.8v too. But for my work, it's always plaster or brick dust when drilling. So i need to accomodate myself with that.
