Ask FastCap / Re: Vacuum option with ChopShop Saw Hood?
« Last post by FastCap on April 11, 2017, 06:53:01 AM »
Hopefully I understand you correctly...the Saw Hood is designed with the Velcro on the bottom, so you can easily make a loop at the bottom and put a vacuum hose in the bottom of it. We have found though that it tends to work better if you run the hose all the way up to the vacuum attachment on the saw itself, inside the saw hood.

Ask FastCap / Vacuum option with ChopShop Saw Hood?
« Last post by EMH on April 08, 2017, 02:32:41 PM »
I recently purchased one of your hoods to use with my Bosch glide saw. The table onto which my saw is attached is deeper than a standard stand and is essentially a cabinet with a recessed (4") back (small shop so am using the space below the saw for storage). I mounted the hood to the table. The bottom of the extended hood rests in close proximity to the back of the table and there is not sufficient room for a collection bucket (the hood material is just a couple of inches from the table/cabinet back). I suppose there are a number of options available to me, but before I try to get to (unnecessarily) creative, was wondering if there was a dust collector I could attach to the hood using the velcro at the bottom and attach a vacuum to the collector?  (Thought that might be why the velcro is there, but there were no instructions in the box, so I apologize if this is covered in them.) If that won't work, I can build a dust collection box onto the back of the table and place a vacuum attachment on it...

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Is there instructions?

It should not be doing that and we will replace them at no charge.  Contact Sandi (sandi@fastcap.com). You don't have to send the old ones back. There are a few things you can do though before we replace them.  Watch this video https://youtu.be/KpwFAs0g_1k

Tried Microsoft Edge and was able to display pdf's.  No idea why Firefox would not.

Thanks

FastCap Product Problems / 3rd hand sticking issue
« Last post by Hojji1 on March 16, 2017, 05:19:44 PM »
I purchased the 3rd hand contractor 4pk on Amazon in May 2016. I've only used them twice, but the second time the spring mechanism in the squeeze handle started to stick. When I squeeze the handle to extend the upper pad, the mechanism won't release and any subsequent compression of the handle does nothing until I lightly tap on the spring components and then it will release until I squeeze it again and it sticks again. Should this part be lubricated? Is there something else I could try that might free this up a bit. It's really frustrating when I've got a sheet of 5/8" drywall above my head waiting for my wife to get the poles extended and the 3rd hand sticks and won't extend.

I just tested all of them and they work for me.  Can you try in another browser?

On the FastPipe eStore under Tech Specs none of the PDF files work for me.  Is it me or are the links broke? 
Thanks
George
