Last week I purchased a 10 Feet Long 4” clear hose from Rockwell, ( the one on the left) I spent the better part of the afternoon stretching it to fit the standard connections on my jointer, planer, TS and vacuum. Not a big deal. But since it wasn’t long enough to reach across the shop and I needed to order few things online from good ol Harbor Freight as in (Dust Collector Separator Lid) I decided to add one of their 10 feet hoses to the order.
Let me tell ya, this thing fits perfect the first time and much better quality than more popular and expensive hoses.
Now I wish I had bought at least two more. Unfortunately They don’t sell these at the stores and it’s online only item.
There u go

Good info as I have wondered if their hose was worth purchasing. Thanks.

It is thick walled enough to last awhile?
I need some hose & I don’t have a ton of dough to spend.

Not only it has same thickness as other hose, (0.022 ~ 0.027, center~edges) it is better construction because the wire has white plastic shielding. And it’s also more accurate than my other hose. As I said I wish I had ordered few more.
Unless you plan to shoot it with nail gun or stab it with some sharp object, it should last a long long long time.
You’re not going to find a much better product even at much higher price range. Unless you want to pay for a name and see Jet or some other useless name pasted on the shipping box.

I purchased 2 of these , they are great. Very flexible, fits perfect. they are 10’...
Just what I was looking for and at close to 1/2 the price of others.

But like the original reviewer said, they are only ONLINE... not in stores.
