I was looking for some flexible hose to hook up the dust port on my Delta chop saw and had hit all the local home improvement and hardware stores without luck. Starting to wonder if I’ll ever find some I think of Google so I start looking. Even there it wasn’t easy but I finally start to find some and Grainger is one place. You need an account there which I don’t have but can use a friends but I decide to keep looking.
So I come across this place called DrillSpot.com, I think I’ve heard of it or come across it before but never ordered from them. I’m a little bit leery but on Monday I place the order, pick 3 day shipping, says it will arrive Thursday so all is good.
So it’s Tuesday and I happen to be home and the UPS truck drives up. I already received the two packages I was expecting today, so I think, could that be the hose? So I look at the box and it shipped from Grainger. I get it in the house, open it, sure enough the hose, from DrillSpot.com via Grainger.
So, knowing this now, not only will I not be leery of ordering from DrillSpot.com, if there’s something I want at Grainger I’ll see if DrillSpot.com has it because it’s a whole lot easier this way.
Oh and what made this hose hard to find is it’s 1-3/4” ID, not a very common size I found out, and very flexible.
