Topic tags/keywords: tip question

The hose keeps sliding off the DD. I ‘ve tried a hose clamp but the plastic on the DD is real slick and won’t hold. I don’t want to put small screws in it. Any suggestions?

Thanks! I got an old innertube from a friend who owns a tire store. Use it for padding in the vise. I’ll cut a strip and put it on the DD. Maybe that will work. If too thick, I have a bike innertuve somewhere in the mess.

I used a single sheet metal screw.

Believe it or not, I found the solution to mine by using a dryer sheet. Put must of the sheet into the DD opening and slip the hose over it to hold it there. Not only does the hose stay put but I have no static electricity to keep chips and dust sticking to the sides of the DD. Rand

Have your say...
