My shopvac hose finally collapsed on me after years of faithful service,so I headed on down to the local store for a replacement and found that a new one now costs 20.00 and tax. after calming my defibrelater down I went back home and tried to figure out a way to fix the old one. I thought about amputating the collapsed part but couldn’t stand the thoughts of ANOTHER short hose in the woodshop so, I decided to do what the doctor did for me and give it a stint. The duct tape and a soup can later and I am back in business. P.S. You don’t have to use name brand soup but chicken noodle really does work best.Try to avoid tomato at all costs YEECH!!!

looks good

so long as you don’t have to
put a drip bag on it
to get the sawdust in it

it should work fine

They just don’t make hoses like they used to.

I’d complane to the MFG and tell them that you think that it was a MFG defect and should be repllaced.

This is an interesting solution to the problem. Like you I had my hose do the same thing but just shortened it. I am sure it is headed toward another collapse and, when it does, you can be sure I will remember this.
