I got the monthly Rockler sales flyer and noticed that they have their “4 Dust Right Expandable Hose sale. I like the idea of the hose compressing back to 3’ for storage. But, I have read mixed reviews where some said that the hose was too heavy to stay hooked onto the tool and that the hose split.
Currently I have 20 feet of black hose that I drag around the shop to whatever machine I plan on using. The end is terminated with a cone shaped fitting that uses friction to fit onto the dust port of a tool. I find that the hose is not very flexible and is always in the way when not in use or when I don’t need the entire length.
I am planning to switch to the Fazlok.
I have a couple of questions about the Rockler hose:
1. It looks like it comes with end fitting with a handle, can that be removed?
