Default DC hoses/fittings...

After struggling for a while trying to get the wire reinforced vinyl hose ends on to ABS fittings and idea was struck...
*
Went and found several metal shoe horns and used them to facilitate getting the hoses on to the fittings along with some dry lube...
No muss no fuss.. The hose fittings slipped together so sweetly, as in right now...
*
Now I have to try and not think about how many times, with sometimes serious difficulty, I've done this chore....
jw2170, JFPNCM, chessnut2 and 4 others like this.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Great idea, Stick. I'll be doing some of that soon, and I'm glad to know this.

It seems I never finish what I

Seems like the real trick is to find metal shoehorns!

I like it. I also use my heat gun to soften the end.

Genius! And the heat gun idea is also good. Why is it that a 4 inch fitting can measure 3.75 to 4.25 and still be called a 4 inch thing a ma jig? And why don't they routinely give ID and OD dimensions? I have a big box of 4 inch fittings that don't fit anything. A Rockler guy came up with a rubber hose with clamps on each end that really works for connecting. I see similar stuff in plumbing supplies, but never thought to try them out in the DC world.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
