Boys and Girls,

If you don’t suck in your workshop then you need not read any further, however, if you occasionally get that sucker snagged on a sharp corner, this little snippet may be of use.

Unless you own a fancy Fe$tool vac with the expensive anti-static non-ribbed hose (top hose)

or duct your hose overhead, you may find you often

snag the ribbing of the hose on sharp edges.

I feed the hoses I use on the end of dust generating tools through a 40mm flexible sleeve


to create a smooth surface that will glide smoothly over sharp edges.

I have both 25mm and 40mm sleeves.

Unfortunately I bought my supply over 5 years ago and the WEB site no longer puts its hand up during a roll call, so I cannot recommend any honest/reliable suppliers.

Nevertheless you may find a supplier if you Google, ”40mm pet expandable sleeving” (you can leave the pet at home).

Just watch what is on offer as some only sell in 1 or 2 meter lengths… having said that, you may choose to only cover the working end of the hose in which case shorter lengths may suffice.

As all 2 ½” hoses are never the same diameter, here is a to a chart

(left click on the picture if you can’t read it, right click if you can, but that’ll do nothing other than bring up a useless drop-down) that you can use to determine what you may need for your workshop… take note of the ”Expandable Range” column.

I chucked together a video that’s more like a dogs breakfast and should be hosed down.

Keep safe, jocks... and your jocks, safe!

That nylon braid is good stuff. The stainless steel braid also works well but a little more $$. That is a great idea, no need for 200MPH “DUCK” tape when the hose splits and cracks going around corners now.

Great idea, LBD! I have the Festool ribbed hose, and it does catch the edges of my workpieces frequently.

An appropriate idea for expensive vacuum hose Alex, but a bit of an over kill for those of us with cheaper aftermarket hose.

I don’t sheath all my hoses… only the ones that attach to hand manipulated tools like sanders, circular saws, Domino etc…
I have a central shop-vac colector with ducting to each corner of the workshop with a dedicated cheap hose on the end of each…

As I don’t drag these over sharp corners they are not covered.

However, the right sized sleeve fits any hose, even the cheapest Ozito vac’s hose you can buy

a tad more upmarket Ryobi hose….

the original Hitachi hose (vac has just died and replaced by Fe$tool)

but I still use the old Hitachi hose on the new vac… the new Fe$tool hose has been re-purposed, even though it doesn’t need the “protection”.
All the above were fitted with the 25mm (grey) and 40mm (red) sleeves.

Even an on sale discontinued pool hose (in another corner) will accept the 40mm sleeve,


video dont work :<((((((((((((

Anyone else have trouble accessing the video… or were you smart enough to avoid the link?

Thanks pottzy, maybe you should always wait till tomorrow… tomorrow, wait till tomorrow, etc…

Actually it was a deliberate mistake… any excuse to punish myself,

Should be fixed, unless my welts heal quickly.

Hmmmm. not a bad idea there Duck! Best thing IMO is the light weight.

Usually when my vac/collector hose snags, I just yank hard until something gives. Eventually evolution will win and survival of the fittest and all that.

I have no idea what you guys are on about… maybe you should pay your ISP bill. I get the link and it is published as ”public” so even the police should not prevent your access.
