Peachtree #369 50' 2.5" Heavy Duty Clear PVC Dust Collection Hose.


  • Peachtree #369 50' 2.5" Heavy Duty Clear PVC Dust Collection Hose.

    Quick review of the hose.

    Good and flexible PVC material follows handheld tools like sanders super easy. Wire wrapped soft PVC is entirely too crushable. Be careful not to step on, or drop anything onto the hose!
    50 foot bulk box of hose is a lifesaver for those of us wanting to make custom length hoses. I made 1 @ 20 feet, and 3 @ 10 feet out of mine.
    This was the least expensive hose I could find, which is NOT why I bought it. I wanted hose that I could make a 20 footer out of without splicing.
    I am a little concerned about the durability of the material it is made from though. I was able to cut through it with a utility knife, but it took way more effort to poke through than I expected (and I jabbed my finger in the process, OUCH!). The wire wrapping should make grounding the system easier as well.

    Summary, so far so good. Relatively easy to work with, low cost, desirable lengths, good visibility through it to find and work out obstructions. Concerns with crushing and durability. Perhaps unfounded, but still there. Overall, I think for the cost, if these hoses last me 5 years, I will be happy with them.

    RELATED REVIEW: See my review on the Peachtree #447 Screw End 2.5" Dust Collection Hose Adapters. When combined, they make a good hose assembly.

      After several months of ownership, I am finding that when left plugged into the blast gates, the hose tends to pull itself out of round, and slips off the coupler. This may end up requiring a hose clamp to get it to stay. A bit annoying, but so far, still pleased. I have stepped on the hoses, and dropped sheet goods on it, and it always bounces right back.

  • A review of the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop Kit
    by twistsol

    I built my miter station last summer and used the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop Kit. The kit was just the starting point. 8 feet of track and a single flip stop didn’t meet my needs since I was building a miter station the width of my shop, nearly 24 feet. I added four 48” pieces of top track and three additional swing stops so I could have two left and two right. Finally, I added metric rules to the top. Total cost breakdown is as follows

  • Review of VIX-type Self Centering drill bits
    by LCHIEN
    I have always had trouble mounting small hardware on small wood boxes, with the hasps and hinges always looking slightly off perfectly square - particularly a problem with flat head screws and countersunk hardware which aligns the hardware to the hole location and centers on the hole.

    I'm talking small wood screws. I place and mark the hardware carefully and mark the center of the hole with a sharp awl.
    The problem comes about with small bits like 1/16 and 5/64 and 3/32"...

  • Grizzly Overarm Blade Guard review.
    by twistsol
    Since my new shop is in the basement, dust collection is a bit more important than when I had my own building and could do as I pleased in the shop. With that in mind, I upgraded the dust collection on my table saw. I purchased the Grizzly Overarm Blade Guard to use with the saw.

    First impressions were that this is an extremely solid and well built unit. It's made mostly of steel and connects to a 4" DC hose. There were a number of issues getting it set up and installed, and a...

  • Kreg KMA 3220 5mm Shelf Pin Jig
    by twistsol

    I decided to look for the rock bottom cheapest 32mm drilling system available that would let let me create real 5mm holes spaced 32mm apart, that was easy to use, and didn’t require a bunch of setup time. I’m really surprised at how much I like this little Keg jig especially when you consider the price of $34.99, and it has everything included. There were a couple of jigs cheaper but you needed to buy a self-centering 5mm bit to go along with them so they would...

  • Knife marking pencil Accutrax
    by LCHIEN
    Here's a tool I found useful for marking. Accutrax pencil blade marking knife.

    I have one I've been using on and off for a while. Its a fine pencil lead in the shape of a utility blade that can be installed in any utility knife handle and used with a straight edge, combination square, saddle square etc. to mark easily seen, fine lines on wood..

    Here's mine. I have not broken it, it seems to be quite sturdy. The sharp edge lasts a long time. I'm still on the...

  • Saddle squares
    by LCHIEN
    Hey, I'm sharing one of my favorite tools. A Veritas Saddle Square. Actually I have two in different sizes. This is the large size for marking 2x4 and 4x4 (shown on 4x4 here). One of those tools that makes woodworking a pleasure.

    They're great for continuing lines from side to side. And even side to opposite side.
    Works really well when the board has a rounded edge or some wane where the edge is not really sharp and square but the two adjacent faces are square to...
