    Better 4” dust hose

    I am looking for a 4” flexible dust hose that does not shrink up significantly when closed and a vacuum applied. I’ve tried a couple off Amazon that claimed to not do so but they did. Surely someone makes one that keeps its length better when closed. I switch this hose between two machines and when used to pick up loose floor or tool dust the shrinking is annoying and has been damaging .

    The PowerTec hose I get from Amazon pretty much stays "at length" for me and I'm also moving hose around in my temporary shop where I can appreciate your concern.

    Same. The only ones I'm aware of that collapse down like Bernie is suggesting seem to be designed to do so, and usually boast of this feature.
