Introducing a brand new approach to dust collection! A unique segmented design allows FlexForm Hose to twist, bend, expand and/or collapse to a desired shape and length, then firmly hold that position - resulting in virtually unlimited versatility. This ability to bend around obstacles, expand or contract to perfectly fit a given space, and maintain its shape makes FlexForm Hose ideal for tight spots and tricky dust collection applications where conventional hose just won't work. You'll find countless ways to use this clever product. In addition, this hose expands to three times its collapsed length, from approximately 12" to 36"

Rockler FlexForm Dust Collector hose
I connected this hose between Fein Shop Vac and the Oneida Dust Deputy cyclone pre filter. The Feinfilter stays clean. I also connected a 3-way 110VAC outlet to the Fein auto-start connector and now 3 tools will start the vac automatically when turned on. Currently a palm sander, a miter saw, and a biscuit joiner.start the vac when the tool is turned on. It's awesome, built into a miter saw bench still under construction. Rockler makes some outstanding tools.

Perfect for the Drill Press
This is perfect for a drill press or a miter saw when angled.

I coupled it to regular 2 1/2” hose hooked to my shop vac. Then formed it so it was within 1” of the drill. Since the drill spins clockwise, I oriented the opening off center to the left. I pushed back on the right of the hose to keep it from getting caught up.

Worked great. Drilled 56 15/16” holes with a forstner bit 3” deep. All but 3 chips were sucked into the shop vac. The ones that weren’t were on top of the bit and fell off.

I am very satisfied. No time wasted vacuuming while drilling and after.
End of the hose against the work piece and retracted the top right edge to keep it from catching.

Is the 2 1/2 ID or OD?
Larry P on Apr 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: OD is almost 3", ID is 2 1/2. It's made to attach to https://www.rockler.com/2-1-2-screw-end-hose-adaptor, ultimately making the OD 2 1/4.
You would not be able to use a hose clamp on this material without risking cracking it.
can this hose be cut/shortened and still connect to rigid fittings with a hose clamp? Or do I need to get the clear hose?
THE OLD WOODWORKER on Oct 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I really don’t know, as I did not attempt to cut mine. I would think this would be a question Rockler should be able to answer for you. Sorry I’m not any better help. Jim
What is the tightest bend you can make with this? The port faces the wall and is about 4" from the wall; I need to make a 90 degree turn to get from the port to the blast gate. Will it bend that tightly?
Allan on Feb 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve been able to bend it double and it works fine
The idea is great but there are no suggestion/s on how to and what to mount the hose with to an all metal machine such as a drill press or a bandsaw. Can anyone help?
Guy G on May 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used mine to attach to the boot from my table saw. The boot moves with the blade, but I wanted an easy access to attach my dust hose, so I attached one end of the flex hose to the dust port on the boot and the other end to the side of the table saw with a 2 1/2" clamp I purchased from Rockler and 2 sheet metal screws.
