2.5 inch clear hose
Great hose, was to be 10 feet long but a nasty machine at the post office turned it into a 7 foot piece, and i never did get the extra 3 foot back from USPS, no problem, Rockler replaces it ASAP no charge. Great customer service on their part

Hose makes a big difference in keeping the area of work clean. It easily carries whatever sawdust comes out of my electric planer or router to a large container. It saves my time from extra sweeping my shop.

Vacuum Hose
Not much you can say about a hose, but I really liked the flexibility of it, not stiff.

Bruce K on Dec 1, 2018
Quality hose. If you have bridging hose clamps like me, watch out for the direction of the coiling. Rockler's bridge hose clamps will fit this one. But I found out the hard way that other brands hose, while great quality, are coiled in the opposite direction making the bridging hose clamps no better than a traditional hose clamp.

I bought the 4" version of this and it worked great. I had bought some other "collapsible" 2 1/2" that won't stay extended and is REALLY maddening. I expect this will work as well as the 4" stuff I already have.

I like being able to see any obstruction in a clear hose. I'm hoping this hose is a good compromise between flimsy and too rigid for a retrofit riving knife mounted table saw guard.

yes, you don't say in your description how long a section this is??????
A shopper on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If a person could stretch it with machinery, it might be 10'. But as it is, with normal human strength, it will stretch out to about 8'+, 9' if your lucky. Let's just say it is a "nominal" 10 footer, because it sure isn't an actual 10 footer!

Bradford T on Oct 16, 2017
