When I have enough for a collection they will all be summarized there.
This instrutable covers the use of junk hose to protect good hose ( like a compressor, gas line, or garden hose ).
Step 1: Tools Materials
Hose to protect: it must be small enough to insert into the junk hose. Some hose beyond repair. Usual small hand tools, sometimes some simple hardware, this is all pretty obvious.
Step 2: Make It – Strain Relief
My compressor hose fails all to often. ( Here is an example from instructables: Fixing a crimped compressor hose by gluefish Usually this is just at the connectors. This is a common problem because when you pull on the hose the forces tend to focus on the area around the connectors. You may have seen short sections of garden hose with a spring or wire around it to reduce the strain on the hose end. Here you add a short section of old hose to protect the compressor hose. The pictures make this pretty obvious.
