    hello all
    The dust blower hose on my Dewalt saw will no longer stay in place. Has anyone replaced theirs ? Any tips or pointers to share?

    Thank you

    No I'm sorry, I should have noticed you were in the scrolling forum. We have a couple of scrollers around here, can't remember who at the moment though....

    If it's anything like some of the other tools I've got, If there is a bit of slack in the hose, cut 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch off the end that won;t stay on and then put it back on (The one ond on the fitting gets stretched out and if you cut back to beyond there it'll be tight usually) Otherwise, check with a local auto parts store for a plastic splice and a chunk of rubber vacuum line.

    I have had no problems with mine, but I believe you can possibly pull one of the links off( the one that will not stay on) and just snap the next on the connection. I will check it out more close in the morning to se if this is feasible .
