Software evaluate: Infinity “Fast-Snap” vacuum hose and adapters


Vacuum hose and adapters by Infinity
$70

{The marketplace} is plagued by adapters for connecting store vacuums to energy instruments, and so is my store. But I nonetheless have a couple of irritating connections that require frequent functions of duct tape, an imperfect answer at greatest.

The actual answer seems to be Infinity’s new “Fast-Snap” hose and adapter equipment. At 16 ft. lengthy, the crush-proof hose is an improve over most vacuum hoses, with a common 2-1⁄4-in. finish that matches into nearly all vacuums available on the market (measure the within diameter of your inlet to make sure).

However the true story is on the different finish of the hose, the place a quick-click connector snaps into 4 grippy, versatile rubber adapters. Accessible in diameters of three⁄4 in., 1 in., 1-1⁄4 in., and 1-1⁄2 in., the adapters have ribbed, tapered interiors which are very exhausting to shake free in use. And two have tapered exteriors as effectively, filling in gaps between the 1⁄4-in. increments.

The equipment additionally features a answer for the bigger ports on transportable machines: an additional quick-click 1-1⁄2-in. adapter, with a typical plastic adapter that steps it as much as 2-1⁄4 in., excellent for my benchtop sander and job-site tablesaw.

For the primary time in my woodworking profession, my two store vacs join rapidly and securely to each energy instrument and small machine in my store.

By the best way, in case your vacuum hose has a kind of two-button connectors on the top—my Bosch and Fein fashions each do—the Infinity adapters will pop proper on, letting you purchase the adapter equipment with out the hose for simply $36.
