Repairing Air Hoses

Learn the differences between materials and three easy fixes that can make a damaged hose as good as new  

Length: 6:32
Produced By: John Ross

Today's air hoses come in a variety of materials suitable for a variety of jobs. Fine Homebuilding editor Justin Fink explains the differences between rubber, nylon, and polyurethane air hoses and describes situations where one choice would be more practical than another. Justin also offers three easy fixes should your air hose become cracked, punctured, or lopped off by a runaway PEX-tubing cutter (it happens).

For more in-depth information on the topic, read Air Hoses: The Lifeline of Your Pneumatic Tools from Fine Homebuilding issue #201 (February/March 2009), pp. 70-73.
