RV hose fitting
When I recently remodeled my shop, I installed a dust-collection system and enclosed the ductwork within my shop walls. But I soon had more equipment than outlets and no easy method of adding more collection ports.
To make my limited number of ports serve more machines, I bought some recreational vehicle (RV) sewer hose fittings, as shown below. With these, I can quickly disconnect the hose from one machine and connect it to another machine nearby. The crush-proof rubber hose flexes easily, and extends to reach several machines. The fittings lock down tight--thanks to their waterproof rubber seals--yet release with a quick twist.
