LocLine Modular Vaccuum Hose

Review Summary

How do you catch dust when routing free-hand on a router table? LocLine bends, twists, and can be lengthened or shortened (by adding or removing hose segments) to put the inlet in the best chip-collecting position. You can install it permanently, but we opted to mount LocLine’s Shop-Vacuum Hose Adapter with Mounting Tab to a piece of scrap that we clamp to the router table when we need it, or move it to other dust-producing tools, such as the drill press or scrollsaw.

Not all that for drill press use !

Review Summary

I have had this mounted on my drill press for several years now but haven't used it much, since it's either not long enough or bendy enough to get it where I need it. Most drill press tables don't stay in the same height position and this item isn't easy or fast enough to add or subtract length to for frequent use at different positions of the drill press table.
You would be better off using one of those hoses that are easily expanded or contracted, at least for use on a drill press. Those types of hoses are also a little more flexible as well , which helps in setting the hose in just the exact position you need it.
