Back in 2019 I mentioned it here on this group, and it had been in use a while before that. I couldn't find when I had originally purchased it. It finally started having failures a couple days ago. This was the Rigid Pro Grade hose from the big box store. I seem to recall it was around 35-40 dollars. Looks like its almost $50 to replace it now.
I use it everyday to get the bulk of chips out of machine cabinets. (No fancy chip management in my shop sadly.) I'm actually still using it even though its failing. Looks like all those metal chips have worn through the inner side of the pleats in a couple places.
Given the volume of sharp metal chips that go through it everyday I don't think that's to bad. A lot better than the hoses the vacuums come with. I might just go buy a couple more of them.
