I have just bought a second hand dust extractor, elekra beckham (something) 1100.

i paid £25 plus the bits that get added at local auctions but theres no hoses just the machine and cloth bag. i have tested it a put a thick black bag on the bottom until i can get a clear one, like to see the chips spinning :lol: :lol:

the question is, im on a very tight budget, wife and kids :lol: , i need hoses or at least a 2mtr to start with, where can i get one cheap, i guess i cant use the white type ones for saftey reasons. any suggestions or help as to wheres and what fors please

thanks gents.

all the best.
Phil.

Hi Active
Have you looked at the Charnwood Woodworking Machines site. They are based in coalville leicestershire, they sell a 100 dia hose which will stay put when it is bent to shape, also lots of other sizes of hose and fittings, prices are usually resonable too. try here http://www.charnwood.net/

Phil,

RS componentes stock a massive range of ducting, I will be placing an order with them next week but it works out cheaper than buying through Charnwood. Minimum length is 5m.

The reason I am buying from them is that they have a presence here in Ireland, so no pesky exchange rates, and huge transport costs.

Is this it - FibreglassPVC flexible ducting,100mmx10m, code 257-9132?

£29.75 + VAT (= £34.96) is very cheap for that ducting.

Do you order as a private consumer or through work?

Cheers,

Pete

Pete,

the one I am going for is Superflex PU L/R, light wieght, polyurethane, 100mmx5m code 413-9180 €58.40

I am buying through my company as it saves me paying the VAT.

'pollogies - €58 is actually £40 - I live in euro world! It is also probably more expensive anyway here - everything else is!

My wife has banned me from skips for the time being until I use up the timber I have already got.

She used to spot them for me walking the dogonalead.
Had to do dogonalead as one word because if you type that into google??????????
