Josh wrote in about an incredibly good deal on Loc-Line’s 2.5″ vacuum hoses.
I found the Loc-Line vacuum hose after clicking around on your third hands article. Amazon has what may be some kind of price mistake, the 2ft sections of loc-line vacuum hose are priced at $4.12 instead of $30-ish. I bought 10, figure I’ll use it for my shop’s dust collection somehow.
These hoses are made from segmented links which gives them some rigidity but also adjustability.
The last time I bought Loc-Line 2.5″ hose sections, which was in July 2013 (I have since bought some of the anti-static hose segments), I paid $28.07. It’s on sale now for $4.12 for 2x 12″ sections.
I don’t know if it’s a price mistake as Josh believes, as it could also be “we want this out of our warehouse NOW” pricing.
Each package comes with around 2-feet of hose. Note: these are the regular hoses, and not the anti-static ones.
Update: These look to be sold out (for now?)

You will also need other Loc-Line vacuum parts to work as nozzles, and adapters to connect this to standard vacuum ports.
My advice: if this is something you’re interested in, buy a couple of sections of hose now, and plan the rest out after your order is in.
