Connecting new style braided hose to old style
« on: October 09, 2018, 08:12 PM »
Is there any reason to use the vac end fitting and coupler when joining an old d27 to the new braided d27 to make a longer hose? I bought them with my new hose but now realize the old hose tool end slip fits inside the new braided hose vac end connector. Should I return the vac end and coupler pieces?

The hoses will connect without any couplings or other pieces. Hose to hose is all you need.
