    So how old is that router anyway?

    You should be ashamed for letting your table saw rust. 😉

    Hey Steve!

    This is good for the OLD style hoses!

    BUT, have you seen the NEW Modern Ultra hoses that shrink up to a small handful when turned off?
    … they expand to full length when turned on… and shrink back to a very small handful when turned off… TWO for $12.99 25′ Guaranteed For Life and to never Leak! or your money back! If you have not seen them, I’ll try to find a link for them.

      those shrinking hoses aren’t worth the materials they’re made of…we have owned 6 of them and they are all in the trash….either the hose adapter broke or the little handle to turn the water on or off, or they just split open. and as far as the guarantee, you have to pay for both to ship it to them and the shipping to get a new one. That ends up being over $13 to replace it. Even if a “OLD STYLE” hose splits, you can by an splitter for $2 (that’s two) fix the hose in about 10 minutes and be back watering your garden….WOW I didn’t know I turned this into YWMM (Yard Working for Mere Mortals) LOL

      Thanks for the info… Don’t have one but was thinking about it… They have upgraded it to the ULTRA where the hose adapter is made out of heavy plastic material that can take 400 psi+ and NOT show any damage… Guaranteed for LIFE… $12.99 for two…

      Is this the one you’re talking about or the 1st one (not Ultra)??

      It makes no difference, Joe. Both versions are total crap. The only thing they’re good for is siphoning money out of your wallet and into the bank accounts of the folks selling them.

      Best tip I ever got about garden hoses: Buy the Craftsman Brand (black) Garden Hose (my local Sears and K-Mart stores stock a 50′ length). Hose is tougher than nails, flexible, durable, and includes Craftsman’s true Lifetime Warranty. If the hose fails for *any* reason, take it back to the store and they’ll hand you a new one.
