Hydraulic Hose Made Out Of A 3-in. C-Clamp
Russell Rogotzke, Springfield, Minn.: 的 get frustrated trying to hook up hydraulic hoses whenever it warms up and a lot of pressure develops in the hydraulic line. I solved the problem by making a device out of a 3-in. C-clamp. I removed the swivel and drilled a depression in it so the tip of the coupler stays aligned. Then I welded iron onto the other end to hold the hose. A metal guard welded onto the clamp keeps any spraying oil away from me as I知 relieving the hose pressure.
展ithout this device I知 tempted to use a hammer, which damages the tip. Or, I have to loosen the connection which makes a mess, and then I have to retighten it. This eliminates all of that frustration. Be sure to buy a good clamp because it can take a hard turn of the clamp to get the job done.
