Default Wurth air hose repair video

Don't think this has been posted here.

I'm thinking of trying this out (the couplers that is).

A takeoff of the AeroQuip reusable fittings for hydralic and air lines. In fact I do not know why you could not use a #6 for 3/8" and a #8 for a 1/2" hose repair. The AeroQuip, or StatroFlex reusable ends should certainly be capable of handling pressure of less than 200 psi, since they are easily capable of working with hydralic pressures of @2500 psi.

Most any hardware store and most Napa stores can put new ends on for a couple bucks. Cool system but the last time I had one repaired it was only $3, I would rather have a correct end for less money.

I'll try to log on from work and check prices. My understanding is that some (all?) of the couplers are rebranded. I'm wondering what the quality is like. If I can, I'll order just one of each to try.

I agree with above that it's worth having a set up like this. It can save time, and given that there's only so many hours in the day, last thing I want to do is take it to NAPA to have it fixed.

@Billymade. If you're interested, I established an on-line account to check prices. I understand that, on products in general, reps are able to offer better pricing or specials or break up a case in some instances, so you don't have to meet certain minimums.

I'd be willing to look up anything your curious about. I notice that the German-made tool cabinet/cart is about $700-$800. It looks nice enough.

I haven't checked out all prices but some of their "material removal" stuff (grinding discs, flap wheels, bits, etc) is I bet, more expensive than MSC or McMaster.

I wonder if the couplers are American/German or whatever. I'm going to try some out when I place an order and report back

You can, I have #4 fittings on a 1/4" hose.

Hey, I just had the ends on our hoses redone @ our local hydraulics shop but I still think these Wurth ends looked like a better solution; they could be reused and just cut the end of the hose off.... reconnect the repair couplers... once again! I would be interested in knowing how much the repair ends cost.

These fittings are manufactured by the John Henry Foster Co of Springfield, MO, every else is simply reselling them. We use the exact type at work, except that, rather than a male pipe thread on the end, we have the ones with air couplings manufactured right on them, or male air nipples.

Go to this link and scroll down to about middle page, where it says "Reusable Hose Clamp". These are standard industrial interchange nipples and couplers with the brass ferrule and screw into the hose. they are either 1/4 or 3/8 ID and the second number, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8 etc is the OD of the hose (its got to be a rubber hose as the brass ferrule screws into the rubber jacket with a left hand thread to hold it on.

At work we use the SB-3-3 coupler and matching nipple for most work, for the 3/8 hose we use the SD7-3 and matching nipple.

http://www.jhf.com/Catalog08/0462.pdf

_______________________

On this next page, are the hose ends like shown in the video, with pipe thread on the ends of them, also they have one with a build in free swivel to allow you to hard plumb to a device (such as making a whip hose for a rivet gun) and allows the hose to swivel.

http://www.jhf.com/Catalog08/0486.pdf

___________________

Here is the index page to most of the couplings, etc.

http://www.jhf.com/Catalog08/0458.pdf

Here is the index to the entire catalog.

http://www.jhf.com/Catalog08/INDEX.pdf

You will find arrows at the bottom of each page, and the page numbers are links also.

I've been repairing my air hoses for a number of years, but I use the crimped ends. I've used the process that was shown in the video, but they seem to come apart a few times on me. Just didn't like them. The crimped style works really well and is easy; cut the hose, slide on sleeve over end of hose, push in barbed end of fitting into hose end and crimp. The crimper is very simple, it looks like a split block with a hole in it; held together with tongs. You slide this over the crimp sleeve and put the assy into the vise and close the vise; that is all there is, you get a nice tight crip. You can usually reuse the barbed inside piece, and replace the crimped sleeve; they are about $0.60. I think that the crimper cost me about $20, maybe 10 years ago. Most good welding stores or well stocked hardware stores should have the pieces, but I'd call around first. If anyone is interested, I'll try to get the mfg info.

I like the crimped style so much that I've been trying to locate the sleeve and might make my own crimper to do water hoses; it doesn't seem like you can ever find a good water hose repair part.

What was the brand of crimped hose fittings you used? The problem with the Wurth/Foster seems to be (as pointed in another post above) that you can only use it on rubber hoses.

I don't mind switching the few hoses I have remaining in synthetics to rubber.

Though I saw that hose that CJEN makes (resells? I don't know) and am checking prices on that.
