3" snap lock pipe is pretty durn cheap at the borg.
As a rule,the thinner gauges(30) causes less,and less issues as the diam goes down.....3" vs 8",for instance
Go snag a cpl 5' sections,snap'm together,beat the seams tight over a pipe mandrel.Then seal'm with joint sealer.If done correctly,it should yield a 10' rigid...slick(section of pipe).
Changing discussion lanes.....about the only thing I buy at "Woodcraft"(Roanoke store)is their,made in USA flex hose.Meaning,it's a touchy feely thing when it comes to DC hose.Not sayin there aren't some great deals on the web.....but buyer beware.Some of it sucks major,DAMHIK.Just an opine but,freshness counts on hose.
Was runnin a shaper(small C-man 1/2")through a 3"....which tied into a 4" vert....then into an 8" "main" today.The tuning that the 3" provides comin off the tool head is spot on.And yes,we've tried other diameters.
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
