Anyone know if you can patch a pneumatic air hose? I have a small hole in one and I would replace it but it is long and on a reel. Right now I have electrical tape with a hose clamp on it but it only works for a little while. Thanks for any help!

The only true way to "patch" the hose is to cut it and insert a "hose barb" into each end and utilize hose clamps to tighten the hose and keep it from coming apart. These fittings can be found at any automotive store.

Make 2 short hoses out of that one, and go buy a new one at Harbor Freight-I think they are under $15.00/50 feet!
