    How crushed is it? If it is not working right, buy a new lower tube. They don't cost much.

    Maybe you don't need the lower part. If you take it off, the CFM actually increases. The down side is that you can't get as close to what you were blowing as before (unless you are really short).

    Dude, don't be such an a-hole. The lower part of the tube is fine except it is now bannana shape instead of circular. I am just going to replace the last section. Thanks anyway for your constructive help.
