    I have a Charbroil Big Easy oiless turkey fryer which works great. The propane hose is only 3 ft, and I wanted to place it next to my Weber grill, and feed it from the grill's propane take.

    I currently run a four-way hose splitter to run water throughout the areas that I need it. It seems that once a year, I come home to that splitter, regardless if I bought the "heavy-duty" one, having blasted off of the hose bib and water has been running into the yard for hours. I know, turn...

    Hi all, I am trying to attach a 2" Dia rubber hose to a one inch flange (ledge) and cannot drill into it. Is there some sort of locking clamp that I can use to attach the hose to the flange?
