    1) We all know that no matter what, it will require a great deal of measuring, aligning, holding, etc. when, with a good lathe, there is essentially none of that. It's...

    Being a blind hole certainly helps lol

    This thread has a sort of McGuyver air to it....I somehow feel a hairpin, Q-Tip, or duct tape might help.

    OK...if you paid attention, you'd see I recommended high quality, US made hoses. Not ricer hoses. If they're good enough for NASCAR and Formula 1 cars, they're good enough for you.
