Re: Getting hoses off

If I don't need to save the hose, I'll just use the Dremel tool to cut it off. A couple of slices up and down the hose, even wire reinforced hose, wherever you can reach it, and you've saved lots of time. All you need to do is know the thickness of the hose, which you can get from the other end for your depth setting.
