(back) Subject: Winding movable console From: <Mpmollerorgan@aol.com> Date: Sat, 29 Dec 2001 17:10:02 EST   One of the last things I need to do now that I have the console cable = bundle wrapped to keep it in a bundle, is finding a workable way to get wind to = the console. The 4" PVC in the basement has a tee that I have a 2" or 1-1/2" = line coming out of towards the console. I'll need to go from that PVC to the console but the catch is since the console is so heavy it is mounted on a platform I built for it with = casters so it can be rolled out into the room about 10 or 12 feet if need be to vaccuum behind it, clean or whatever. The cable bundle hangs down through the floor by the wall into the corner = of the basement below the console, and is long enough it can be drawn up or = let back down so the platform can be moved at any time necessary. Is there anything around that would work to be flexible or alternatively = be disconnectable at the floor quickly?   Randall http://members.aol.com/mpmollerorgan/

I know that the smaller size comes in lengths = of 25' or more, although they are fairly expensive. Also, they have disconnect fittings which would be a good thing for you.   At 05:10 PM 12/29/01 EST, Mpmollerorgan@aol.com wrote: >One of the last things I need to do now that I have the console cable = bundle >wrapped to keep it in a bundle, is finding a workable way to get wind to the >console.

I'll have to take a look at what Menards may have and the diameter hose.     Randall http://members.aol.com/mpmollerorgan/
