Recently I've been visiting a childhood friend (who is an excellent musician) and who has been going through the motions of marriage and bearing children for sometime now.
While I ensure that my weekends involve drinking some beer, playing some music and generally fooling around after taking off that game-face for work throughout the week. Some folks call it winding down, downtime and so on and so forth… and there's never been a week when visiting him is eventless!
He has a young son who evidently darts around like a fish screaming 'bloody rage' shooting arrows and brandishing King Arthur's fabled sword, desiring a melee.
One way or another, my presence seems to be like welcome relief for his dad, and of course, one can acknowledge that he's well on his way to be a man's man.
And this perception of ours is based on a simple incident that happened at school. Apparently, the 10th grade students were playing a game of soccer, and this little rascal found it fitting to hose them down with an abundant flow of water which was turned up full blast. Of course, there was one thing we both agreed to… the hose turns out to be quite a handy implement in all sorts of situations! Of course, the little kid's fantasy was to be a fireman of sorts…
The Various Types of Hoses and their Benefits
Speaking of hoses, most of us are familiar with the proverbial fire and garden hose that has become a part of our lives for sometime now, and for very different purposes.
But the bottom line of these hoses are to transport air, water or any other material that can flow from place to another. At another level, pipes are also used for these purpose but they lose out to hoses due their lack of flexibility.
And apart from these conventional types, there exists the dust collection hose that is normally not used for personal purposes but in places that use heavy machinery for industrial machinery such as workshops and so on and so forth.
When fragments of metal, wood and particleboard are released into the air due to these machines, it can turn out to be a health hazard by affecting those who are exposed to it in several ways such respiratory ailments, skin problems, liver or kidney ailments or damage to the eyes. This "dust" can also cause machinery to fail and a dirty work area that is not only unsafe for its workers but slows production down drastically.
And this is where a dust collection system using a dust collection hose acts as a vacuum and collects these fragments, hence, bringing safety levels in the workspace back to acceptable levels.
There are dust collection hoses that are available based on the types of dust needs to be collected such as metal, wood or general dust. So be careful when you wish to purchase one of these hoses for your workspace.
Speaking of which, one can find the appropriate type of dust collection hose over the internet by doing a little Google search or at your nearest hardware store.
And one can only imagine what the little rascal would do if he laid his hands on one of these hoses…
