Re: Dripless shaft seal

Wade,

   The exhaust hose is good for it’s intended application and but it is not as strong as the much thicker 5 ply hose sold specifically for stuffing boxes.  The hose that I use is by Buck Algonquin and has about a 3/8” wall thickness. 

    I am pretty sure that my Maramu has a 35mm shaft but perhaps yours was changed?

Best,

James
