    Oetiker clamps like WelderDave mentioned.



    I dislike gear type clamps for this application. Even when when using the optimum size there's always that "tail"hanging out.

    I already have those black pliers from when I was a car mechanic changing CV boots/joints. Can you tell me what size I would need for 1/4" twin hose, and inert hose? I don't know the size system they use. Unless I just look for 1/4"??? LOL

    Yup that’s exactly what the black pliers were designed for. CV joints.

    I’m quite certain there’s no sure fire way to determine clamp size due to different outside diameters of hose types. I would grab a handful of the four sizes closest to what you think you need to have on hand. Not very scientific but that’s what I do.

    Oetiker clamps are usually cheapest at hydraulic and hose shops where they have them in bulk. Buy as little or as much as you want without paying for prepacks.

    I got it today, thank you so much!

    When I'm done with it I promise to pass it along to someone else who can use it.

    Re: want used welding hose ferrule crimping tool

    Is there any difference between regular pneumatic air hoses and welding gas hoses, as far as the fittings and crimps are concerned? I was looking to make/fix some pneumatic hoses and got to thinking my welding cart would look a bit more tidy with shorter hoses.

    I'm familiar with and have the tools to crimp battery lugs/cable from 6 gauge up to 4/0. It would be awesome if my hydraulic crimper could be used to also crimp hoses, but finding dies to fit could be challenging.

    Welding hoses are flame resistant to a point and the nuts are specific for oxygen and fuel gas connections. Generally thicker wall than air hose and both hoses are joined together. Having separate hoses is a real PIA. They get caught on anything and everything. Fuel gas nuts are left hand thread so they can't be mixed up. You don't need a hydraulic crimper for welding hoses.

    I was thinking of picking up the Pex pipe pliers and rings to repair 3/8 and half inch air hoses. Reading this discussion over, is there going to be a problem getting collars that fit unless I go to a different supplier? Are the Pex crimps not going to be tight enough?

    Just get a handful of Oetiker clamps and use something like a CV boot clamp tool or end cutting pliers.

    That is the cheapest way and still look pro.

    Using the small automotive gear style clamps is for amateurs, plus the “tail end” always snags on sh*t. LOL.

    Oh and Pex 1/2" and 3/8" will not correspond in size to inert gas hose sizes.

    I've always tossed the gas hoses rather then mend them... it's usually the first sign of impending disaster unless you're changing the length or fitting. I was thinking more about air hoses. My 1/2" ones are still fairly new, but some of the old 3/8" could use attention.
