Someone explain to me how to attach AN hose ends.

I think i got it figured out, but I want to make sure I do it right.

Ive been searching the net and this site for 20 minutes and have found nothing on how to attach these hose ends.

I have summit Braided line and hose ends, but I doubt that matters.

My tip? don't use masking tape, it only helps a little.

use a worm hose clamp, and cut along the edge of that. Works so much better.

I have noticed some ends and hoses are easier to get together. I've used Aeroquip, Earl's and Goodridge and Goodridge seems to always go together much easier than the rest. FWIW.

I don't use a hack saw either. I like to use a cut off saw. it makes a staight cut and doesn't fray the braid. larger hoses are easier than the -4 and -6.

Clamp - Good idea! I like that one. And the cutoff wheels work sooo much better than a hacksaw.
