    Hi guys,
    I am hoping someone could help me with an issue concerning an old Wait Primus Stove Hose.
    I am looking to get a longer hose or an extension for it. Though I am told everywhere, that such a thing does not exist and noone seems to have adapters or is willing to take the old connections off and reinstall them on a longer hose.
    Any leads on where I could get something useful or how I could do the switch myself?
    Much appreciated!
    Cheers!

    Use those connectors for a longer hose. Carefully file or grind off the squeezed clamping around the hose at connectors. Fit connectors to a longer hose with squeezed clamp or screwed clamp.

    Thank you Afterburner. We have considered that, but we are a bit worried about leaks. Any thoughts on that?:)

    You could try a web search for "hose repair".
    Companies that specialize in the repair hydraulic hoses should be able to build a longer hose.

    After hose is ready test leaks with water+soap solution or leak detector that is sold in spray cans. Also propane is odored so if there is leaks you can smell them quite fast.

    Thanks so much David,
    We found a propane specialist via the „hose tepair“ Search word. Turns out extension hoses for tigwr torches are what we needed and a simple adaptor and extension hose did the trick! Thanks for the hint:)
