Hi, I've got 2 air-way hoses that are losing alot of suction.
Does anybody know if an original cloth/weave hose can be rebuilt? Can the cloth be slid off the hose and put on another hose? Or- can that spray stuff that you put in your car's tires to fix a flat be used? I know that idea is pretty far out there, and I've got a couple vinyl hoses to use so I can at least use the machines, but I really want to be able to use the original hoses.

Barring that, does anyone know a place where one can order a cloth hose for the airway? My local vac shop put the airway ends on an electr-lux hose for me, but the original airway hose is about 2 ft longer.
