    This came from inside a Shark vacuum and I’m having no luck asking Google to find it for me. It’s heavy duty vacuum hose with spiral wire reinforcing. Measures 1.2” or 30mm ID. Anyone know where I should look in the Charlotte area?

    Did you try HD or Lowes plumbing dept? Over by the bulk hoses.

    I've sourced a lot of project parts there.

    Tried Lowes first. They had the right product, wrong size. Going to a couple more hardware stores tomorrow am.

    Internet search? If you have the dimensions you should find something. ..

    I have bought similar in the past. Vacuum repair shop. Many are also sewing machine repair places.

    Call Himebaughs. They are in the strip mall where the Black Lion is, near Park Rd Ext and Hwy 51.

    If you get desperate enough to drive to Hickory, the Oreck store services all brands of vacuums cleaners.

    Thanks for all the good suggestions guys. I started my quest at Pott's Hardware, with Little next on my list. The guys at Pott's pointed me to distributor around the corner from them. I went to the City counter feeling like a small-fry customer what with needing only 1 linear foot of hose. They handed me 1 foot each of three products very close to my sample, shook my hand and wished me luck with my project. no charge.

    So here's a plug for the good guys at Catawba Industrial Rubber Company, just off Billy Graham Pkwy

    If you need a weird hose, they'll have it.

    I used to buy from them at my last job. If the outside sales guy's name is "Cooter" you know they're good guys.
