Given it looks like it might be a while yet before #5 gets closed, and that both extraction hoses barely reach out of the window at present, I think we should get some new hoses as an interim measure.

Sophia has a 4" hose, and will need at least 6' to reach out of the window. Gerald has a 6" hose and we'll need 9' to get out of the window. A bit longer would be good for both of them.

I've ordered 5m of 100mm (4") and 5m of 150mm (6") of this aluminium-lined PVC tubing.

I've also ordered a pack of 5 120mm and one 175mm jubilee clips, so we can fix the hoses on better than just taping them.

The hoses and jubilee clips have all arrived. I've stuck them on the bottom shelf of the laser-spares cupboard (the hoses are wrapped in a black plastic bag)

Sophia's exhaust is replumbed successfully. I ran out of both time and energy before Gerald could be completed.
