OT - Flange thing ()

I would call it a vacuum hose flange, its not a plumbing flange, though you might be able to make one of those using one if you have a lathe.

I would try to fix it as the other guys have outlined. Hose clamp, or even wire wrapped then epoxied would probably be better than new - that plastic wall was too thin for the stress, clearly. I've seen the same with a motor bearing pocket if you can believe it :D
