  • east coast vs west coast

    friday oh lets say .... 7:30ish pm (est)

    why do west coast framers prefer worm drive saws, as to east coasts side winders?

    what other tools are perfered (i.e. hammers) and where is the line drawn at?


    add what ever else that you would like to so long as we stay close to on topic.


    if the day and time is not good for you please place a post here and maybe it can be changed to another agreed upond date and or time.

    thanks hope to see you guys there.

    on the same night.

        I would say because east coast plumbers like to use the stronger machine an get the job done right. The only time I would see the drum machine as being used for myself would be inside a bathroom going through toilet location. But I still get that done with my sectional machine, Next.

          Re: east coast vs west coast

          I used to work in northern Virginia and used a Spartan drum machine (can't remember the model) to clear main stoppages. I loved it but it was a beast to move around by myself with 125' of cable. Luckily most houses there had a cleanout in the front yard and I would just run it from the truck. Now all my work is in Wash DC. mostly 100+ yr. old houses in Georgetown and Capital Hill. No cleanouts anywhere (unless you consider a running trap one). Most basement bathrooms have a 24" door opening Stuck using a 15 year old k-1500 w/sectional cables that spent half it's life in the shop being repaired. I hate that thing with passion what are my options??? Do they make a mid-size drum machine??

                              Maybe some of you can have your fun once we have gone to bed? Chat is open 24/7 so come on in when you can. You can even create your own "West Coast" chat room. Have fun
