      Edsan91,

      There is a very common mis-conception that the cable actually attaches to something inside the drum. Technically is does not! Follow these steps to get your tool working again:

      1. Remove the bracket on the rear of the drum by removing the 3 screws.
      2. Feed the cable through the rear of the drum.
      3. Grab the cable by hand, bend and feed it back into the drum so that it coils around the drum (either direction is fine).
      4. Feed at least 2-3 feet back into the drum by pushing it into the drum from the front.
      5. Re-attach the bracket on the rear of the drum from step 1.
      6. Connect the handle or attach your drill and feed cable back into the drum by spinning the drum counter clockwise and holding the feed trigger on the front of the tool.

      Please remember in the future there is nothing connecting the cable to the drum. The torque of the cable being wound inside the drum is what provides the force to allow the cable to rotate when the drum is turned. If there is not enough cable wound inside the drum to provide this torque you will need to repeat these steps to regain control of the cable.

          LOL, craps, that cracked me up.

          Ok then, now, interesting thing, I was at JmMkinney today, buying Rootx and a new expandable blade, a handyplumberman went in there, he has 2 of these power spins, he cleans drains with them for $25 a pop.

          He broke his and was complaining cause home depot will exchange it for a new one.

          I laughed and told him those Power spins were for home owners, not real plumbers.

          Good product, but they are for home owners, not professionals.

            Curses, just when I finally figured out the affordable way to break into drain cleaning.

                The thing goes next to the other thing. No, not that thing, the other thing.
