    Re: Flatpack/mini reel

    unless things have changed

    only the full size seesnake has the self leveling option.

    all systems are avaliable in color

      Thanks Rick. Next question would the flat pack have different size rod than my 325 plus? I need to be able to get it around 4" traps without the risk of stressing/breaking the rod. Thanks in advance

        Flatpack cable is way different than your 325' cant push it anywhere near as long and yes the cable in it will do 4 inch traps. It will also snap easier if you abuse the cable. Much thinner cable.

        Also.. the flatpack doesn't have a slipring inside. Its a much simpler design than the compact or bigger reels

              I think ill keep lugging my dvd unit into jobs for now and maybe invest in the dvd pack later. Thanks for the help Rick and Josh.
              PS Where are all the people from Aussie land.
              Also Rick i read somewhere that you referred to our direction of flow in our toilets as being backwards. When you guys get with the times and move to metric ill stop calling ya all backwards

                joey and i are off to new zealand in november. i'll grab a new micro drain and film the toilets internals

                sure hope that the reverse flush has the suction to suck everything down

                you're right. metric is better it's easier to work with.

                problem is that it's more than just using a different tape measure.

                our standard / common construction lumber is a 2x4. it currently measures 1.5'' x 3.5''. approx.38mm x 89mm.

                how about or pipe sizes. are the metrics interchangeable with our dimensions. 1/2'' copper measures 5/8'' od. = .625''
                3/4'' measures 7/8'' od.= .875''
                1'' measure 1 1/8'' = 1.125''

                so what are your standard pipe sizes?

                is there a metric equivalent to match our dimensions?

                of course this is just an example of the glitch.


                now back to that flatpack

                it's a no thrills camera package. sure the quality is 100% but the camera cable has it's limits due to flex and the reel is more of a cage that holds cable. no frills. good if you want a camera in every truck, but not for serious camera inspections.

                how about a november meeting

                  ok here goes.
                  Mostly all our pipes are measured ID.

                  Our copper would suit yours exactly.

                  Our normal lumber size for housing frames is 90/35mm exactly which isnt far off yours.

                  Our DWV drain/waste/vent pipe (pvc) is
                  40mm=1 1/2"/50mm=2"/65mm=just over 2 1/2"
                  80mm=3 1/4"/100mm=3 15/16"/150mm=5 7/8'' and so on.

                  Excuse my metric way of explaining the imperial.( in the last two)

                  There is one thing that shouldnt change and thats the measurement of speed. Mph is easier for me for my love of motorsport had me understanding mph long before I could drive.
                  Short story my brother was driving an early model datsun/nissan along the freewayhighway with my dad in the passenger seat and me in the back.
                  My brother was whitenuckled wondering why everyone else on the road was going so slow!!!
                  You guessed it my brother was well over 110mph before dad could calmly tell him that the guage was not klmph.
                  Imperial folk nearly killed us all

                  If your visiting Australia in November well have to catch up!!
                  Let me know oz

                    Rick I'll be near you in July and August.
                    I am sailing in San Francisco in the last weekend in July then I am going back towards the end of August for two weeks.
                    I am sailing with an American, it would seem you guy's are short of good sailors and are keen to import anyone, even from the land down under.

                      simon, haven't you ever heard of dennis conner

                      san francisco is a 5-6 hour drive. toolaholic is very close to s.f.

                      can't you just sail south a few hundred miles

                      a couple wrong tacks? will get you off track

                      keep us informed and maybe joey and i will buzz you on a jet ski

                      why not san diego

                        Very interesting, why buy a dvd pack for 1k+ when the sony recorder does the same (or almost) for 150? You do understand that you, as one person, cannot pull Emerson out of the recession?

                              DVDPak is a full functioning monitor and dvdrecorder. Power supply. OLED display, microphone, etc. You might be thinking of the DVDBase it does have the sony as its guts but its way more than that, audio recording, battery power, weatherized, line trace capable, etc.
