  • what would you have done?

    today i did my first fernco fibreglass sewer patch. it was great! here is the history though. late august i did a full repipe for a customer including a new 70' water service. my normal boring guys were on vacation so there boss sent out a different crew. they were in and out in 30 minutes. under driverway, crossing sewer,gas,power main, phone and cable. long story short after 6 months there sewer backs up. run my camera and theres a water line through the bottom 1/3 of the sewer 56' out under the driveway. so today we pull the water line out and bore a new line. but in order to do the fibrglass patch the walls need to be free of debri and there is a 1" bur on the entry side of where the bore head came in. what would you have used to clean that bur off?

      I would have got a K-60 and stuffed it in the hole as they are just great for every thing. You cant go wrong if you are using a K-60 to bore a hole, clean sewers, pull water lines or pull your truck out of a mud hole. I once saw a plumber using his for a jack stand while he was changing a flat tire. I`m gonna try the sand paper thing as I need to paint my service truck. Next week I may even use it to drill for oil out behind the shop

          Sounds like someone is getting tired of hearing about the K-60

                    I would use a holesaw bit connected to MY K60 THE BESTEST MACHINE ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET THAT CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS AND DRAIN SEAS AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT DON'T READ THESE POSTS AND WHY AM I SHOUTING AS I TYPE THIS!!!!!!!!

                    Wife just slapped me back to reality. If I was cutting pvc or abs pipe, I would get a hole saw blade and attach this to the end of the k60 cable. As cuda said, use seesnake in conjuction.

                      Well All Clear I just tried it as a sander and messed up my roadrunner pretty bad, tried for oil in the back yard and hit the Gas line
                      I use my drum machines but the k60 does have a faster rpm thats why I would have used it.

                        You should have called 1-800-Dig-Safe before drilling

                            Not that I have seen. I would have made one for the job then probably lost it for the next time I needed it.

                              I would have used a NEW 4" cutter on my 7500.
