        Like Joey says it is cast iron but it is tapped and recessed.

            That's like most of the plumbers calling a flex coupler a "fernco" fernco is a mfg just like Durham

              i have mistakenly cleared a roof drain/ a.c condensate drain that turned out to be a 2'' no hub line with a trap.

              the 7/8'' k-60 with auger cutter was fun to get back.

              who would have guessed the roof drain was 2'' and had a trap


              and a durham trap is a bit#h even with the right cables.

              i can tell you that 1/2'' drum cable will never get around a 1.5'' durham trap. durham was a cast iron threaded tight pattern fitting, trap.

                      There is no room for a bar on a Durham trap as there is no space between the left and right side of the dip. The weir side is touching the atmospheric side.

                            A top snake is anything with a cable small enough to snake an 1 1/4" drain. It could be a drill type however, I prefer my K-50 with a bulb adapter to my K-39. The truth is I do not use top snakes very often because a 5/8" cable in my K-50 or K-60 does a much better job of cleaning then a top snake ever could.

                            Right. So when you snake out a bathtub drain you automatically know you did a better job with your sectional? X-ray vision perhaps?

                            As far as drum machines I think I can figure out how to use them. As I have posted before every truck in my shop had a selection of sectionals and drum machines. However, the sectionals always got more use than the drums because they did a better job.

                            More nonsense.

                            Practice some more with your drums, you just might begin to like them......

                              A 5/8" cable will always do a better job than a 5/16" cable and you don't need x-ray vision to know that. As far as practicing with my drum machines I did not keep any when I sold my shop. I've never disliked drum machines and I believe there is a place for them on a plumbing truck I just don't believe they are as versatile as a sectional machine.

                                I have a small 1/2 50` drum machine that will get through this with no problem


                                I`d like to see the K-60 do one
