    Re: Ok time for change

    I've got two main drain calls and a toilet flange replacement, toilet reset with a swelled up foot from yesterday.


    Time for heavy drugs and the notion I'll be sitting on $500 plus when I get home, in pain.

      My K-60 with 150' of 7/8" and 50' of 5/8" was $2200 new.

        I'm thinking about a wooden-handled awl. Haven't tried it yet.

          herk, if you go with the awl. grind the end to a 45 to assist in pushing the pin and keep from poking yourself. a 7/32'' shaft will fit perfectly.

            My first 25' of cable is destroyed. Just loaded the machine up, couldn't do anything with it as it's a corkscrew.


            I'm almost positive that came from duracable as well....


            Not only am I not long enough in the bedroom, I'm going to be coming up short in the drains today....jeez.


            I'm looooookin' for some online counselin' today....little help? Little help out dere?

            EDIT:

            Oh cool! Montel Williams is on. Hopefully his tear machine is broke today....I'll do all the cryin'.

              I use a 3/16x6 phillips screwdriver from northern tool. You don't even need to cut the end off and it works just fine. The handle is triangular so it doesn't roll off roofs. I think it cost 4-6$.
              Buy cheap, buy twice.

                    Re: Ok time for change

                    I run a K1500 for main line stoppages and it does a great job. I would love to get a K60 just for the weight factor. By the end of the day I am pretty tired and my shoulders are killing me from carrying 120' 1 1/4" cable down basement steps.

                    Some guys dream of cars, I dream of drain cleaning machines and plumbing tools.
                    Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.

                      I think durcable makes cable for sled style machines. so the drum is way bigger. thats why some guys might be having trouble with there cable. or there cable sucks. I'm betting on it being to stiff for smaller drums.

                        I'll be the first to admit, I was running 4 sections and a leader in my 300 and that is way too much cable for the drum.

                        Heavier as well. I had that 4th section on there since last year and even though it's super heavy to get up and down steps, feels good to know I'm going out 102' before I grab the 5th section.


                        Most times, I never have clogs past 70' as the norm. I'm in suburbia land.


                        Now those 1/4" open hooks..............JUNK. But like I said......I shouldn't expect much for 18 dollars for a cable when I"m used to spending 55 dollars for the same....that lasts.

                            I tried a wooden-handled awl from the tool box last night and it works perfectly. And you don't have to turn it in any specific direction. It will double as a defense against rabid sewer rats!

                              Just be careful not to forget it in the cable. It really does turn into a weapon as it goes flying through the air.
