          Rick, what type of connection do Gene and you use to connect the 1.25 cable to the Timberwolf ?You fellows have lit the spark of interest and I am going to try this method.
          depending on the cable you chose to use, you need a coupling that fits the rear end of the cable.

          in my case the cable is general innercore. i adapted the drive coupling that fit the 5/8'' gear shaft.

          grabbed a 5/8'' grade 5 bolt, cut off the head which leaf a nice smooth 5/8'' shaft for the coupling. drilled a hole for the roll pin to lock the coupling to the bolt. then carefully grinded 3 flats at 120 degrees apart into a hex to fit the 1/2'' timberwolf chuck. this allows for a nice firm grip without slippage. remember that the drill is used for both pushing and pulling. you don't want to drop the adapter from the chuck.

          i use 10' lengths of cable. 15' can work with proper care. i also have a 4' section when 10' is too sloppy at the stoppage. with a good feel of the cable and low speed 300rpm with clutch, you can be safe.

          always keep the cable from looping and make sure the drills switch is not sticky

          for a ridgid cable, you would need the male replacement coupling and some fancy machineing to attach the arbor to. i actually made an adapter to run ridgid cutters on my general cable. a friend with a machine shop is a bonus

          good luck and be careful until you have the proper feel of this powerhouse.

              That is only some of one set of keys I think he adds in dummy keys to try to throw me off. Don't worry boys I can still get in the shop (just in case)

                  Only one way to find out and end the discussion. Let's see how generous Joey is with the Christmas gifts this year. I call dibbs on the seesnake propack and a propress.
