I am have trouble with the screw on my general cable connection unscrewing and the head coming off in line. It was bad with the 5/8 " cable almost every time I had to use my home made head retriever to get them out. Now my 3/4 " is starting to do it. I guess it is worn threads I keep the lock washer on and change screws they seem tight but it still comes off. I don't like the screw coupling of the general but I have a lot of cutters and I can convert most Ridgid cutters and Eel cutters to it I have the L adapter for it but I like some of the Ridgid cutters and general. I thought about cutting it for a bigger screw but I would have to drill the cutters for the bigger hole. I tighten it every time I go in any body got any thought on this . Something I could put on threads to keep them in place ?. a deferent kind of lock washer ? I switched to Ridgid because of the connecter but I don't like the drum connecters
No announcement yet.
