  • Looking for a drill adapter?

    Anyone know where I can get a drill adapter for General 5/8" sectional cable and 7/8" sectional cable.

    Fits in a Timberwolf or similar drill one might want to use. Could have sworn someone actually made one for both sizes. Maybe not.

    Thanks.

    Ben took his male adapter and shank to a machinist.

      pretty easy to make. buy a coupling for the cable and either weld or drill/ turn a 1/2'' shaft on it. i used a grade 5 bolt 5/8'' and machined the end down to 1/2'' with a hex to grip my chuck, no slipping.

      pretty easy for a machine shop to adapt your replacement coupling.

      i would not advise the 5/8'' cable on a heavy drill. too easy to over do it

      7/8'' x 15' is also a little long for an open line to spin. you need shorter sections to play it safe.
