      No the pin is strong. They usually break right at the swivel joint.

        Does it appear to be a fatigue issue.If so I'll replace it after a short work period.

          I don't work them enough to have a fatigue issue. Usually it's a stuck in the hundred year old 1-1/2" cast iron double sanitary tee issue. That's always where the stoppage is for me at least. I use a bent bald end of the cable to work that area til it breaks loose. Then follow up with a worm or bulb head.

          The Ridgid MicroDrain has taken all the guess work out of these back-to-back situations.
