  • K-39AF - No Core Or Inner Core ?

    What are you guys running in your K-38 - K-45 machines with 5/16" cable, no core or inner core ? Would the inner core cable stay in one piece if the outer cable broke allowing you to retrieve the cable ?

    I run 5/16" inner core......the other stuff seems too limp for most pipes.

      1/4" innercore. I rarely rod a drain that isn't galvanized pipe and cast iron fittings. 1/4 is all that can make the turns without damaging the piping.

      I've never had a 1/4" or 5/16" cable break in a line. Kinked a few, sure.

        I am still running the factory 5/16th ic cable that came with it. Probably 30 plus jobs and still good as new.

          the factory i/c is a plastic core and is not going to allow you to pull it out.

          neither will the wire core. the plastic doesn't rust and holds up really well.

          believe it or not the 5/16'' i/c is actually more flexible than the 1/4'' ic as the wire gage is the same, but the 5/16'' is not as tight a wind.

          the 1/4'' was not designed for the auto feed either.

            I have used both inner core and non inner core. I currently use the 5/16" non innercore, I just seem to like it better.
