    the way to do it is as bhd said. forward it would thread open and reverse it would thread closed. a pretty simple design.

      What's wrong with a leader kinked so the cutter whips? Works for me, and seems a whole lot easier, cheaper, and idiot proof.
      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

        No, we do read your posts! My only problem with a screw type opener/closer would be the worry of getting dirt in the mechanism and having a 6 inch cutter that needs to be pulled back through a 4 line. It would be possible however if the screw assembly was completely encloses so that it would not be possible for ANY dirt to get in and keep it moving freely.

        Another problem with a threaded opener would be that it might get jammed if you apply too much torque to the cable. A pin type end might solve that problem though but I would be a little worried about getting it stuck open.

            AAHHHH, apparently nobody reads my posts either!

            That's what I was trying to say - threads can always get stuck open/closed.

                So does anyone here know any CAD? We need to draw up some ideas and prototype our "operator controlled expanding cutter" or OCE cutter for short.

                  id. i read your posts. but apparently some people don't. but then again maybe they do. designing this should not be to hard. finding anyone other than plumbing rick to buy it might be a problem. breid..................

                    Well, if Rick likes it, I'm sure he'll talk about it enough to where others buy it too He already convinced God knows how many people to buy a K60 and half those people probably don't even do drain cleaning

                            Good point, you aren't doing anything, so when Ridgid starts producing these and gives us all free cutters for coming up with the idea, WE will let them know YOU weren't part of US.

                              So how about something like this?





                              Of course, you'll have to excuse my crude animation, I'm just a plumber

                              And there will have to be a spring loaded hinge at the black of the cutter blades, that's up to the pros to figure out.

                              Any opinions?

                                aram, excellent video adaptation i think you missed your calling

                                basically it's a positive locking expanding cutter.

                                truthfully the already existing 4'' x 6'' expanding cutter only needs a stronger spring and it will be perfect.

                                there are times we run in reverse and that will cause the cutter to retract with your design. and forward will cause it to expand. unless you have some spring to absorb the minor offsets, you'll be fighting a cutter that is caught on fittings and offsets.

                                i have a few expanding cutters and all i need are stiffer springs

                                have you tried the ridgid expanding cutters yet?
