    Re: D'oh!! (while hand slaps forehead!)

    Oh thats bad. same thing happens to us but it usually happens when a septic tank is in a place you would never expect. What a pain, I feel for you. It's horrible breaking your equipment and still having to clear the blockage.

Since the 2001 has an electric brake when the power is removed the drum resists rotation. Thus it's hard to tell when there's no tension on the cable. I wanted no tension so I could try and pull by hand. Timing is everything though. After the cable snapped I knew the tension was relieved. I was fortunate to be able to pull the cable out by hand. I thought I was going to have to use a come along or such to try and get it out.
      I heard that with the 2001 if you want to let the cable release the torque, you put the Forward/Neutral/Reverse switch into Neutral and step on the foot switch and let the drum free spin till all the torque has released.

        Ron, now THAT is something I ought to have known. (Leave it to me to not read the destructions.)

        I'm thinking we should set a date for the pizza or it's never going to happen. I hope you have a place in mind as I'm clueless about pizza joints down in Chicago. (Other than Uno of course)

          It all depends on what type of pizza you are looking for. The best stuffed crust is Gino's over on Rush Street. If you like a yeast crust Riconemie's on 26th Street then.

Operator error or something that's going to happen sooner or later ?
              man we are going back to 1998 when that happend I was only 1 week out of the 2 week training that I got from RR and sent on my way to rod sewers and that happend I dont remember the cable torquen that much and yes defenitly opp. error . that was also the last cable I ever broke never snaped 1 again now I have customers ask what I am doing as when I rod I close my eyes and listen so I pay att. to cable rod by feel of cable thats with the K-7500 the K-60 is a hole new ball of wax to me
