      Re: timberwolf superhawg , for drain cleaning?

      are you serious?

      i'm not the only one using a drill/ timberwolf for running 1.25'' cables.

      i have no videos, but plenty of photos using a timberwolf.

      there are plenty of threads on this subject too.

      it's no different than the eel video, except that the drill motor powers the cable the same way as the eel or the general does.

      i use 10' sections of 1.25'' cable and when it gets difficult or too far from the opening, i'll swap out the cable to a 4' section and develop more torque and less slop outside the opening.

      remember the timberwolf in low gear will drill a 4 5/8'' hole on solid wood and turn it into shavings. it's got more than enough torque to twist the cable to a pretzel.

      it's only dangerous when you don't respect the tool or cable and you're still learning the feel of it.

      now i need to go dig up some threads and photos of the thousands i've already posted.

          Nothing to be serious about just curious, so from what i gather you open the chuck put the female end in tighten stick down drain til you hit obstruction and let the drill do the work.... Besides not having the tool or right tool the advantage is? Just curious not putting anything or anyone down.. what it is the advantage to this tactic? Thanks rick curiousity killed the cat?

                  I don't use the DW124, but have been thinking of upgrading to it or the super holehawg. For now I use the Milwaukee Hole Shooter 1/2" drill.

                      Haven't run my Drill and Eel setup inside a "finished" home yet. I use mine for the roof jobs and the rare basement jobs. I read that you where thinking of doing a set up with 5/8" cable. Do you ever do that? I've been thinking of doing that also. Electric Eel makes a 5/8" dual cable that is mini version of there 1.25". I run it in my Model N, it will self feed just like your General cable. You might want to check it out.

                      Also I read you made a comment on 7/8" cable with the Drill. I do this all the time with my Electric Eel 7/8" J-Cable. I have not had a problem with it over torquing, flipping over, etc. I use it for 2"-4" pipes. I use it only on soft stoppages in 4". It's a killer setup for 2" roof vents. Works just as well as the 1.25" cable, it's just not as powerful. You should diffidently check it out.

                          Will, I used to run the 7/8 J cable with the drill in Boston all the time no problem. Lots of times it was in old 2 Inch roof drains on 3 family homes with flat roofs or down 2 inch vent lines It did pretty well.

                            I use the Dewalt 460 (DWD 460) as my drill to do this as it has "Bind-up-control" .

                            Here is a link to the drill I use: DWD460 1/2" (13mm) VSR Stud & Joist Drill with Clutch and Bind-Up Control® | DEWALT Tools

                            I have found this drill to be a lifesaver in high torque situations because the drill will not bind and kick you and is as tuff or tuffer then my Milwaukee.

                            If you have the choice let technology make the job safer for you...
