    Re: rick reverse auger saves thanksgiving

    pretty much with an open hook heated and bent out.

    the key is that you have to run the motor in reverse to spin the cable counterclockwise. this will act as a corkscrew and thread it's way into the obstruction.

    a word of caution. when running in reverse/ counterclockwise, the cable will want to auto feed into the drain. can be useful, can be dangerous.

    the great thing though is that the sectional clutch will stop the cable instantly and prevent a knot

    unlike a drum where you might have a 100-200# flywheel of cable wanting to spin. especially with only a few feet of cable in the drain

      Good job.
      K50 is an awesome little machine.

      Are you using the oil drain pan to hold your cable vs the hose?

      i would have tried to sell stainless supply lines, don't care much for the rubber stuff.
      might even have tried to replace the boiler drains with ball valves-if the unit had an individual shut off.

              "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

                            LOL - I too lost focus of the origin thread after seeing photos of the laundry room and hearing the price of the condo.

                            So what's the plumber's milkshake?
