  • my newest, oldest drain machine

    just another piece of unique drain cleaning equipment for my museum.

    made by the miller sewer rod company. i believe around 1958.

    it's 50' of 5/16'' cable in the drum and in good condition. the egg beater style power spin works good.

    heck, it might become my rooftop cordless sink machine move over k-60, there's a new snake in town

    rick.



    looks like a mean grean machine.



    50' of cleaning power

    You really do need to keep some of this stuff around as museum pieces.

        There is the exact same "rodder" for sale here on Craigslist Chicago for $75.00.
        If I had the space for it I would buy it.

          There should be plenty around Chicago as that is where miller rod company is from.

                    My mean green machine is not leaving my shop.

                    It's going right next to my spider and American power k1500's.

                    A well made vintage machine.

                        I was going to Bid on that because it looked like the one Ron has in his hands in a few of his pictures. But then I thought I just don't have the space. Go use it on something rick!

                          I never see stuff like that here in the north east. Once in a while I come across an old spartan model, like a 600 or 1000, but never anything cool like that. I'd like to start a vintage collection as well.
