  • 1.25 eel cable

    I just received some 1.25" electric eel cable with .5" inner core. that stuff sure is flexible. I think my 5/8 open wind is stiffer.

    I know my 11/16 non innercore is stiffer. Well we will see how it works with a drill. I have to wait for my backordered 4' piece.

    I thought that stuff would be stiff enough to span a ten foot opening and walk across.

    You went HD, the 7/16" innercore would have been fine.


    Trust me, you wouldn't want it any stiffer.

        the 4 footer came in and I ordered up another 40' of cable, I'll need at least 120' to do any serious drain cleaning around here with this set up. but I'll have plenty of drains in the 70' and less to see how I like working with the drill.

              Do you guys actually yous the drill or is it just a wind up,
              If its not a wind up is it better than the machine,what kind of drill and how do you join on the cable ?
              I know it's not as bulky and all that but holy cow,I'd love to see someone use it lol,
              Wouldn't it be hard on the drill: and arms,confusedold:

                Been using my dewalt timberwolf for a good 5 plus years. The drill is rated for a 4 5/8" self feeding drill. So no it doesn't really strain the drill. Not too hard on the arms with a side handle and leather gloves.

                But it takes a level of concentration and respect so you don't end up in the er or morgue

                Not for the weak of heart or hand.

                  well I used this set up on a few pretty good root blockages.

                  Lets just say," that dog can hunt"

                      773-728-2400 Ask for Kirk. He'll know. May ship to you but remember international shipping.

                      I had all the numbers here at one time but the forum changed and they will likely be impossible to find.

                      Use at your own risk.

                        Thanks Bob are these things homemade,I've got the dewalt timber wolf with the clutch set up,I really don't do a lot of big drains anymore,maybe try it out on a small distance job,like my own house to clean out the old building trap in my backyard every six months or so.
                        Do ya think that would do the job ok.as I don't feel like ripping up my brick patio and digging seven feet down,there is know outside clean out,inside only,100yr old house.
                        Cheers again Bob

                          It is done with a few Electric Eel parts manufactured by them. I believe shaft out of the Model C and a coupling. This will fit in your drill chuck. I have it and it works well in many situations. Can't remember the part numbers though. Kirk will know.

                          I think some have made adapters, but this way is better in my opinion. And NO manufacture of any of these parts/cables approve clearing drains this way. So, again the disclaimer, use at your own risk.
