  • 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"
