  • training in progress

    so since my rooftop job today was for a friend. i figured why not have him help

    actually it was his friend who helped while the owner was running water and checking drains inside.

    figured he can either watch and take photos

    or i can show him how to properly run a k-60 and maybe he'll enjoy it enough to get into the trade

    we can always use another clean cut, college educated drain man

    so first i showed him how the old pro does it

    then i made him show me what he learned.

    not bad with only minutes of coaching.

    anyone interested in hiring jason, give me a ring

    rick.



    the gloves look biger than him.



    nice form, didn't even drop a knee.



    part of the training is how to properly pose for a photo when running the k-60.



    jason, there's a reason i had you grab both the k-60 and reel.

    you done good

    not even a drop of sweet on a hot roof top.

    Nice

    Seriously though, I have wondered what my insurance company would say if a fell off a roof? *knocks wood* Do you think it could be an issue? I know it is easier but a toilet pull is always safer and easier on the back comparatively.

        Are those the gloves you use with the sectional cable? Every time I use those, my glove gets caught in the cable.
        Buy cheap, buy twice.

          they are. the only time it gets caught is when they start to shred between the thumb and forefinger. but usually they're oily and just slide right through my palms.

            I agree it is easier and cleaner ( I go rooftop whenever possible as well).

            I use the same supply house gloves as well with 6mil latex under


            We hear insurance nightmares all the time and they are just looking for a reason sometimes

              I have been reading your blogs and need some advise. I am looking to buy my first machine. I have an opportunity to expand into drain cleaning.

              I will be working primarily on residential rental houses. Need to be able to address issues in small lines as well as some 4" lines from the house. I believe the K-50 or K-60 is the right machine to go with. If I am operating with one machine can I accomplish most work with the K-60?

              I would appreciate any advise you can send my way.

              Thank you

                believe it or not, yes you can.

                the k-60 will run both the 7/8'' and 5/8'' sections of cable. the 5/8'' will navigate a 2'' trap found on newer showers and laundries. for the 1.5'' traps, you can use a drum adapter on the k-60 that was designed for the k-50 and run both 5/16'' and 3/8''. 5/16'' is preferred as the 3/8'' can be too stiff.

                i'll let bill/ plumberscrack answer the drum adapter as he has it and uses it.

                personally a k-39 and k-60 are the 1-2 combo for dam near 95% of everything you'll run into.

                bill, help the man out

                  Rick turned me on to the k-60.

                  Pound for pound it is the best machine money can buy!
