    Hate to be an asshole here, but do you have a partner? Or is 20 years a gross exaggeration?

    Never heard it called a "Sewer Machinist" before. After 20 years saying you went to school to remove material with a cutter just doesn't sound like a Sewer Cleaner.

    Again hate to be an asshole but your first post in this thread was in 2010 when you said you had cleaned 4 drains and was just starting. I have been doing this since 2009 and am fairly good at it, but I'm not near as good as the sewer Gods I work with who really do have 20 years of experience. Your work experience as a machinist doesn't constitute as drain experience any more than my three years of HVAC experience does.

    Your hvac experience can help u as a drain cleaner you have to figure it out urself. I myself have hvac experience an have used this knowledge to put a system under pressure to check it. You really need to have more confidence in your self

    Machining*is any of various processes in which a piece of raw material is cut into a desired final shape.
    My Desired shape is a hole.
    Material being removed wood.

    Sorry for the slow response it just my Business is busy
    As you clearly have lots of free time.

    An no problem on you being an ass hole ass holes are kinda my Business. Lol
