    Default Dreel/cable question

    So the last couple years of using the Dreel I have kinked two (OK four) 1 1/4 eight foot cables.

    I was thinking of using one for the lead cable on a second run down the main.
    Seems to me it would flop around and be a good finish cutting system.

    Here I seldom get a 4" clean out that will take a full size cutter for various reasons.
    The kinked cables look solid on the ends so I see no reason to think they will break.

    Tried to get the kink out but I don't think it possible.

    Dude you need to chill on the trigger, lol. In my learning process I kinked one and ran it for awhile. You just need to keep an eye on the highest point as it will eventually wear thin from continuous rubbing.

    Yeah it's pretty much impossible to get them straight again.

    I thought you was a wee bit crazy myself with the Dreel...
    Until I saw a friend using it...

    I'm not running it...
    The 2 machines is enough for me to carry...
    But it does work I'll give you that...

    On a side note you're still crazy and it has nothing to do with the dreel...
