It's the same idea as the old RR Viking or "VK" switch from 3/8 to 1/4 inch cables and drums. Body is different but idea is the same. The Gorlitz 380/250 would be my pick when my Viking drops dead. If you do a lot of sinks a Super Vee will come in handy for different drain set ups.Now I am thinking of maybe getting a gorlitz 380/250. Anybody used one of these.
I have used gorlitz cables without any problems, I would say go for it.how are the gorlitz cables. I am getting ready to buy one and have been talking to the sales rep. He said a general wire cable would not even work in a golitz because it is too stiff. General wire is all I have used before, but I don't like them.
Service Spring, now Drain Cables Direct, are great guys. About 15 years ago maybe a little more, I talked them into making all their cable out of music wire. For those of you that do not know, most cables that spartan, Ridged, general and others make are oil tempered wire. What this means it is more susceptible to getting ruined when you stick it in a line full of acid. Where as music wire, is drawn and tempered differently, the metal is a whole lot less porous, which makes the cable acid resistant.Whatever machine calls for if in doubt call gorlitz ask and get a catalog most eccept mini use left hand as for hollow or inner core thats up to your experience I use hollow and replace after more than 2 splices but NO ONE but me operates my equip now days and I buy cables fom draincablesdirect they used to be called service spring IMHO they make as good of cables as anyone to fit all type machines and they have great color catalog too
