I wanted to get a couple batteries for my 18v Ridgid stuff (fan, radio, drills, drivers, circ saw, recipe saw) and for $50 more than I was going to spend I upgraded a couple of my collection and I got this Brushless set:

Already used the compact drill, very nice.

Nothing special but I decided I need a 48" adjustable t-square. I've always just made do without one but decided I couldn't live without it any longer!

My weekend started off with a lot of crap. Literally.

 

The toilet on the first floor of my house was erupting like Mount Vesuvius every time we drained water upstairs - bath, dishes, toilet, didn't matter.  So, I figured I there was a clog somewhere between the house and the septic.

Out came the trusty Ridgid snake.  Well, 20m later, nothing was happening and it broke - wouldn't retract into the housing anymore.  Oh well - sounds like an excuse to get that Ryobi 18v snake I've been eyeballing for a while. Perfect!

I get home from the Depot, eager to try out my new toy.  Well, the Ryobi has a 25' auger cable.  It went all the way in and did nothing at all.  So, after a few more tries, I remembered there was a beast drain auger at the depot on clearance.  I got up early and, after a quick drive down the road, this beauty came home with me for the bargain price of $250 - half off!

Meet my new Ridgid K-400.  75' of 3/8", solid core goodness ready to tackle anything that I could throw at it.  Sure enough, about four hours later, this beast finally broke through what was probably 15' of clogged gunk and grease (gotta have a chat with the nanny on what is ok and what is NOT ok to flush) and the drains started working again.  Now I just have to deal with the HomeOwners insurance to get them to rebuild my bathroom, but that's another story.

 

Anyway, when all was said and done, not only can we flush, I've got not one but TWO new drain augers for any future clogs that show their ugly faces!

 

 

 

That's beautiful, I love a happy ending.. and $250 would only buy a replacement snake cable for the rig I use at work. Which is why we're constantly being reminded to NOT KINK IT! Except it happens sometimes..... LOL

I can't imagine what that must be like to run that cable.  I was sore as hell from wrestling with the machine that I had for 4 hours running it in and out hunched over a hole in the floor.  I'm going to guess that doesn't go around corners so well :D

Haven't I heard something about a high pressure jet system that pro's use to unclog a drain? Something about blasting with high pressured hot water or the use of some kind of declogging agent? Not sure which ones works better. But even though I don't have a full clog, I know my toilet line isn't doing so hot, I'd like it if somehow I can bleeping clear it out.

 

A few times I have sent boiling hot water down the light in hopes of breaking up any turd clogs going on, I haven't been that successful.

The jetter system is much more expensive for the customer and a much more involved system, hence the popular use of the auger. 

Be careful with hot water, you can melt the wax ring under the toilet that seals it

Regarding Dewalt black oxide bits for 59

 

WTF, they want 59 bucks for just a bit set with a black oxide finish, no titanium, no speed tip? Hmm, if I was buying non titanium drill bits, I wouldn't pay more then 20 to 30 dollars for a set. Just saying. You want some quality bits, you gotta buy what Jimbo and I got, industrial titanium, with black oxide finish and turbo max quick speed tips.

Not sure about the turbo max I bought but the cobalt I got are actually HSS.
