    I do some gold prospecting out in the wilds of Alaska and I don't have the resources to buy a huge drill rig for prospecting. I found your site after months on the web. What I need to know is can I connect enough of these rods together to maybe drill down to about 4 to 8 feet to take soil samples? I was thinking maybe I could get a machine shop to thread the end to accept a small bit. What do you think?

    While I cannot guarantee the strength of the rods for this purpose, I do not anticipate an issue. You would definitely need to have a custom adapter made to fit the end of the rods and hold a bit.

    How long can these rods be connected/extended, and how many are required, to break down a misaligned round chimney clay liner that has a 6" ID and maybe an 8" OD? Misalignment occurs at multiple sections about 10-15 feet down from the top of the chimney. What type of 1/2" drill would you recommend to do the job if this rod extension is applicable?
    By eFireplaceStore on October 22, 2014

    These rods can be extended to up to 40 feet in overall length from a top down application. Any drill with a 1/2 inch chuck and 10 amp or greater current rating will be sufficient to work. A tile breaker like the ProKleen Small Tile Breaker with TLC Connector would work well.
