    from Clinton, NJ asked:
    October 22, 2014
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    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?
    1 Answer
    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.
