It appears to be HD polypro material. I did not see that as a drawback. Won't rust.

Answer: 
Thanks for contacting RIDGID. The drum and handle are both hardened plastic, but the tube that the cable comes out of is metal. I am not exactly sure what housing you are referring to so if you need more information please call us at 888-743-4333 so we can discuss.

NO, not when the plastic connector between the cable and the crank breaks and it will after you use it a couple of times.

Answer: 
Yes, you pretty much just push it back in. It's not permanently attached but simply holds on by using the friction of the wound up cable in the drum. When you push it in, it will start to wind into the drum. I had no problem getting it back in.

Answer: 
Yes; can be used in 1/2" pipe, typical of sinks. However, at a minimum you have to remove the 'hair catcher' (screen or "X" bars); will work best (if the block is lower down) by detaching the trap (the 'funny' bend under the sink) and snaking into main line. Would not be best for removing hair 'globs' in upper pipe-- use the stick type probe product for that or a chemical.

Try something smaller. The coil on the end of this may not pass the drain grate, or be too large for the workings of your sink stopper.

RIDGID PowerSpin is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, but pay attention After destroying two other augers like this, this one was definitely best. It is priced highest, too, but I am OK with that after mission accomplished. But, it is a 1/4" auger, and yes it will kink if you let it twist. It will not beat a $300 pro snake setup. If you are not cautious about feeding the coil, it will twist just as well as any 1/4" auger. The main difference is the feed mechanism, that makes it worth the price. Other augers, you have to pause, pull out more coil, then lock somehow and keep going. This one uses a clever constant feed setup that works very well. Got the hair clog out, got back in good graces with the wife, two thumbs up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It got the job done! Using the handle to turn is not really an option, so attaching a power drill to it is a necessity. Worked great and cleared the clog. It was a little difficult to re-wind it as you have to squeeze the handle fairly tightly while it winds back in, but it got the job done.

My Wife skinned potatoes in the sink against my constant warnings that it will clog the drain, sure enough when emptying the pot of water the potatoes were boiling in, the drain was clogged... After a quick google search of what rental costs are ($28) and seeing this at $35, it was a no brainer to buy seeing how wifes are known not to always listen to their husbands... 10min after getting home with the snake the drain was clog free and back together.

I always use a drill hooked up to it. If you have never ran a snake it can be hard to tell if it is going forward or not. It would be nice to have some sort of marking on the cable to help determine that or how far in the pipe you are. Note, it is always messy no matter how you do it so keep some paper towels nearby.

The first time, probably being a little to aggressive with the drill, the plastic frame cracked where the drill connects and it was rendered useless. The second purchase also broke, but I was able to use it 4 or 5 times successfully before it broke. After my first experience, I'm very careful with the drill only operating it at very slow speeds. Unfortunately, like many others have described, the inner cable is secured by a single screw and a fragile piece of plastic which will eventually break. The cable would no longer retract and I had to pull it out by hand. I'm giving this a three star review because it did successfully clear up multiple clogs before it broke, but I think the product would be vastly better if the (a) the cable was secured betting to the house and (b) the last couple of feet of cable were painted a different color, or there was some indication that you were coming to the end of the line (literally and figuaritively)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK OR ANYTHING FROM RIGID DOESN'T WORK, DOESN'T RETRACT THE CABLES. WENT TO HOMEDEPOT TO RETURN BUT THEY WOULDN'T TAKE IT, THEY SAID IT'S USED AND WILL NOT ACCEPT IT. KEEP SAYING YOU HAVE TO CONTACT RIGID. THEY MAKE IT SOUND LIKE THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT AT ALL EVEN IT WAS PURCHASED FROM HOME DEPOT. THEY DON'T TRY TO HELP YOU AT ALL!!!!!!!! CONTACTED RIGID. THEY ASKED YOU TO FILL A FORM AND HAVE SEND IT TO THEM FOR EVALUATION AND YOU HAVE TO PAY THE SHIPPING YOURSELF. RIDICULOUS! ALREADY WASTED $40 BUYING AND RIGID IS ASKING YOU TO WASTE MORE MONEY TO SHIP IT. WHAT IF THEY COME BACK AND SAY THEIR PRODUCT IS FINE AND DENY THE REFUND? I FOUND HOME DEPOT NOT BEING HELPFUL AT ALL HOMEDEPOT DEFINITELY NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT SINCE THEY ARE THE ONE SELLING IT. THEY NEED TO DEVELOP A WAY TO HELP CUSTOMER RETURN ANYTHING THAT WAS BOUGHT FROM THEIR STORES.AND RIGID ONLY WANTS YOUR MONEY BUT WHEN YOU WANT A RETURN. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. DON'T BUY IT OR ANYTHING FROM RIGID.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Love it! Drain openers wouldn't work, tried my very OLD hand auger and couldn't get past the tight bend in the laundry room and the shower, Bought the power spin and followed the instructions, Used it with my drill and It worked GREAT. It would have rec'd 5 stars, but the only fault I could find is with the removable hand crank ( Remove to attach drill) If I tried to use it as a hand crank system the hand crank comes disconnected too easily. The Auto feed is the cat's meow (That's why I bought this one over the other model that goes on a drill) It made it SOOO EASY

Bought it today and used it this evening, so I can't comment on its durability and give it five stars. But it worked very well. I had a hand-crank 20' auger that did not work, so I bought this. I unscrewed the p-trap under our bathroom sink, attached a drill, and was able to feed it in. Took some effort, and sometimes I could not tell if it was actually feeding into the pipe, but it did poke through the stoppage. I considered another brand for $10 less but a Home Depot guy said this one has an auto-feed. That turned out to be very convenient and worth the extra bucks.
