The invention is an electrician's portable power driven wire puller with an integrated electric rewinding mechanism.
Inventor Jonathon A. Mayhall of Ingram, TX has created an electricians portable power driven wire puller with an integrated electric rewinding mechanism.
As anyone who performs a lot of physical work will attest, nothing beats having the proper tool for a job. The proper tool can save time and money, produce a higher quality job, reduce damage to equipment, and provide for the increased safety of the worker. Each field of physical work has its own type of specialty tools, each performing a specialized task. One task common to the electrical field is pulling wire or cable into conduits, wall cavities, ceiling cavities, and the like. Most often, an electrician will use a fish tape which is easily pushed through the conduit or opening due to its rigid nature. The wire or cable is then attached to the end of the fish tape and then it is pulled back, thus pulling the wires or cables into place. However, at the end of the process, the fish tape must be wound back up into its case. Long fish tapes can be over hundreds of feet long, which not only requires a considerable amount of time to rewind it, but also a lot of physical effort. Inventor Mayhall has created a means by which an electricians fish tape can be easily rewound to address these concerns.
This clever new invention pulls line through conduit more quickly. It is powered by a rechargeable battery. It is operated by a handle mounted electric switch and can be operated manually if needed. It is made in many different styles and lengths. The use of the Powered Fish Tape allows for the rewinding of a fish tape in a manner which is quick, easy, and effective.
