    Default Good quality Drag Chain in Aus?

    The drag Chain that came with my X6-1500GT Router is a bit lame and am looking at fitting a more robust chain as well as larger size.
    Orignal size is 18 x 25. I have not had any luck finding a significant size bigger, only hugely bigger.
    I did see 15 x 30 but a quick calc showed they had the same cross sectional area.
    I have run limit switch cables and I want to run a Spindle lamp cable so its getting pretty tight.

    1. Anybody have a source for Drag Chain in Aus, as well as spare end pieces?

    2. Are there different versions of Drag Chain? ie they open on differnet sides? The ones I have only bend in one direction.

    It would seem it's not easy finding the larger one's here in Aus.....i struggled, however the ones i ended up using will be too big for your application. Hope you find something, i will keep a look out for you

    If you can't work out how to open them Youtube is your friend
    You need a small screwdriver

    My original drag chain was 18 x 25mm which has a CSA of 450 mm2. I found some with that link 25 x 38 mm. That has a CSA of 666mm2 so that should do the job.
