Posted:Mine are cables too and are kinked. I don't think there is a lot you can do. I haven't used them for quite a while, but am really tempted to cut the cables and replace them with chain.

I don't know how your wicks look, but mine are screwed on. I have thought about cutting the cable, bending it around on itself and crimping the wire together again. See the pic below for an example of what I mean. The chains could then attach to the cable loop, giving me more freedom to shorten the chains for buzzsaws etc.

Posted:Well cable is really really cheap at the hardware store so it's not a big deal to replace it.

Posted:As far as I can tell there is no reversing the kinking problem, you can try and use two sets of pliers and bend it back into place. You'll find though that after awhile the cableing will start to come unwraped or break. I think cable is just one of those things that gets replaced after awhile. There are tons of old threads, discussing the pros and cons of chain, ball chain, and cable. If your going to have to replace your cableing you might want to research those threads. Also find out whitch is most avalable in your area. Good luck.

Nothing good ever comes from hanging out with normal people.
