Nope, no sanding, nothing. You find the right stock and it fits nice and snug like its suppose to, just like a nice quality tent pole. Just need to make sure that everythings clean and burr free.

The right way to do it would be to have the fittings all machined up for a really nice fit. If I had a metal lathe i'd have gone that route. But instead I found a good industrial metal store and asked the guy at the counter. Told him what I wanted and what I was looking for and he made sure I got it.

Not a bad idea. If money isn't an issue you could go out and buy another pole. Shorten up both, the new one and the one you already have. In the end you will get the size/length you need. Even bigger because you'll have extra material. Plus the fact that you know it would all fit and work when your done.

Me, im just too damn cheap and if I can make it myself cheaper I will.

I was thinking that looks like a pool cleaning (telescopic) pole that has been cut into sections.

THat might be an idea!

Sorry, I've had someone ask before for a set. Just to get the material is 140 miles round trip. I use to work down that way and alway's found an excuse to grab a company vehical and run over there. That jobs gone, and finding time to run down there doesn't seem to happen much anymore. New job seems to alway's get in the way.

Their shortest is 18", but you can cut them to any length you want.
what a fun site, I may end up making a small fun tent for my son and this is perfect. The near .5" stuff looks pretty good choice for the poles. Not to spendy either.
Nice
Thanks!

presentation board holder?

So I was waling through the offices, and found a disgarded tripod sign holder.
steel pipe with shock cords, about 4" too long for whay I want but with a cutter then could work pretty good.
Going to take it home and hack the &^%* out of it and see what happens.....pics to follow!
The cool thing is they have this plastic hook that adjusts in heightto hold a sign board, could be useful for hanging a jacket from or misc crap.....again pics to follow.......

The cheapo scot at work!

So I made a set....

So I took the sign holder home, cut the tripod center mount off.
Then pulled the legs apart to get to the shock cord and cut one end.
Pulled the cord out and trimmed all the pipes to 18.5 inches the exact inside lip of the jesse's.
Fed the shock cord backthough duct taped to a bit o string to feed the last bit through. Clamped the end again and presto.
2 x 3 pipe pieces with shock cord and 2 seperate pipes that can be used to make one end really high or make the two sets 1 pole higher.
Took about 9 dremel cut off blades to finish it off I could not find my hack saw.
So pics......



length with no additional poles inserted


with one additional pole

details of the pole hook



and it all fits nicely in a tripod bag I have.


Next I have to try setting it up, I need a couple of rubber ends so it won't damage the tarp and I may go with a rubber insert that I can put a bolt through so I can use the grommet holes on the tarp too.
