    The metal insert at the end of my carbon fibre pole which the angle adaptor screws is loose and spins, so that the brush head swivels about. I've tried duct tape and a few options but nothing lasts long and I'm sick of constantly adjusting it. Can anyone recommend a good glue for metal to carbon fibre that will keep it stuck fast?

    You get your specialised adhesives for CF which would cost you £20 plus or you could go to your local toolstation / screwfix and get a standard two part epoxy adhesive from £2 upwards.

    I'd be tempted to rivet or bolt the attachment. If there is room making sure there is still sufficient strength after doing so.
