    Hi Guys,

    Long shot but thought I would ask. I have had the end part of the carbon fibre section ultra light on the end of my firbre glass pole snap off today. I have ordered a new pole section but it has to be glued so sent out tomorrow delivery wednesday so today and tomorrow wiped out for me.

    All I need is a pole insert for the carbon firbre section but I can not locate a shop that sells it in kent so i can buy today and glue in place ready for tomorrow. Only option are online...

    Does anyone know of any shops in kent that might sell these or know of a window cleaner wanting to sele a spare one?

    Thank you, just brought loads of spare parts onlien today, thought i had it all covered but no, gutting!

    Cheers for any response in advance. All the best.

    No, dont do ladders mate. I dont have the set up for them now.

    All i need is a dam insert to fi to the pole to angle part, no shop anywhere go one, only online. I have been buying in spares as I buildign but not had the money to buy everything, would cost too much, but the dam part I did not have goes :( grrrr!!!

    All ordered now but not arriving till wednesday, gutted two days work to move now and customers to inform. I brought in a load more spares too and buying my carbon firbre pole asap now.... Shame there are not many window cleaning shops on the street to go and buy from..... Outside to see if I can tape it all up and struggle through tomorrow but I no its not going to have it as will have to much friction when cleaning and will break again.

    Hows you going Dave anyway? WFP going well for you? Hope so:)

    Maybe get a cheap fibreglass back up pole for emergencies like this
    Can get a 25 foot bayersan for about 90 quid off ebay
    Heavy and bendy but better than not working
