    Hi guys. Basically I bought a pole second hand yesterday with a gooseneck on it I don't really like the gooseneck part on it.

    So how easy is it to chop the end of the pole of and the modify it to a plastic angle adapter I will need a screw on pole end section too do I bond this on?

    Sorry if I haven't described things properly

    You shouldn't need to chop mate I'm sure they are interchangeable

    How is the goose neck attached? Do you really need to cut it off?

    The goose neck is attached to a metal collar. The gooseneck itself has a thread on it and screws into the collar

    So will the angle adapter not go onto the collar?

    You should be able to pull out the metal collar (try heating it up with boiling water or something) and the replace with a collar for plastic angle adapter.

    What make of pole is it?

    Mark loves the plumber merchants, I wouldn't have a clue if I walked in one of them.
