What have you made.


Recommended Posts

Wanted to get my boy (13) out to work with me but didnt want to pay for a CLX10, so found one of these in my garage with no gooseneck and a broken top section.

So ive ditched to section, drilled through the black bung at the base, made a tubless length of pipe and popped a rectus male on it, and installed a univalve.

The poles ideal for him as it weighs next to nothing. Ill even use it myself on my round as i have 1 day which is entirely bungalows.

Ill post pic of the finished article once ive got gooseneck.

 

Thanks to @Green Pro Clean Ltd for the youtube video of you making one out of a harris pole, which gave me the idea.

 

What have you guys made from scratch rather than spend good money on?

Post your pics.
