Weezer, here is a picture did this to all 4, but remember to cut the inside bottom if you do it the top has a plug in it you will see when you get them.

The new ones are made with heavier wall inside tubing and don't have the plugs in them.

I handed my wife one of the new poles and some sand paper.....

she said "I don't think so, Tim".....

She knows my name is not Tim....

(the pole did not get much shining done on it yesterday)

Major Problem

Just got an email from Joe stating he only got 1 telescoping pole assy and nothing else. As I have nothing left in the shop, I must have shipped 4 complete sets of attaching hardware and 3 pole assemblies to someone. If you received more than 2 sets of poles, (2) 5/16" ss bolts & locknuts, 2 upper attaching brackets, (2) 1/4" hitch pins, 2 lower stow brackets and 1 set of instructions with (4) 3/16" pop rivets, PLEASE pm me so I can make arrangements to have them shipped to Joe. Thanks and sorry for the screwup! Now you know why this was the last batch.

The new ones have a weep hole in the pad. The plugs won't keep the water out as there are numerous other holes in the upper poles.

Not when they are stowed in place attached and in use yes you are right, but I drilled my own, for when they are not being used. Your are awful touchie today. I 'm not the one who shipped 3 instead of 4, I warned you about your CRS disease....... You better get that Surface so it's not that much weight for you to carry around, or get Frankie to do it for you......

One more for o'l times sake....
Hopefully the missing stuff will show up, otherwise Joe will get a full refund and I will make him a set of attaching brackets and he can get telescoping paint poles from Lowes/HD.

Not the same, but the best I can do as I have no more pole material.

OC, he sent that as a "reply all" so I got it as well.

I did a return "reply all" stating that YEP, if we get a spare pole we'll let both of ya know.
