Wink crutch shaft for metal detector

Guys I know it has been done but no one has post step by step or clear photos or instructions




pole from a electric broom


lower plastic shaft from whites



I used the brrom because I need a sleeve that has a 3/4 diameter the shaft is a 7/8 diameter just like the stock diameters of most of the shafts



fully insert the 3/4 shaft inside the crutch


cut and leave 1 1/2 inch out



this is how it looks almost finish



I ordered a Plugger's Replacement Shaft Locks To Fit Minelab Whites Tesoro Teknetics Shafts from ebay its a 7/8 to 3/4 adapter the seller is really helpful & quick answers your questions



adapter arrived today its simply awesome!



Ill post some pics of the final product with the adapter but you get the idea
