Stick Anchor on the cheap

Stick Anchor on the cheap

I'm in for $15.00 bucks. 10ft. 3/4" fiberglass rod, one 1" copper tee, one 2 1/2" x 1/4" SS bolt & a bit of mixed epoxy

I cut off about 6" of the 3/4 Fiberglass pole for a handle, tapped it at 3" center, Tapped the end of the 3/4 x 8ft. Fiberglass rod.

Took the 1" copper tee, filled it with epoxy centered the 6" handle, screwed in the 2 1/2" x 1/4" SS bolt ( cut off bolt head ), screwed the 3/4 fiberglass rod on the 1/4 SS bolt bedding it into the epoxy mixture. I smoothed out the edges of the fiberglass rod & handle sticking out of the copper Tee. I wrapper the copper Tee & fiberglass with shrinkwrap film and allowed this to cure for 48 hours. It required a bit of cleaning up but is very soild.

It ain't a pretty as Richard Grimes makes but it will stick Mud and hold. Picture to follow
