Lack of straight extensions.

Recommended Posts

I found a source of aluminum tube that is close enough in dimensions that I am making my own extensions. I need to use the ends/wiring from an existing extension to complete them, but it is very straight forward:


1. Cut tube to desired length (1 inch O.D. with 1/8 inch wall thickness is what I think I bought, the stock ends fit snuggly enough not to wiggle at all).

2. Remove ends from existing extension (preferably an extension as long or longer than the length you need so you don't have to extend the wiring between the ends).

3. Make templates for holes from existing extension.

4. Use templates to mark holes on new extension.

5. Drill out holes on new extension.

6. Install ends.
