Help needed to fix cane bank stick.

Post by Snape » Thu Oct 25, 2018 12:15 pm

Many years ago I purchased a pair of cane bank sticks from the late Dave Austin. They are amongst my favourite items of tackle but when I returned home from a recent trip I found the hard wood spike was missing from one of them and I can only presume it got left in the ground.

Would anyone know how I could get a new hard wood spike made?

Nige, if Wal can't help drop me a pm and I'll turn you a new one in finest English oak and pop it in the post.

Last time I was on the trent I had the same problem and left one behind rather unintentionally

Exact same thing happened to one of my DA bank sticks.... made a new one in the drill

A practical man..I like that, I've sheathed mine in brass screwed and glued on, hated the thought of ramming the wood into the bank. :eyebrow:

You can buy hard wood dowel from Wickes. then you sand a point on one end, stain it and glue it inside the brass tube.
That is how Dave did his and that is how I do mine. Use a two part epoxy glue.
