    Default Swag/tent poles

    Folks, the little darlings were having a set to last camping trip and one landed on her swag. Support poles snapped at the join and I am having trouble finding something to replace the insert which serves to connect one section of the pole to the next. The diameter of the silver insert looks to be 7mm. Any ideas where to get something to fit or what to get to fit? Was going to buy a spare but they cost over $65.

    or tent world has some sales that perhaps you could use a segment and have a few spares

    You could try ANSCO in Melbourne for a single pole segment

    A short piece of wooden dowel. You could buy a length of 8mm dowel and place it in a drill chuck and spin it while carefully holding sandpaper on it till you get it to the required size.
    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
