Re: Crack in the pole

Just remove the ends,  get a new tube from McMaster - Carr, and reinstall the ends on a new tube. It is not that difficult. 
Or you can weld a sleeve on cracked tube.

Hello,
I realized that one of my poles has a crack of about 5 cm or 2 inches. Anyone here with knowledge of metallurgy regarding advise if and how to fix it or better get a new alloy tube? Not sure how old the cracks are. See pics.
