|The cheapTele-Pole was no use to me...|
Not being one to give up completely, I had to find another use for it. Discussions on the MaggotDrowning.com forum, sowed the seed of an idea to use it as a cupping pole. Okay it is not overly long and will only be useful for very close in work, but it has to be worth a try. After all I can't think of anything else to use it for.
The top section of the 'pole' is much too flexible to carry a large cup so that was dispensed with, making it even shorter, now nearer four meters long rather than five. The end of the No.2 section is much too thick to accept standard cups and although I could make my own from plastic containers and aerosol caps there is a limit to how far I really want to go down the Blue Peter route; a million and one things to do with a washing-up bottle...

|The top section was removed and replaced with the paint brush|
|A cup fits snugly onto the tip of the paint brush|
