38036Suggestions for home-built tiller extension and universal joint?
- Aug 3, 2004I would like to add an extension to my wooden tiller and I am
wondering what other people have used for a connection. I have seen
some expensive carbon-fiber rods and universal joints, but I would
prefer to do something cheap.
My first attempt was to just drill a hole through the tiller and
another "stick" then run a rope through both and put stopper knots on
both sides. That is cheap and easy and gives plenty of flex. It is
fine for tacking when the joint is at a sharp angle, but it seems a
little too loose when the tiller is pointed more or less forward.
Any suggestions for a "better" solution?
