38048Re: Suggestions for home-built tiller extension and universal joint?
- Aug 3, 2004-For the extension use an appropriate length of wood the same cross
section as your tiller end. For U joint use an appropriate size
flexible tubing held in place with a number of turns of small stuff or
hose clamps. You will want to tape the hose clamps, those ends cut.
You will also want to inspect it often.
