My main question is in the last paragraph.
Recently bought these ski poles as an addition for greater exercise
and for handling rough terrain on my 100mm wheel skates.
I was really impressed after putting a lot of weight on that and
seeing the bottom aluminum section bend way out of shape without
buckling or remaining even slightly bent.
I want to add springs, so I guessed and bought this stainless steel
spring from Mcmaster.com.
9663K34 Type 302 SS Cont Length Compression Spring 20" Length, .750"
OD, .091" Wire Diameter
Thanks for that store advice. They shipped very quickly for a good
I have some ideas about how to secure the springs.
What, if anything, should I use to lubricate the telescoping
aluminum shafts? On hand, I have WD-40, silicon spray lubricant
(mainly for rubber/plastic), machine oil, and light grease. Wear
will probably occur at the opening of the larger section where the
smaller section enters.
