Ferrule (Joining) Carbon Tubing
Sized to couple together two longer tubes ◾ Smooth, matte finish ◾ Chamfered ends
Easily join lengths of similarly dimensioned tubes. Quite possibly the simplest method for fabricating an extendable pole set. Used across the globe, our ferrule tubing is available in various lengths designed to be used primarily for joining longer lengths of carbon tubing together. Each ferrule (or joining tube) is sanded to an outer diameter 0.010" under the nominal size to allow for a bond line (bond gap) of ~0.005". All ferrules are provided with chamfered edges to allow for easy sliding in and out of the joining tubing.
Although we offer the majority of our ferrules in lengths around 12 inches, it is generally a good idea to maintain a bonded single side depth of at least 2d or 2 times the inner diameter of the tubes you are joining. We provide most ferrules longer than is recommended but can trim them shorter upon request if needed.
