    Default HOW TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF METAL POLES ON A BLOWAWAY COLD FRAME

    HOW TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF METAL POLES ON A BLOWAWAY COLD FRAME,
    part of mine has rotted away at some joints,like where two join up,one sliding into the other,last year i put a short lenght of strong cane in and taped it up,but it still no good,this afternoon,DH cut up some larger tubing and slid it snugly over some joints,whilst others had a newer pole cut to fit{we had spare poles from a cheap gazebo doing nothing that were the same diameter}i then taped every joint,even the whelded corners with gafer tape,so it a solid fram again,now fitted with a spare cover,
    pic 1 is the frame,pic 1,2 show the shiny new tubing thats sliped over,and then taped up,
