Appearing broom fix

Postby Umpa Duze » October 26th, 2009, 2:36 am

Hi All,
I have been performing the appearing broom effect. Between practice and performance I have probably used the broom forty times. Recently I noticed that the end of the broom handle is developing a number of splits. I was told that appearing poles have the same problem. Has anyone found a good solution to this? I plan on cutting away the split portion and folding a piece of electrical tape over the end, but it seems like such a make- shift solution I was hoping that someone might know of a better way.

Thanks,
Umpa

Do what the professionals do. Cut awat the split ends and fold a piece of electrical tape over the end.
