Ferrules, collars etc.

When ordering ferrules it should be remembered that rubber ferrules will stretch and that metal ferrules should have the end of the stick tapered slightly, so always choose a ferrule slightly smaller than the diameter of your stick.


Rubber ferrules

 

Several sizes to fit most sticks. These are "bell" shaped with good grips on the base and a metal washer inside to stop the stick wearing through quickly.

Type quantity for each size in the box then click "Add to Cart" button.

Lacquered finish that gives them a grey/brown colour. This can be rubbed off with steel wool and metal polish to reveal bright brass.

Taper the end of the stick to get a tight fit and secure with epoxy or pins - or use the traditional way of crimping the rim two or three times with a sharp nail and hammer.

Diameter measured across open end in sixteenths-of-an-inch, so No 8 = half inch,
No 12 = three quarter inch etc,
The length of each ferrule is the same (approx one inch) regardless of diameter.

ALL SIZES ARE APPROXIMATE!

These are much cheaper but not as hard wearing. These have an antique-effect brown coating but can easily be polished to bright brass using steel wool and metal polish.

Taper the end of the stick to get a tight fit and secure with epoxy or pins - or use the traditional way of crimping the rim two or three times with a sharp nail and hammer.

Diameter measured in sixteenths-of-an-inch, so No 8 = half inch,

NOTE: The folding Ice Ferrule does NOT come with a rubber or other ferrule so if you don't already have one please order one for your own stick from the selection of ferrules above.

Ice Ferrule

Clamps on to "standard" sizes of sticks (20 to 30 mm thick) by fitting two screws (long and short ones supplied in each pack) through the metal parts. The stick is not damaged and the Ice Ferrule can be removed and stored during the summer.

When not in use the ice grips fold out of the way and the normal rubber or metal ferrule (not supplied) is used. When required the ice grips simply click into place below the normal ferrule. Brilliant! My own mother has been test driving one for several weeks and several of her friends now have them too!

Ice Ferrule £6.50

Qty

Engraving up to 30 characters costs only £10 (not including price of collar). The more characters you have, the smaller they need to be engraved to fit on the collar.

ENGRAVED COLLARS

If you would like any of the metal collars (below) engraved for just £10 then enter your lettering in the box and click on "Engrave". MAKE SURE YOU ALSO ORDER A COLLAR!!!

If ordering more than one collar but not all engraved, make sure you order the engraving here first then order the collar you want engraving - order any other collars AFTER the engraved one so we can tell from the order form which one is to be engraved. You might also like to put a note on the order form to make sure there is no confusion.

NB Engraving is done by hand-held tool.

Engraving required£10
Type name/date etc. that you require in the box. Max 30 characters (including spaces) please.
Please double check the lettering you have chosen - any spelling or punctuation mistakes cannot be rectified later!

NEW!

Solid silver disc, 25 mm (1 inch) in diameter and 0.7 mm thick, engraved with up to 18 characters (including spaces)
Useful if you have already made (or bought) a stick and fitting a collar is not an option.
The disc is drilled to take two silvered pins (included) that you can use to attach the disc to any stick - you may wish to put a dab of epoxy on the back to make it even more secure.

 

Price only £18.00 for the disc AND the engraving and the pins.


Engraving required
Type name/date etc. that you require in the box.
Max 18 characters please (including spaces).
Please double check the lettering you have
chosen - any spelling or punctuation mistakes
cannot be rectified later!

The discs are obtained from a local engraver (who does the engraving) so it can take anything up to a week after you place the order before I get it back. I press the disc into a shallow curved profile and drill two pin-holes for easier fitting on your own stick.

The engraver normally chooses suitable lettering depending on the size and context.

LIMITED NUMBERS LEFT. MANUFACTURE OF THESE HAS STOPPED AND NO MORE WILL BE MADE - WHEN THEY'RE GONE, THEY'RE GONE!

Two Walnut/Hazel sticks - see how the silver ring transforms the one on the left!

Nickel-plated spacer rings

Glue these between the handle and shank to make a very stylish and neat joint. The handle and shank should sit inside the outer ring and butt up against the internal flange for best fit. Suitable for threaded rod or wooden peg joints. The central hole is approximately 15 mm wide so you might need to file it out a little to use thicker pegs
