I need a good poker

PostBy: Beanbuzz On: Mon Nov 19, 2012 8:29 pm

Looking for a poker that will reach the rear of my Hitzer 503. I know, just make one ! Problem is I can be pretty dangerous when the wrong tool is put in my hands. Would like to find one online.

Go to Tractor Supply or simular. Buy one of them screw in the ground auger type anchors. Cut the auger off. Now you have a 5/8 rod, with eyelet on one end. Heat the opposit end with torch, and hammer flat. Makes for a GREAT coal poker, for little money.

Wait a minute, I thought this post was about something totally different. :clap: toothy What the hell is wrong with me???????????????? Orrrrr, you could just hit a bunch of yard sales (kinda late in the season) or go through an old barn or two--except for the long one--that one I made. ;) All those tiles are 2"X2"

I've made several over the years, mostly for wood stove, but for coal too. I use 3/8" round rod as it is lighter than 1/2" yet does the job well. Here's a sketch of how I usually make them. If I knew the style & dimensions that you need I'd be glad to ship one up. I'll bet I could have one in your hands for less than $17.50. Your choice of any color so long as it's black.

Plan B would be great!. Anywhere around 36in. give or take would be fine. The color choices are kind of overwhelming, but I have decided on black. Just let me know where to send payment. Thankyou and all others who have responded.
