Nice cane. I would like to make one for a friend and this will give me ideas and motivation.

Hi Druid, thanks for the kind comment. I use mainly brass or steel tips [ferrules] I get from the U.K. from the 'Stickman' then I supply a ‘quality’ rubber cane tip over the top of the ferrule, from a local Medical Supplies Store. These tips are getting very hard to find now days. On this cane I have yet to install a tip on this cane, so the cane can be cut down to length for a customer’s needs.

Here is a link to Keith Pickering [The Stickman] and his cane tips.

Note – [don’t use those ‘plastic’ chair leg tips, they wear out quickly but worse is they become very hard and slippery when they get cold!]

Very nicely done.

Only the people that have lived in the in the central NA arctic conditions understand the COLD and what it does to materials of all kinds.

That is so true, just try to lay out a cheap electric extension cord to your car block heater in -30c weather.

Thanks for that link. I can see that I’ll be spending a bit of time going over all of his information, and now I know where the Nanny McPhee Stick came from. Great site. Thank you. ;)
