Pick up a cheap bull float base and adapter, or scrounge one off an old float, then just bolt it right to the broom.Well picked up a chain model. Sweet:thumbup: Now the dam 48" broom threads stripped. Out came the tuck tape. The stuff fixes everything. I'll ponder how to fix the stripped wooden threads on the broom. I'm not a fan of throwing stuff away. I get stubborn on trying all ways to fix things. Before I pitch. My brother would just get pissed and throw it away and buy another.
