So I finally got around to building my own Jin-Pole. ( I’ve seen it spelt about 100 different ways. This is how I spell it )
Used two 8′ lengths of Schedule 80 2″OD pipe connected with a 2′ Schedule 40 1 1/2″ pipe to join them.
So far this is extremely solid and works like a charm.
I’ve gotten 5 sections total installed with 4 left to go. As you can see in the pictures below I am using my ATV winch to haul the sections up. Much less work on the ground crew and I don’t have to worry that someone will sneeze, let go of the rope and a section comes crashing to the ground.
