    Carbon-fiber SAND SCOOP HANDLES, coming soon

    Hi all!

    I just wanted to announce that Steve's Detector Rods is nearing completion on a sand-scoop handle project! Many folks have asked me whether I produce scoop handles in the past, and each of these requests have kept me thinking, about at some point engaging in such a project. I'm happy to say, that this project is now approaching the stage where it begins to "bear fruit"

    I anticipate one-piece handles becoming available initially, while testing is currently being done on a two-piece travel handle, as well. These will be very nice, heavy-duty handles, that will include


    • "textured" finish, as found on some other models, allowing for non-slip gripping
    • foam-filled
    • a solid plastic "insert" inside the lower end of the tube (for extra reinforcement where the handle fits into the sleeve of the scoop)
    • soft PVC/vinyl handle.


    Stay tuned!

    Steve

    Hi Steve,
    Best of luck with the new product! One question, will there be a threaded insert in the lower part of the handle to install a bolt like on the Stealth Scoop design? Thanks!

    Rusty -- the first prototypes I've built, have been for T-Rex scoops. But, there is no reason at all that I can't install that threaded insert into that hard plastic core down there at the "sleeve end" of the handle, and then provide a bolt and washer.

    I need to get the inside diameter of the different "sleeves" that are used on the various scoops; for the T-Rex scoops the handle is 35mm in diameter, but the lower few inches (the portion that inserts into the sleeve) will be CNC machined to 34.65mm to fit the T-Rex sleeve. This "machined" section of the tube can obviously be machined to the specific diameter of whatever scoop the handle is intended for. So, I'll need to get some measurements for the Stealth sleeve, the Xtreme sleeve, etc. (or the diameter of the lower part of the handle that fits in the sleeve, either way). Then -- some marine-grade stainless steel threaded inserts, bolts, and washers should make this basic design adaptable to WHATEVER scoop a customer may have. The basic design is ready to go...with prototypes completed...

    More to follow...

    Thanks!

    Steve
