I have come up with a use for all off the golf clubs that languish in our garages and flea markets. I cut the offending club head off the shaft and Voila! handy 3-1/2 foot probe that


measures insulation thickness
measures joist dimensions
pushes aside insulation to enable a view of the sill
checks for brick ledges
checks for loose tiles (just thump the rubber handle on the tile, you'll hear aloose one.
Checks for rotten/ wdi destroyed wood structural members.

All for 50 cents a club or so.

For a view of the last use mentioned above check out the picture below.

The shaft in the pic has completely penetrated an 8 x 8" sill

Tim.


Your picture file name has a space in it. Link won't work that way.

OIMG 0078.jpg versus OIMG0078.jpg

Sounds like a good idea. I've seen a one pest control guy using something like I picture your's to be. Didn't realize it was a cut off golf club, until you mentioned it.

Hi to all


My good friend and nachi colleague, Marc Hutnick has been using the same high tech tool for a couple of years now, and having seen him in action with his " non-invasive, prodder, insulation mover" I must say that PE is missing out on a huge market ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

much as I like the concept, I am awaiting the digital computerized telescopic version.

Gerry

Wonderful. A golf club that is technologically developed into a Home Inspection probe.


Here's a pic of Tiger Woods holding one of those precious tools now.
