Good day all: 

      I am new to this form but though someone could help.  I have an old overnighter tent from the 60's I am looking for the center pole. I know I could use an all an one replacement pole, but was hoping to find an original pole. Any thoughts let me know. 

Thanks 

Pete

Welcome to the forums, Pete!

I save poles from spent dining flys and cut and mangle them to size. A pipe cutter, hammer, and vice is usually all that I need.

Welcome Pete!

I too have an old Overnighter tent that I bought a couple years ago.  No pole.  I ended up buying a suitable substitute off ebay.  Those original poles are very difficult to find.

I also have an old Miner's tent that has the original poles.  Got lucky on that one.
