    I've recently become the proud owner of a set of M&K S-150s along with three ST-1 stands.

    I need to shorten the poles on them to fit under my screen.

    I was wondering if anyone's done that before? Is it just a case of finding a place that can cut and re-thread the metal pole?

    Any one have any advice on what type of business I need to search for? I've no idea about metal work, and who could help with such a thing. Or are there cheap tools I could use to do it myself?

    Thanks in advance all.

    Thanks for the reply Rob. But it really has not been very simple at all. I can't believe how hard it has been to find somewhere that can clone me 3 shorter poles with threads on the end. It's ridiculous! Have finally found a blacksmiths in Tilbury who have had a go, but made 3 poles 20cm longer than the originals instead of shorter! AND the bloody things didn't fit into the stand properly!

    I've left one base with them now so hopefully the idiots can sort. But seriously, finding a place that can do simple things with metal has not been as simple for me as first thought.
