I found this old hand rail from a pool for sale at the local tips recycle area for $5.00au
Cutting it to length
Boy that took a while phew!
I picked up some aluminium foil and I'm rolling it on to some 12mm dowel to see if this works
In the end I just scrunched it up and hammered it down
Mmmmmm I'm not so sure about this but I'll update you tomorrow when I drill a hole through all this aluminium for the heater to be fitted.
I picked up some Teflon tape the plumbing variety to wrap around the pipe which will be sandwiched between the hole I drill into some MDF hopefully this will prevent the mdf from burning. It's rated to 250 Degrees Celsius.
