Anyone know where to get a new element?

I was working on it and I left it for a few seconds and he went over and got tangled in the wire.

They do not have the right size.
I need the end element that slides out....its 4ft x 1/2 inch od with a pinched end with a screw hole for the back door wire.

I was just talking to a local on the CB and he said that new aluminum tubing is not anywhere near the quality of the old aluminum tubing....he just fabbed a PDL-4 and said that the new stuff will split when you crimp the ends....but I have no choice so I will give it a try.

he's wrong about the splitting . i haven't had any problems what so ever with any DXengineering tubing i have gotten . i've used their 1/2 inch , 5/8 inch and 1 through 1 5/8 tubing with no splitting or cracking or any other problem .

the only thing is they require a $20 minimum order S&H not included . and 6 ft stuff starts about $18 just for shipping .

for one section id try texas towers . they might not have a minimum order requirement .

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
