    if it's just going to be a light stand why not 'grind' all but 1 1/2 turns of thread of of either the stand pipe or nut so they push together all but the 1 1/2 turns they currently do then screw on the rest of the thread? for what you need that'd work well.

    Already tried that route Neil, Unfortunately modern Fire service stuff is different.

    Neil,
    I did consider that initially. But at this point, I just can't bring myself to wreck something that's so beautifully engineered. (Never get anything made close to this quality nowadays).

    However it might come to that later if nothing else works.

    Gav.

    It would be free too which is a cost I'm always happy with.
