Re: How to make a rolling boom, well..not roll?

I think your first step would be to take the end of the boom off and see what it is like inside. The stainless fitting that swivels may be held in place with a nut, and you may be able to just torque it down to lock it in place.

Of course looking at the corrosion around the screws, it could be a challenge to get them out without stripping them. They probably have not been removed since 1973!
