Making a Whisker Pole ? Ideas ?

Does anyone know where I can find the sleeve and lock buttons to create a whisker pole from 2 spinnaker poles I have? I can remove an end off each one and make the whisker pole if I can find the pieces to make it adjustable.

I need the bushing, spring pins and anything else.

The two poles are...
2" * 10' spin pole
2.5" * 12' spin pole

I do not want to sell them and put another $5-900 with that to buy a new one. I would rather spend $75-100 total.

By the way... where is that button to block the frivolous posters with irrelevant and unsolicited information from posting unnecessary time consuming text within a simple inquiry?

You might get lucky here: Index


McMaster-Carr# search for pins & quick release. They also have a lot of other useful stuff; stainless, plastic, glue, cable, rope, tools
