Galvanised Pipe Guide

What is it?

Guide block for bore holes. In this case a guide block with ¾”pipes for a 2 inch casing. All parts are made of ½”and 1” GI pipe. 

Good Things

Easily made from the same materials as the A-frame pump

Bad Things 
Corrosion can pollute the water 

Wear occurs relatively rapidly if the rope is incorrectly tensioned. Once a hole is created in the guide the rope is quickly cut by the sharp edge of the hole
