I've been working on this very recently. I'm a returner to the coarse fishing scene after a 40 year interlude because lockdown rules don't allow me to do the 100 mile round trip to my nearest beach! - fortunately I have plenty of rig-making kit for my sea fishing and have found that the 1.5 bore silicone tubing that I buy from Gerry's Fishing fits the base of my 40 year old Shakespeare bodied wagglers perfectly - stick a stainless steel snood swivel on the other end and bobs your uncle! Also, some of the paint had started to crack on my vintage wagglers so after some initial trial and error discovered nail varnish (apologies to the missus!) this is also really useful for changing the colour of tips as it dries really quickly. Although this pandemic has been and is hideous at least it's allowed me to rediscover what got me into angling all those years ago and I'm really enjoying it.I have several old floats, including these Windbeaters, where the 'nub' (or whatever it's called) at the base of the float is too small to use with a waggler adapter.
How would you use them while still allowing for easy swap over?
I have the clip in a float eye ,but cant find the aluminium " barrel " it went into.
