Does anyone know where I can get copper ferrules to replace a couple cracked ones on my Klepper?

Overland,

There are plenty of sources for ferrules used to repair tent poles. I doubt they will be copper, but it has been a long, long time since I have seen a copper ferrule anyway. Not sure what the Klepper stringer dimensions are but you might find a simple solution at REI if you are lucky. Good luck!

If you need the outer sleeve I have found PVC electrical conduit works well. It's a bit thicker in wall thickness but is a snug fit and does not corrode. For inner ferrules try a hobby shop. Its amazing what they carry in brass tubing.
Cheers Jim
