I use 1" diameter PVC for all of my insulating 'sticks'. I just cut off a
piece about 2' long then sand it down and attach a piece of metal at the end
(the one i'm not going to be holding). I got a 10' long piece of 1" PVC at my
local Home Depot for less than $4 (don't really remember the price, but it
was cheap), so I can use it for other things, too.
