These look awesome, I have gotten my painted but haven't had a chance to install them yet. I also still need to make poles.

I am considering waiting until people peer pressure Old Coot into shipping poles again

OC, you need to find a shop to water jet those instead of plasma cut; wouldn't need all that grinding and clean up. Also could drill holes then have brackets shot blasted or glass bead blasted, saves all that grinding.

Very much aware of all the possibilities that are available, BUT, I am retired and not in business. This is something I like to do to help other folks in some small way to save their power awnings. I don't want to go into business, I spent 45 yrs in the design/production arena and enjoy doing what I want, when I want as long as TOWTA says I can.

Thanks for the suggestions, I do appreciate them.

I agree and am in the same boat as you. Now I rather pay someone else to do for me. Of of them youngsers need to step up.

You start making more poles, I am sure a lot of people would stop by and take them off your hands. (Next time you come to Misery you can bring me a set...)

TOWTA and I decided after our last trip for her reunion last month, that it was probably the last one. Now, if y'all come to NC or maybe FL in the winter, we might just fix ya up.

When he does that, can he drop off my poles too?

I was wondering if you still make the alum if so I live in Winston Salem and would happy to come down and pickup a set
Thanks Don
