OC, Meant to ask, does the kit come with instructions for making the poles?

Joe,

I think if you look in the files section.
"Green banner up top"
There's a drawing with dimensions.

Thanks Turbs. It was right where you said it would be. Problem now is I tried to download it, and was informed that a security token was missing. Don't know if it a website issue or my tablets issue.

Hi all,

Finally got OC's brackets installed and so far the idea is terrific. The only problem I am encountering is using the 1-1/4" and 1" PVC electrical conduit for the legs. They don't seem real strong, in fact the tend to bend quite a bit especially when I snug the ratchet strap up. Has anyone else experienced this?? I'm sure if I used metal it would be better.

Steve

I have no problem what so ever with the PVC poles I built!

I never was sold on the PVC
Until I can get OC to make me poles, I bought telescopic pool skimmer poles.
Other than being blue (I'll paint them brown)
They are pre drilled for the top bolt and the "handle" is the end that plants on the ground
They have the friction style lock and 3 piece for added strength
They look like they were an factory option (other than the pain not matching)
I'm still hoping OC gets some pole stock in FLA,but haven't heard.
Hint hint

So far, not enough folks willing to come to Concord to pick them up and I need to buy material for at least 10 sets to get the supplier to order and cut the tubing. I might even make some in FL if anyone wants to come to the Kissimmee area to pick them up.

Thanks anyway OC if you ever have an extra set I know where you live.

Oc,

When you make poles, what material do you use?
