Poles

February 19, 2012

Poles for the bathouse that is….

First, the pivot joints:

Amazingly, the holes I drilled in the support posts lined up perfectly when I drove the 3/4″ pipe though them (I almost forgot to thread the “hinge Ts” on though.)

The pivoting hinge Ts are 1″; the 1-1/4″ pipe slides over 1″ with very little room to spare. A close up of the hinge, with one of the 1-1/4″ support poles pulled back a bit:

From the opposite view, testing for vertical “plumb” and ready to screw together to top sections:

I managed to get the poles joined, bolted to the bathouse and lifted a few feet off the ground before I quit for the day:

It about gave me a hernia getting this thing 4 feet off the ground- only 16 more to go.

(Ha.)

    LOL I’d reserve judgement until I prove I can get this raised….
