It's probably in the mid to high teens, I'm still working out some design issues to make it easier to build for non-woodworking types and simplify some of my hardware choices to more commonly available items.
That little piece of aluminum tubing that joins the top rail is an oddball size I had to order from a place that supplies materials for making antennas. I use bicycle seat post clamps to limit the travel of the top rail at the tripods. Should be able to come up with some better options.
