    Interesting idea...
    The two trade offs that come to mind (and they may not be issues):
    1.) the weak point in the OD pipe is at the end of the interlocking segment - not the middle of it. (Perhaps this could be offset with some sort of notching of the inner tube?)
    2.) you loose some nesting length due to the fixed pin.

    And the more you add to No 1, to decrease the weakened end, you increase to No 2 and make the nested length longer.

    But, if this were to work, you do not have any pieces to lose.

    How about gluing / soldering a short section of the smaller tube inside the larger as a stop / pin?

    A picture is worth 1000 words - so, so I think that this might help.
    The weak point is at that hole, with a through pin that goes through both - my thinking is that the inner pipe provides some additional structural integrity:Nesting.png

    That said - much less "fiddle factor" if you can just reverse the segments, so that has an elegance to it.

    You could also potentially reverse that idea - and glue a small ring of the larger tube outside of the inner one...
    That said - you are putting all of the stresses that keep you hanging on that glue - so it had better be one durable bond.
    Welding/brazing would have more confidence in my mind.

    Wow, I like that better, easier to work the bond. I'd worry about welding this crap steel so I suggested glue/solder. Maybe cut / drill three or four windows in the ring and weld inside the windows?

    And the winner is:
    https://creativeshelters.com/product/connector_FC-A

    This site has an assortment of connectors for 3/4 and 1" EMT conduit. I think the one linked above should allow the stand to be broken down in several pieces to transport.

    Solder is around 400-500 F, silver solder (brazing) would be stronger but is at least 1100-1200 F.

    I will accept that my thinking lead to an even better idea. The holes/pins would weaken it possibly.
    Adding a step is a great idea.
