    I scored a similar type stand for $50 online....The shipping must have been that much, considering that the stand probably weighs 50-6- lbs.

    Anyway, what I did was take the ends down to my local muffler shop, and asked them to put 2 bends, each 10 degrees, in the pieces, with about a foot between the bends. ~ He guy didn't want to take any money for doing it, but I gave him a generous tip.

    It worked perfectly! The stand is high enough off the ground, and still has enough space for the hammock to hang between the ends.

    Thanks Kiliram, this might just be the fix I was looking for, I was planning on trying to add an extra piece of pipe that would go straight up of the ends of the supports but this looks like it would do just the same.
