    How many of the 4' poles came in the one set for the $23.95 price?
    Six 4' sections are in that set.

    ??? If you are referring to a "center support pole" in the left tripod of my photo, there isn't one. That's a tree strap hanging down. I use tree straps and MSH's to connect the hammocks whoopie slings.

    I used set of 12 sections you asked about to make the two tripods. The fiberglass spreader thingies are not used. I bought the other set of 6 sections (only) to use 3 for the ridgepole and have an "extra" 3 sections.

    The 4' pole sections in both sets are identical and although they are advertised as "used", mine were new. The larger set with the bag and (unused) spreaders works out a few dollars cheaper with shipping than buying two of the 6 section sets.

    If making more then one stand, you would need to figure out how many sections you needed and see what combination of sets worked out the best.

    gmcttr, that is a good looking turtlelady stand! Wasn't able to take my stand to Va. this past weekend in the rental car due to the length. Going to be working on something to make a shorter folded package.

    When I ordered these, my thought was that they could be used to make a TL or a TD stand. I would use a spacer inside of the tube if I was going to bolt hinges on. A piece of 1/2" pvc pipe cut to a snug fit and put inside the tubes with the bolts routed through it would let you crank down the nuts without fear of distorting the tubing.

    Got enough cord to lower the ridge pole far enough from the lashing to achieve the same goal?

    Believe it or not I knew this part

    SMACK! That's the sound of my hand hitting my forehead, and saying "oh, I get it now"

    Thanks gmctter for letting us know what and how you did this. This is a favorite of mine, but I'm back to the 2x2 due to expense. Someday, someday

    Do I have enough cord? Of course...I have the requisite 200'+ of amsteel in 7/64" and 1/8" as well as 100' of mule tape and ~200' of 1" polyester webbing. I may even get by without having to buy more for this project.

    Somehow, as I typed, I forgot that was my plan. I've moved ridgepoles up and down on other stands to suit different suspensions in the past. Thanks for the reminder.

    Wanna send some of that my way??? jk. The TurtleDog stand was my first DIY a couple weekends back, and now the addiction is in full swing. Hammock and whoopies are next on the list, and now I have your 'upgrade' to this one on my mind... It never ends does it?

    I just did a price check on trying to do two set ups, and cheapest shipping came to $106.11. Holy cow that's a lot!

    Not a chance of it ending. Be sure and buy your amsteel in 100' increments at a minimum.
