    what would be the maximum weight something like this would hold?
    Right angles, horizontals, and perpendiculars.

    2) How do/did you like your Ahnu Elkridge boots?

    Thanks bra!
    Yes, that is the dreamealker 650 and it is awesome. It is probably the nicest sleeping bag I own. The fabric is so soft.

    The shoes aren't mine. Check with David Creech; that is his photo feed.

    Very good question, but I am unqualified to answer. I would ask Peter Pan or Smee from JRB. They use 2" pipe I believe on their stands that they use at their events like Trail Days. All I know is that their hammocks and stands held up fine for all visitors, even some large ones. Hardly scientific, I know, but just my own observation.

    Could I possibly use pipes from a chain link fence? I just took one down and have plenty of it. Also, do they make 90* elbows and tees for chain link fencing?

    ALCON,

    Derek has done us all a great service illustrating this super easy stand that Ed Speer originated and we simply perpetuated...

    You can use smaller pipe but expect flex, and if several hundred folks will be jumping in and out of hammocks all day long at your demo you will be secure in knowing it is sturdy.

    While heavy and pricy at $180-200 at lowes/HQ it really can be bought in pieces and assembled by hand (Again , if used at a demo fair a tweak from some 3 and 4 inch pipe wrences is wortht the time in security.) Otherwise there is no requirement for tools.

    The really beauty of this stand is simplicity, available parts and NO STRUCTURE UNDER THE HAMMOCK...a key point should there be a failure or unsupervised child flipping out at your demo/fair.

    Thanks Derek!

    I really want to put one of these up in my office, but I'm 1-2 feet short in space length-wise. I want to hang an ENO on this, single and double. Would it be unusable if I made it 11 feet long, rather than 12? I'd hate to do all this and then not be able to use it or have a horrible hang.

    The 12' length would allow a tarp to be used, if your putting this in an office, and don't plan on using it outside, then you can go smaller. ...Rr

    After having to take down one of the trees in the back I would hang from, I see a new, easy project coming in the next couple of weeks. I like the simplicity and ability to break it down and take with me if needed. This looks like the way to go.
    I never hike alone. The voices in my head are always with me.

    Would the stand be 'safe' in lightning situation since both ends are grounded?

    Thanks.

    The stand is not grounded in any way; I'm not quite sure what you mean. And even if you did bring along an 8' copper ground rod and truly ground the stand, that doesn't eliminate the possibility if a strike, only that the lightning will be channeled down through the stand and into the 8' ground rod buried in the dirt. A direct strike to the stand would likely send electricity through the hammock as well.

    The best defense against a strike is good site selection. A stand set up in the middle of an open field during a lightning storm is asking for Oden to strike.
