As I have two sets of SCAM12 pump-up mast legs, one original, and one set I made, I thought to might be useful to make a cage so I could use them with a 2 inch aluminium mast for when the 90kg of SCAM12 is too much to haul about.
SCAM legs being put to good use
Simple cage with 1 inch steel box sections to fit the SCAM legs
Turned pins and snap-rings to lock the legs in place
I didn’t have any 3/8 inch roll pins so used a bit of M8 threaded bar instead. The cap bolt is to lock the cage in place during deployment.
The cage is just made from scrap I had kicking about in the machine shop.
At the top of the pole, I use a nice simple collar and slip-ring/guy plate arrangement. This is for a base-mounted rotator of course
