Re: Playa bike polo

I've got 4 cones for goals and about a dozen polo mallets that I'm bringing with me.
I'll be camped at 2:45 & "B" with the PlayaWaste Raiders.

Replies: 29

I use a portable bandsaw to cut the EMT and to flatten the ends I made a
portable press that uses a 10 ton air over hydrualic jack with a set of
dies I made. Then a drill press to drill the bolt holes.

I use a Port-A-Band (portable bandsaw) for cutting the conduit. I made my own conduit smasher by using a 3 or 4 ton bottle jack and a set of dies made from 3/8" or 1/2" plate steel and some 2x2 square tubing to make the frame it sits in. A drill press makes short work of the drilling duties. when dr...

I'm looking for a 10' or 12' trampoline frame to make a new one out of for the coming year. The 14' will be the new kitchen area for the Kamp Apokiliptika this coming year. And ...

Martiansky, it's 2" square tubing.

iamtonynyc, that's more than enough to
squish 3/4"conduit. the bottle jack I'm

Martinsky, to get the "U" shape inthe die, I put half of the diameter of the conduit on the edge of the steel plate, traced it, and cut it. According to the Grainger cataloge the outer diameter of the 3/4" conduit is .9220, so it's almost a 1" outer diameter. So by the time you trace it and cut it o...

I have come up with a new plan for a small dome. I was given a 14' trampoline frame that looks to be the base of this project, which I'm planning to mount a modified 1V dome on. Instead of a 5 sided 1V dome, I'm going to make it a 6 sided 1V dome. The trampoline frame upside-down has 6 very nice and...

I've been debating adding a small punch piece to it, so it leaves a nice little indentation for a drill guide. Drill a hole in one side of the die and weld a small piece of a punch in it so the point of the punch is just barely sticking out so it make a nice neat mark. The hammer & anvil method is f...

Thanks for posting those up, i wasn't sure on how to.
It's a very easy to make tool that can be portable
My next version will have holes drilled in the
bottom plate so i can bolt it to an attatchment
that slides into a receiver hitch on a truck bumper.

Elemental, just make your own press. all you need is a 3 or 4 ton bottle jack and some steel tubing and steel plate. make a set of dies to suit your needs and weld it up. the only photos I have of the prototype I made are over on another website.

If I'm right you can do a 2V with an 8'-3" radius using 10' lengths with very little waste. If you decide to go the 1V route just use the 10' length, and save yourself a lot of cutting. Since you have 40 pcs. of conduit, you can get creative with a 1V dome. Instead of doing 5 sides using 25 pcs. you...

Don't forget to make sure the seam on the conduit is not pointed straight up or straight out to either side, point it in the middle of the 12 o'clock & 3 o'clock position, that will lessen the chance of splitting the conduit. For cutting conduit I use a port-a-band, hand held portable bandsaw. For m...

Martiansky, the 10' lengths of 3/4" emt conduit weigh about 4-1/4 lbs. ea. So if I'm right the dome should weigh in at 148-3/4 lbs. then you need to add the weight of all the nuts, bolts, and washers to it.Miss Tara @ Desert Domes has got a great website for domes.

Kernal, a virutal beer is no good.
A minimun of rum & coke is needed.

Maybe a equal shot of 3 types of rum
wil do:
bananna rum
coconut rum
pinapple rum
over a glass of crusshed ice
then a can of Shasta Tiki punch soda
poured over it.
Very Tasty

And for all those who venture into the Kantina with their
