Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

I thought I read here (?) that you could buy individual lags from the "fastenersuperstore" . All I can see is full cases.
Did I mis-read or miss some "button" on the store's site ?

Monkee hut + Kodiak tent ??

If using a monkee hut over a Kodiak (10x10) during a typical BM whiteout....how much does the HUT actually reduce the noise and movement (articulations?) inside the TENT ? And, since when it's really windy the wind seems to shift directions constantly, does it matter which way the HUT is oriented ? ...

Re: "New" shade structure material

Capinator; for the 10x10 flat tops....was it worth all the taping and grommeting as opposed to just using the "standard" silver tarps ? How about comparative costs ?

Re: Kodiak 10x14 Simple Shade Structure and PVC Question

A number of people join lengths of pvc or emt. The pvc uses 12"-18" of the next larger size as a "sleeve" (i.e. if using 1" ribs use 1 1/4" for sleeves). If using emt just buy the proper size "connector" from the store you buy your corners and Tees from.

Re: Conduit Shade Structure Questions

Would "angling" sidewalls help in windy conditions ? Like using a 10' tarp on a 7' high structure and lagging down the bottom edge that is pulled out and taut (roughly 45 degrees).

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

If building a flat top (silver tarp) structure using 1" emt what is the longest "clear space" (no supporting pole) you can go ? I'm thinking of a 14'x14' and wondering if I can get by with only 4 corner posts (?).
Thanks..................Ken

You could do a decent report on BM without attending , IF, you were between 18-20 years old during 1967 or 68 (and lived in the SF Bay area) and/or attended Woodstock.

Re-bar or Lag Screws for a Monkee Hut ?

I've seen some posts on folks using lag screws instead of rebar to slide the pvc arches over. Just wondering what the general consensus is.
If lags are used with, say 1" pvc, what sizes are used ? What length and how much is left above ground ? THANKS !!

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

So, some of you folks are using lag screws for your monkee hut legs ? Is that working better than 2' rebar used on 1" pvc arches ?

Actually, it is efficient. The last test I saw showed a Prius ,used as a generator with an inverter (as posted above) was more efficient than a Honda 2k generator (gas used per watt).

KODIAK TENT in the WIND

Where would the best place be for additional tie-downs to secure a Kodiak flex-bow tent against high winds ?
Would a monkee hut (with tarp) over the tent protect it from "bending in the winds" or would it just beat against it all night ?
