Heres the tripod gantry at work putting Zag up in back in the yard after the show. I can assemble/disassemble alone (with much space around me) The removable pipes are 3" sched 80...the "crotch" is just made out of a bunch of cut-off pipes and scraps. It has a set of extension legs to go slide over at bottom if I need more height (up to 15 feet)and there are trusses that attach for extra heavy loads ...but I found that for such bottom-heavy pieces the 12 height, stripped-down version here works fine...as it can endure being smacked by the piece upon the final settling.
Zag will be going back out to another show in August. Til then...the neighbors can worry over lightning.
