hello everyone! Is after Halloween so now i'm full force Christmas lol. for the past couple years i have had a 12 food 'mega tree' that i had 1 solid color on. since it was only like 2000 lights i used pvc and it worked fine. Last year i added a tree to the light show display. This tree was 3 colors and also about 12 feet tall. BUT, stupid me still made it out of pvc. obviously this was to heavy for the pvc and the pole was very wobbly and halfway through the year it snapped. This year, i want to replace the pvc with metal pipe and use a pulley system to be able to get to 15 feet. my questions are, what type of pipe can i uses (because i am 15 years old and do not have a lot of help so this is moat likely to be a 2 person job) also, how the heck do you construct the pulley heads with the pvc reducer. I cant figure it out for the life of me! any info will be GREATLY appreciated! thanks!!
Sharryrn posted a topic in Mega-PolesI have an existing 25-30' permanent flag pole that I would like to make into a mega tree. It is not telescoping and is too tall to get a ladder to (nor would I want to climb that high). The top of the pole has a pulley that the rope rides upon to raise and lower the flag. My question is that I don't know how to make a topper that would hold the light strings and be able to raise and lower with the existing pulley system. I've searched high and low and haven't been able to find something that I could make that would suffice. I had thought of making it out of treated plywood cut into two sections that could be hinged to allow it to be opened and then closed around the pole, land then hoisted up once the lights were attached. I just don't want to reinvent the wheel so to speak.
