i had the same problem. there's nothing that SM is going to be able to do for you. find a fab shop in your area and ask them to turn the ID of the larger tube down a few thousandths of an inch with a lathe. it will fit perfectly after that.

isnt that like the opposite of using a lathe for the smaller tube to fit in the bigger one?

they have the ones that go inside the tube and turn it that way. worked really well on mine. nice because he only turned 4" or so inside, so the tube goes in then stops at the proper length.

also guys, i was curious about what yall are using as extensions from the cup to the superclamp if you wanted to get a bit of angle into the shots. would the extensions from stickypod (external link) work?

thanks!

I think some details on your rig and what needs improving could really help other people if you don't mind sharing

ya i dont mind sharing, i used 3 90lbs magnets and 4 sections of aluminum piping....its the pivot point which needs improvement...its basically the setup on automotiverigs.com cept my pivot point wasnt strong so there was a lot of play...i dont think i have a pic online to show :(

hey guys,

since this thread helped me out so much while building my rig, i figured i would post my first official rig shot here!

my set up can be found earlier in this thread, but here is the post anyway.

that is everything i used, minus the 1/8" steel cable and mounting hardware i used for the suspension piece.

original shot:

thanks for everyone's help in this thread. it's been invaluable. hopefully my info can help someone who is building their own!

If I were to assemble a shippable kit of my Aluminum booms, would there be interest in them? 3 piece, 15' total, threaded connection.
