    I would trust PVC pipe, but how to get a perfect circle?

    I can see it now, a guy with his wife's hair dryer trying to bend PVC in the garage at 4am.

    Last time I bent PVC it was over the electric stovetop in the kitchen, about 9 in the morning with 3" PVC. It was snowing and I needed a sled. Wife complained about the fume, sure they're toxic but... nevermind, let's leave.

    Most trampolines are 14' or larger, but one day I did see an 8' tramp and that would be pretty close to being the right size to use the outer ring.

    I was debating posting this, but what the heck. It'll probably change before I'm done anyway. Quick concept sketch I drew up of what I'm planning:
    [​IMG]

    If you look past the crude bits and disproportions, I think this more or less lays it out. There are a lot of small details in the original sketch that don't really show well in the scan. But, that's ok. I'm using (I think) a Monark Rocket that bought a few months ago, sort as a kit missing pieces. So far I haven't done anything with it, save locate the correct tank for it, and the frame is hanging in my shop. Seems like as suitable a starting place as any...

    I've been dealing with a conflict of build ideas. I had one I was going to do for sure but with all this time to kill until may 1st, I've conjured up at least 2 more build ideas!!!! :shock:

    Conflict on my end, too! First, I was only going to use what I have or could FIND (no purchases other than maybe tires/tubes). Then I thought I had a chance at a set of cream Thick Bricks, but no frame, and now no tires, either! Now I have a lead on a frame (thanks, YG!) and a deal on some fatty black 24's. Now I need to piece together some wheels. AND it's still 2+ weeks before the start of the buildoff

    How many more times can I change my mind?!?!?!?!

    Because.

    And in other news, I'm still ready to go and beat all of you to a pulp, but my wife likes her orange juice without pulp, so I'll just beat you all to juice.

    I'm having a hard time finding the right frame for the buildoff. I'm partial to twin top tubes, but I haven't seen any around lately. I might get a late start... :?

    Just add second top tube. :p Maybe use a cutting disk or sawzall to split your current top tube. Done and done.

    Give me about a week to get pics of the frames I'm letting go cheap to free up space. There are two twin top tube Ross frames that are in the mix. They'll be in the for sale section. One of my frames could be good luck. The first Auction Rat used a Murray frame I donated.

    I just did a trade for a Hawthorne w/ twin top tubes and a single mid tube. I don't really have any definite plans for it. If it'll help you out, let me know and I'm sure we can work something out.
