In > this thread < I show near the end the workshop area on site that I was using, in one picture there is a white colored tower that is used in the chair stacking act. This is a new tower that was built out of aluminum for the new chairs, the ones I just fixed, but it had too much flex in the top aluminum plate. I removed the plate and found out that because of the way they welded up the tower, there was a lot of space between the plate and the frame, this led to the flexing.
They asked me if I could fix this, I told them that I could, I would remove the aluminum plate and replace it with wood, the artists liked this idea very much, they do not like the aluminum tower at all, and the plate on top especially.
They shipped the tower to me today.....
The crate is very neat, the sides clip into each other and can be taking apart or opened with just a small blade screwdriver to bend the tabs back....
My tool boxes are in there too, and after digging out all them darn packing peanuts, I can say that I do NOT like them, on a windy day!
Here is the tower standing on it's street feet, on stage in use it has four feet that are basically short posts that drop into inserts on stage, the inserts are all adjustable to make sure the tower is level.
The tower on it's way down to the Dungeon, I'll have to clear out a space for it and get it level, then figure out how I'm going to do this, I have a good idea, but we shall see.
for starters I think I'll use some very thick good quality plywood, it should be less likely to move with changes in the weather. I plan on making the top out of three pieces, two long narrow pieces that will go across two corners, and then one piece in between these two pieces to fill in the space, but it will not be for anything but looks.
More to come.
