Brad, It’s your set up I am modeling after.
I have a 2″ box aluminum pole I am using, and I plan to wedge 12-18″ of oak into it by cutting it so fit snug and rounding the corners to get it started. I plan to drill out the center of this oak to hammer in a 3/4″ ID pipe, into which a 3/4″ bolt will slide. I aim to get 8″ of bolt into the pole. Is this enough?
If you can send me the plans Brad I’d really appreciate it. I am picturing two eye bolts linked, one who’s bolt slides into pole and one who’ bolt passes through the yoke.
I’ve put up some pictures.
