    How long is Temporary?

    For what it's worth to everyone, I bought some extra beam clamps from Sapsis rigging. The first batch I bought from Rosebrand and they were the "China" made ones I was skeptical about in the beginning. I went with Sapsis after hearing some responses from you guys. It turns out, the 1 Ton beam...

    How long is Temporary?

    Thanks for the sites gafftaper! I'll check those out!

    How long is Temporary?

    Hmm. That reassures me quite a bit actually. I guess it's just one of those things that's been passed down to me. The skepticism of Chinese made products. Consider it dead in me at least. Thanks for the reply!

    How long is Temporary?

    I posted a thread awhile back about all of my rigging being installed using chain baskets. Someone mentioned thats pretty common but it's better to use beam clamps on installs. I've heard chain baskets are good for temporary things, as well as things like wire rope slings with burlap. Last year...

    Doubling Truss

    My projector eyebolts are actually M8. :/ Will those couplers still work, or do I need to find something else?

    FS: Truss

    This stuff still available? I'm looking at maybe purchasing about 40 Mega Clamps. What would the price be for that?

    Doubling Truss

    Are there half couplers out there with different size threads? The projector rigging uses size M10 if I remember correctly. I'd have to go check. That's a great idea if I could get that. Won't be able to get some in time for this production I don't think. I've got plenty of spansets. That's...

    Vertical Rigging

    That U-Torm product looks interesting. I think for this particular project we might go with welding something. This project is still in the idea phase, so it may not even get to production. I meant to message you Joey but ran out of time yesterday. Had some things come up here and wasn't able...

    Doubling Truss

    This is awesome information everyone! Thanks a ton! I swapped out projectors because the original one died. The new projector is smaller and the eyebolts are only 16" apart. Still not 90degrees so we are going with the cheeseborough/pipe idea. One more quick thing. The pipes we will be using...

    Vertical Rigging

    I've got lots of random questions and ideas today. All of which I have ideas about but want to get other opinions. Here's what I got. I have a stick of truss (30' of 12" box). I want to hang 4 "pillars" of movers from this rig in between 3 screens. Attached is a picture. Some of the...

    Doubling Truss

    Perfect, thanks guys! That's essentially what I was thinking. No more capacity but wider. I'm trying to get my hands on some 20.5" truss, but if that doesn't come through I'm going to go with the pipe at a 90degree angle method. That seems to be the simplest solution.

    Doubling Truss

    I've often heard of double stacking truss on top of one another to add more capacity to the system. Usually just attaching two pieces of truss together with cheeseboroughs every so often and rigging from the bottom cord like usual, but is it possible/safe to do the same thing except attaching...

    Design Issues and Solutions Hiding a Footlight

    So I have some ideas but I want to see what you guys think. I'm designing lights for Joe Turner's Come and Gone by August Wilson. For those familiar with the play I'm thinking about the vision scene (Act 1 Scene 4). What I'm going for is a strong footlight on Loomis (the guy having the vision)...

    Two Rigging Questions

    Interesting and great information guys! Thanks! I would assume the chain baskets are still secure even though they aren't recommended. I don't need to go out and buy 200 beam clamps and replace everything in my venue do I? (read: hire a professional to buy 200 beam clamps and replace everything)
