Both aluminum what i am asking is a 2" .250 wall thickness or a 2 " .125 wall thickness with a 1.75" .125 wall thickness sleeved inside the 2" .125 which is the strongest.

I was thinking the same thing there. The only thing worries me is if we get another ice storm like squashed my quad. I think the Mosley will hold up to it but want to make sure so will the mast.

Both will have similar strengths however I would go with the single heavier piece. Easier to deal with and as the two pipe configuration flexes in the wind the two pieces will actually rub against each other unless they are cross bolted in a couple places.

Good point there CK if i did go with the sleeved deal i was going to put a couple bolts thru it. I also looked at 2" .125 steel tubing quite a bit more weight but i am sure stronger.

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
