Has anyone given thought to doing a Maker Pipe type system using galvanized steel pipe? The load bearing capacity would be a lot higher than with plain old EMT. This came up because I was thinking about doing a shelving system for certain garden items we have laying around (mainly bamboo and metal stakes). I could also add steel fence posts to that list if I had something with the structural strength to support them. (I also have a mess of EMT that is currently laying on the floor in an impromptu organizer but shelving would be better.) Thoughts?
Has anybody written an offset guide for each of the different types of connectors? As an example, the T connector drawing shows a depth for the pipe end, but not the distance to the clamped (through) pipe.
Judging by prior responses, I'm probably the only person interested in this, but I've built up some 3D design models of the Maker Pipe products for SketchUp. If there's any interest, I'll publish them in the 3D Warehouse. They're not meant to be perfect representations, but *good enough* for determining positioning and pipe lengths. I currently have the 90º, T, and 45º pieces modeled. The dimensions are mainly what I care about, and are based on the product page drawings.
