The Smartmetalpod is not painted now less expensive!

 

What are the advantages of the Smartmetalpod?

- The legs won’t crark, warp or rott.

- Not much heavier than wood (using 1/8’’ thick metal).

- It is meant to be taken apart easily for transportation.

- The capacity is much greater (using a bigger eyebolt than supplied).

The head, the feet and the eyebolt are  supplied.

View from under, three plates prevent water and debris from entering the tubings.

It has 5/8’’ pins with handels and ‘’R’’ pins for easy removal and transportation.

There is plenty of room for the winch.

This is how the pins are removed without tools.

The feet have 3/8 inch bolts, this is how they  stand on the groung (4’’ X 4’’)

It is now being sold unpainted for $60 canadian.

It is meant to receive 2’’ square tubing

Here is how the Smartmetalpod was tested

An hydraulic press was pushing on a small hydraulic cylinder that was pushing on the nut of the eyebolt. The hydraulic cylinder is filled with oil but is used to read the pressure applied onto it by having the access hole plug with a pressure guage. The diameter of the piston of the hydraulic cylindre is 45mm and the pressure read is 3000 PSI, thus the force applied onto the nut is:

FORCE = PRESSURE X SURFACE

FORCE = 3000 LBS/square INCH X 2.45 square INCH = 7400 lbs or almost 4 tons!


I did not notice any deformation after the test.
