    You crazy!:lol:
    Will this be done with soldered pipe, Or are you going with heavier plastic? I don't see being able to move a rig made of 12mm pexi tube. Have you ever built something with Lego so massive it fell apart?

    Just regular acrylic or PETG 12/10mm :)
    I did do a small test in the past with Bitspower C47's, they can hold 5-10kg. The Bitspower Enhance fittings are a bit stonger.
    And totally true about the lego part, that's why I was addicted to LEGO Technic :dremel:

    Thanks guys, enjoy the ride :thumb:

    These are the things I like to do most, no worries about the fun :D

    I think cheaps was speaking of just how much the acrylic can withstand. No doubt it's very strong tension and torsion wise. But just how rigid is it?

    I will test the acrylic some more the coming days :)
    (There is a possibility I will be using 12/10 PETG though which is almost unbreakable)

    First unpack this amazing package from Bitspower.
    This will hopefully be forming the construction :)

    Unpacking by candlelight.
