A bit of pole bendin




Next comes the pole bending, basically i hammer a couple of scaffold poles into the ground and bend the pipes around them, leave it for a day or even an hour and i can then place them onto the poles..
So now that most of the scaffold poles are fairly steady, i can concentrate on putting up those hoops and movin on. Because this plastic is quite thick 63mm OD, you really have to wrestle with it. I like to think of it as dancing with a drunk anaconda! Man, it goes every which way, except where you want it too, is slippery and the ends can really cut deep if you're not careful(i'm not). Not so different from a giant anaconda, except that i'm in a wet field in cornwall, rolling around trying to put this flamin pipe onto a pole..
