Totems for movers.
« on: January 07, 2019, 10:56:23 am »

Getting ready to purchase a couple of totems for my larger movers.
Do not have to be Tomcat or Global quality, they will only be used a few times yearly as most of my  stuff gets hung.
Looking for inexpensive ideas. 3 to 5 feet tall is good, just want them off the floor and hate the look of milk crates! Hahahaha
Thanx .

Is this a question, a declaration of intent or a classified ad?  ???

There are two ways to do anything:
1) Do it right
2) Do it over until you do it right

That's a lamp, not a fixture.  Details will help here.

7r Chinese Sharpy knock offs.
Similar to the Beam 260's talked about in the other thread that's going.
Had pretty good luck with them so far, but I keep them clean and continually checking for maintenance that might pop up.
Ounce of prevention goes a long ways with inexpensive stuff.

That's what I was going to guess, but the 7R lamp is popular these days and didn't want to make any assumptions.  I wouldn't consider these fixtures to be large or heavy, so pretty much anything that can support the ~35 pounds and not tip over should be fine.  Out of curiosity, what's wrong with Global Truss?  From a volumetric standpoint it takes up less space than milk crates, has both base plates and top plates readily available, and generally looks nice - especially with an uplight in it.  It's cheap, too.  What do you normally hang these fixtures from?  Also, how do you transport them?  Many folks set moving lights on road cases, which should be close to your 3ft spec. and wouldn't require any additional equipment.

I keep them in their original shipping boxes when transporting them.
I have a 21x21 portable stage that has an aluminum top that raises up it is 8x20 and goes up 14ft. Front and rear decks fold down to form a square with a 8x8 drop that folds off of the back.
Had it built a few years ago got about  18000 invested and just starting to see a good ROI on it last summer season.
But anyways when it was built there are supports for roof every 4ft that we hang them on.
Been using a couple of chairs with the fixtures sitting on a piece of ply strapped down to get them off the floor on each side of the drum riser.
Just fishing to see what's out there.
I found a couple of collapsible ones on AMS that I thought are pretty neat   great for trailer pack.
