Re: Interpretation of 3e

I think i found a loophole. Since no portion can touch the testing wall, one could attach a piece of wood extending to the floor. If anyone actually did it, though, the boomilever would probably not qualify as a boomilever, and that length would probably weigh a lot. Also, they would have to know di...

Re: Boomilever B/C

Yeah, it's totally going to mess up my triangular design.

Re: Boomilever B/C

That's correct, but it is also much easier to build a light boomilever than light tower.

Which material is best?

Choose your material!

Glue?
Wood?
Tape?

Pick the best and worst!
(Don't worry, we'll all be able to tell the difference.)
