    Altman B-50 reviews

    Cast Iron Base - 22-3/8" is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baically a basic base. The base of choice for all our lighting booms/trees. We tend to step down the 1.5 to 1.25 and then slide a 1 in pipe inside it for an extension. Smaller sized pipe makes the c-clamp easier to utilize. All pipe parts available at your local big-box ( Homie type Depot stores for us.) Many a theatrical , musical or dance(ical??) production has these at the Base of it all. I base my opinion on , basically, 35 years of lighting experience. (YES I OWN A PAIR THAT ARE THAT OLD and they are still in use) OK, Arrived VERY, VERY fast and we are more then 100 miles away. Each in it's own box and in good condition. Excellent price (even with the shipping). I am NOT compensated for reviews (nobody would pay for this many bad puns!!!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! This product listing is incorrect. My bases are much better than the image listed on this website. The bases I received have 4 handles, 2 on the sides and 2 on top, for easy handling. They also have notches cut out for stacking and they are a much better improvement over the picture listed. With free shipping (at least at the time I purchased mine) the price can not be beat! I bought 10 and they were delivered to my front door. At 50 lbs ea... that poor UPS driver! Great job B&H! Thank you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable lighting tree alternative for heavy light fixtures. Safely holds a 12' iron pipe with 4 Source Four Lekos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great update to the classic Altman base This is a great update to the classic Altman 50# base. The stock product photo is not what it looks like these days, but for the better. Altman has added 4 handle positions - 2 around the base for ease of lifting off the ground without smashing your fingers, and 2 on top for easy carrying without dropping on your toes. Now you CAN carry the Altman base with one hand without wearing steel-toed boots!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better then the image leas you to believe Altman cast iron base was actually much nicer then the one displayed on the image. has handles in two different sides with different lift points and groves for stacking that allow for it to lock in place yet still very easy to unstack. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for some standard baseplates for schedule 40 pipe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than the picture. The bases I ordered were indeed Altman brand but they've updated them with carrying handles and stacking notches so they are as good as anything out there. With the free shipping these are a great deal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 50 pound round base It's round, it's 50 pounds, and you can screw sch40 pipe into it.... what more could you want?... Little costly for what it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't go wrong with an Altman base! Thanks B&H! This was a heavy load, even with the shipping cost it was well worth it. Thanx, Doug Taylor Light My Event
