Does anyone has any experience building or using a scaffold? I'd like to build my own (it seems Komeri has all the parts) but am not sure if I've got the design right.
Does the design below seem like it would work? I'm mostly interested in whether it's safe (e.g., the angle of the outriggers), but I'd welcome comments on whether it's overengineered as well (e.g., the number of cross braces)!

For that height I would do 1.8m x 1.8m myself, also for added safety you should probably tether the top to whatever it's next to (i'm guessing a building or whatever??).
I write a load of bollocks, don't take me seriously.
The diagonal bracing does not need to be as strong as vertical and horizontal members so smaller diameter (cheaper) pipe should be fine. Personally I might also be inclined to use wood if it was for my personal use and was a big price difference but I don’t value my life as much as I probably should and would never suggest that to other people for obvious legal safety reasons.
Having a design that prevents accidental falls or things falling on someone who might be below is also important. Those were always the scaffolding accidents I heard about.
Stay safe unless you have someone taking video for Internet critique.
