Hi guys im stuck! I was wondering if you have any ideas on what the make the actual electric pole out of, I was thinkin a 2x4 then cylinders in front to make it drop. then i was thinking a scrim over chicken wire to make it round! Tell me any ideas to make it drop and how tall and how to anchor it, I also don't know where to drill the hole to run the air hose and cables out of transformer down the pole. Thanks

For those of you that don't know what i'm talking about go to this and watch the video!

Thanks guys!!Industen I'm gonna go with your idea but how to a make it tip? fall or kinda like break in half?
Industen im sorry but i still can't picture it! so this what i understand hinge the transformer to the tube so when the tube tips it will kick out a little? I also was thinking a 1 1/2 bore 4 inch stroke double acting? I still dont really understand how to make it fall over though so attach the cylinder inside the tube at the top, or should i have it at the bottom and have it kick up and then it would tip toward the ToT's, but i want it to kinda crack in half then fall towards the ToT's. Thanks so much for your help!!!
I'm really really sorry but is there anyway u can like quickly draw it in photo shop or sketch it? I really appreciate all the help but I do not understand? Thank you

yeah I plan to have a 2x4 inside as a support, thanks for all your help!!!
