i had an idea the other day, will it work!!!!!
i cut the struts to required length, then add a heavy duty eyelet screwed into the end.
when i come to construction i just put a bolt thru the eylets and screw it shut.
the eyelet will rotate on the bolt to the perfect degree requiredso i can have 5, 6, 3 at the right angle all on one bolt.
will it work or am i just to imaginative.??

Brill, That may work for me on another project.Ta.
Sorry I don't understand what do you mean by an eyelet? How does it form the correct angle?
The eyelet opening will be perpendicular to the strut, the rotation will not change the orientation towards the strut. You will need a long bolt and washers, and bend the eyelets towards the correct angle by fastening all together. Bending the eyelets before assembly might be easier, and using rope (depending on the size and required stability) to tie the eyelets together could prevent bending the eyelets at all.
