I'd get some 1/4" aluminum plate and use them for your pipe-to-pipe
interface - they'll be just like any old boom-to-mast plate with U-bolts
horizontally and vertically.
A simpler method is to use some angle steel or aluminum across the face
(attached to the leg by Rohn leg U-bolts) and sticking out a couple of feet.
Then you can attach a pipe to the flat part of the angle stock with another
U-bolt and you don't need the interface plate. You can do LOTS of things with
some angle, pipe, and
