Connectors for Geodesic (and other) Domes

A pretty complete list of connecting dome struts, both metal and wood. At left is the system developed by Bill Woods of Dyna Domes in Phoenix, Arizona in the mid-’60s.

Funny, they omitted what I think was the best wooden dome hub system, the pipe-section hubs and stainless steel strap tightened with a banding device. This was developed by Fletcher Pence in the Virgin Islands in the early ’60s and was strong and elegant. I saw it used by architect Jeffery Lindsay in L. A. and we used this system at Pacific High School for 10 wood-framed domes in the early ’70s. https://shltr.net/domeconnex

    I am looking to buy a couple of Dyna Dome connector kits. Any idea if anybody is still making them? I believe Bill passed away several years back. Hopefully his tooling and dies were saved by somebody. I built a 36′ – 5/8 and a 44′ – 1/2 back in the day. They are great connectors and i want to do a couple more before i get too old. Any info on how i could aquire the kits would be appreciated. My name is Randy. I can be reached at (816) 878-2882 or rhtrigger@gmail.com I am in Kansas City, Missouri
