Nicely done. We use this stuff to make agility equipment
I though about that however, I wanted it to be as light as possible. A couple of tent stakes wil hold it downCaptain Will said:As long as you sprang for endcaps for the feet, why not fill the feet with sand or lead shot and glue or jam a bit of foam into the middle of the tee in order to provide some extra ballast against windage?
;D not yet but I am working on it...PGNHAWK said:one question, is a rhododendron an acceptable backstop for your range?
Yea, I'm gonna drill a few holes in the feet and steak it down. Was my plan. just trying to keep it light for transport.Captain Will said:tent stakes sounds like a good plan.
BUt do you have to be 21 years old to but the glue?HKFANBOY said:I was really worried for a minute, nope your ok. The pvc is pre ban. ;D
vmtcmt said:Found the fittings I needed on Amazon of all places, <$5 ea., shipped. The rest came from my local friendly Ace Hardware.
Anywho, I wanted them to make target stands to use at Freeport. Just the right width for an IPSC/IDPA target. Light weight, two are broken down and fit in a medium size duffle bag, and in my trunk. I will eventually drill the center cross brace for tent spikes or gutter nails in case I need some additional stability. Said nails or spikes can be stored in one of the legs, or I can just fill them with rocks and/or dirt, and dump it when I'm done.
All tubing is 1.5" PVC. Each stand uses (2) 4-way T's:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003U5NNVK, (4) shallow 90 deg elbows <$2 ea at Ace, and (1) 10' piece of tubing, $7 at Ace. Total was a bit over $20 each. All pieces are 13", except for the center cross brace, which is a bit longer because it seats deeper in the fitting than the standard plumbing pieces, I guess. Total scrap was less than 1". The uprights are 8', 1"x2" furring strips, cut in half. About $1 ea.
