Default Pipe Stands

Here are some plans for some pipe stands I made. They come in very handy, usually built in sets of four and are a must for pipe work. I am always using them for something. Holding that piece on the drill press supporting plates when cutting ect. I made them lite so they easy to move but still quite stable. I have used them to fit six inch sc.40 with no problem. There are THREE legs on each stand.

Digr - that is a fabulous avatar you've created!

Thanks for posting the plans for your pipestands. I'm trying to decide if I can use those for my bike in the *basement this winter.

* For Moe - the basement is the room dug into the ground below the entry level of a house in the North.

They look good, Digr. Gave me an idea on how to make my own screw jacks on mine. Thanks!

I made one, almost the same. I don't have a screw on it. Thats a great idea!
I like mine, and yours are better.
Build it before I change mine over.
(there, that should get him in gear and post us some pictures)

I'll come back tomarrow and post the one I made, so you better get'er done!

Digr,

That same stand ONLY costs $200 from Sumner
http://www.sumner.com/sumner/subdisp...7.9.0.0.0.html
Hardly seems worth the trouble ....

_______________________________________________

Question - Did you use regular thread-rod for the screw, or Acme thread-rod? Most likely, either would work for the small amount of weight I'd put on mine (no more than 200#)

Very nice design & detailed drawings!
Printed both pages & will build a couple soon. As I don't have four Franklins folded up in my pocket

Thanks all I used regular 7/8" [1" would be better] coarse threaded rod with a heavy nut. I just used mine for horses to build a ladder rack, ran a angle form stand to stand to make a set of wide horses. You should have four LOL
