How about that the same thing. Function is beauty. I have made attachments just like that for mine only I used round stock welded to the one inch pipe. Good idea.

Thanks Madam.. Still a weird concept to fathom. We bury a lot of people on top of the ground here. Guess they don't want to go to the basement.

Digr, if you post pictures, they want drawings.
If you post drawings, they want pictures.
Unless they want both.

Agree on that!

Even with two left hands & ten thumbs, I can struggle through your drawing

BTW, I have one Sumner from eBay ($20 & like new). It has 'tie bars' from leg to center post ...

Thanks for the scoop on the pipe stands digr! I'll have to remember those. Would make a good indoor shop project for a rainy day. Guess I better push print now, else I'll forget!

Oh yeah, about the jig for the legs. Do you tack the jig to the bench and does it keep the pipe nice and plum while you put on the legs? Thanks. The jig is probably the most important part. Otherwise I know I'd struggle trying to get the stands plum!

Moe, after Katrina and Rita, we'll probably have to bury the next ones on poles "to be no less than 15' above sea level" and subject to final approval by the Corps Of Engineers.

And Digr, It's not that I need pics and drawings, I'm really just wanting someone to make a set for me.

Nice stands also Slag.

Priced out 7/8" Acme rod and nuts ($50)

Bought regular rod & nuts for $11!

If SWMBO has no other plans (right!) I'll get started this weekend. Compressed photos to follow

Very nice stands, I might build me few soon as well. Just one question, is there a particular reason you chose to use 7/8 rod vs. 1 inch, to fit snugly inside the 1 inch pipe? Or did you maybe sch. 80 pipe, and it wouldn't fit?
