I'm a soccer coach. I'd like to make some inexpensive posts to serve as obstacles/markers that I can use indoors. I have 5' pvc pipe, but can't seem to locate or concoct something to hold the posts upright both affordably and that aren't too wide to get in the way of the players or the soccer ball. Ideally, I'd have something that is only a few inches wide with a 3/4" hole in the center to hold my 3/4" pvc.
Thus far, the best thing I can come up with are a few 2.5/5lb thick plastic weight plates where the center hole happens to be just about 3/4" wide. Those seem to quite difficult to come by though! The next closest thing I've found were either heavy steel flanges or rubber mounts specifically designed to hold plastic posts. At $8 or more/each though, I was hoping to find something a little less expensive.
Anyone have any ideas?
