And the best part is that it was less than $5 for two!
Step 1: Materials
One 3" PVC coupling, use DWV since it cost a lot less than schedule 40 or 80.
1" pipe insulation tube, you only need about 4" for each rest.
A tripod with standard screw lug
Step 2: Tools
Glue, I like Super 77 since you can get even coverage and it drys fast
A hacksaw or jig saw
Drill or drill press (not shown)
#7 drill bit
1/4" 20 tap *
Ruler or square (optional)
* If you don't have tap, you can use a 13/64" drill bit and carefully use the screw on the tripod, but it's much harder to do.
