I have been working on a pvc based drill press when it hit me that all I had to do is remove my drill press jig and just slide a pvc tube over the existing set up and I had a microphone stand! You could add more tweaks to it but this is the most basic setup and it only requires 6 parts (not including microphone) and can be made in minutes.
Update to the update: will be adding wheels and setting the amp on the stand to make a complete semi- portable unit.
Step 1: Parts Needed and Tools.
1 - 4 ft or so a pvc pipe
1 - 4 ft or so of slightly larger diameter pvc that will slide over the first pipe
1 pvc tee (an angled one is better. just used what was lying around.)
1 - 5 inch length pvc that will fit into the pvc tee center.
1 pipe clamp that will fit around the first pvc pipe.
1 dollop glue.
1 drill and drill bit to make a hole for the smaller pvc to fit into the wood.
1 screwdriver to tighten up the hose clamp.
1 measuring tape.
1 hack saw if needed.
Step 2: Make the Base.
Step 3: Drill Press.
Step 4: Put It All Together.
Step 5: Update:
Just needed another short piece of 1/2 in and an angled elbow.
Step 6: Finished.
Step 7: Try This Too.
Step 8: Coming Soon:
