• PVC Pipe
• Bolt matches with the tripod screw
• Hacksaw

2. Then I straighten up the piece by heating it using fire (you can use heatgun) (SAFTY FIRST WEAR GLOVES)
3. Next I smooth the edges using the rasp (you can use sandpaper)

Step 3: Measuring the Dimensions

1. I measured 5mm from one side of the piece.
2. 8,94mm Depth
3. 61,3mm Width
