Waste Pipe Supports

Recommended Posts

I often use serviced pitches, particularly abroad, but often it can mean a long run of waste pipe. So I often take a couple of lengths of solid waste pipe cable tied to the chassis. Trouble is getting some fall on the pipe. I asked blacksmith Pat Loader (he makes peg pullers) to make me some supports to get over this level issue.

 

He has made me 4 and the are perfect! So if you want some get in touch with Pat! I will also try and attach a photo.

They look very good, I make supports up from the plastic waste pipe.

A junior hacksaw and 5mm drill cut them and make holes to slip wire

tent pegs through at right angles to provide a base.

Do you have a link for Pat Loader?

You are right they are very sturdy!

I've seen some plastic picnic wine glass holders suggested on here in the past. I keep meaning to get some and have a go. ... perhaps I'll have a look now.

 

In the past we have used the wooden blocks we carry for levelling, but not ideal.

Gumdrop - at first glance it looks like its made by Harrods!

 

Then I realise it is a short length of solid pipe, the metal awning pegs and one tie.

Brilliant!

Tks!

This is our adaptation of the wine glass holders - they are attached to the long awning pegs, so you can insert them at different depths to create the necessary drop.

Those wine glass holders are very good,

but my pipe offcut supports sit nicely on

hardstandings. I made the first ones using

the tapered awl on my swiss army knife to

make the wire peg holes :D

You mean that thing for taking stones out of horse's hooves?

 

At last! A use for it!

The Pat Loader ones are plenty sturdy enough for use on hard standings and like the robust steel pegs

I use small fishing bank sticks for the waste pipe supports and a bait waiter for my one legged table, which has three trays to put cashew nuts/pea nuts/crisps.

Colapz already market these - with their waste pipe - which is so neat and much easier to store than rigid waste pipe or 8m of bendy 'snake'!

I bought a couple packs of the supports, they are well made, looking forward to giving them a go. I still have my old homemade wooden dowel (in various lengths) with Y shape hooks with screws to fit in the dowels.

The Colapz metal support pegs are that popular they have sold out, I've emailed them to see if they will be getting some more in.
