Default Re: DIY laser tripod stand, only 3 parts needed

then, color the cut pipe black and super glue a nut that fits on the tripod (not sure of exact size) onto the colored pvc pipe, and color the nut black too (actually any color would do, i just colored mine black)

(that bump on the bottom is the nut, and sorry for the uncropped pics, im in a hurry)
(100th post, yay )

total est. cost is $1.75, the tripod is from dx for around $1.50 and the nut is probably less than $0.25, the pipe should be the right size to fit the laser in it while depressing the button
