Looking to make speaker stands....
« on: May 18, 2018, 12:29:55 PM »
Have some large monitors, urei 815, thst I got long ago. I don't have them in Soffits and I do enjoy how they sound.
I am debating the best way to make monitor stands for them. I should make them as nothing on the market I have found looks like it would support the size and or weight.

any suggestions outside of the Paul gold sandbox.

Can you weld? Or do you know a friend who can weld?

Flat plates of steel welded on each end of a steel scaffolding pole, paint to choice.

Those are big beasts, so stands made of wood might have to be very substantial and obtrusive.

Best

I have a friend who can weld. But  would it be o.k. to bolt the flat plates of steel to that frame? I think that would work as well.  Having stands with wheels would be a bonus.

I was also thinking making frames from Pipe.  I Was thinking I could make a frame with iron pipe found at the local hardware store. I  was thinking  minimum 5 pipes vertical attached to a square 

or perhaps an Industrial Scissor Lift Table like in the link below. Obviously not at that price but something along those lines.

A dolly is easy enough to make with some wheels that have a brake???
