Xan's Rack/Pad Mounting Clamp
Using some threaded rod and steel roll pins, a cabinet hinge, some heavy-duty washers, and some BIG, BEEFY thumb nuts, with a little patience, and some hardwood/alumilite/casting metal, you can make a clamp as good as, if not BETTER than the pro market.
I'm not sure if alumilite will handle this kind of job, tho if you put some pipe strap in the casting, I'm sure it would!
If you can cast aluminum, go for it!
Note that I put in three indents to hold one, two or three of the rods that most companies use.
In this rough draft, I included a few ideas for mounting rods.
No dimensions given, as your needs may vary.
Lengthen the rods in the dual clamp to attatch even another piece of pipe rack, or can be used to hold cymbal boom arms, even a plate with a dowel rod poked through it and clamped to this can give you an equipment mount.
Take one of these clamps, and the straight rod, and a few rounds of duct or gaffer's tape to secure a Pringle's can to the rod can give you both a stick holder and a headphone hanger.
If you build one or more of these, please give feedback and some photos of the finished part.
Thanx again and again, Xan 😉
