Next, screw the pipe flange to the center of the wooden circle stack and screw in the pipe nipple and the PVC nipple adapter.
Now you have to modify the slip joint. The slip joint holds the extending pole, but it must attach to the PVC adapter. Here you get a 2-for-1 … we saw the slip joint in half. Use the 1-1/2” PVC coupler to join the PVC pipe adapter and the slip ring using PVC pipe glue. I like to insert the extending pole in the assembly as it dries to hold the proper alignment.
After these are dry, I place them into a bucket and screw them in from the sides of the bucket. If more weight is required to prevent tipping, a sandbag, gravel or even a 5 lb round weight can be added. We use these without extra weights.
