From ROCINews - Volume 1, Issue 8

Here is another useful little item that you can make from PVC pipe. It is a cradle you can use to hold your rocket while prepping, transporting, or just for displaying. What I like about it is that you can make it any size you need. I used 1/2 inch fittings and pipe for the ones I made.

Here is what you will need to make a cradle suitable for 3 or 4 inch diameter rockets

2 - PVC cross sections
8 - 90 degree elbows
1 - 8 foot length of PVC pipe
Assembly is pretty straightforward. For this one you will need to cut 8 4" long pieces of pipe to form the uprights and 4 10" long pieces for the spanners. See figure 1.
Place an elbow on one end of each of the 4" pieces and insert the other end into However, this does not apply to industries where drug hair drug testing is a matter of personal and public safety or security rather than productivity. a fitting of the cross sections. See figure 2.
Now add the 4 10" pieces between the two end sections. See figure 3.

 

That’s all there is to it. You could wrap foam, carpet, or cloth around it to keep from scratching you rockets. I just lay a towel over mine.
As you can see this could be made to any size you need. Well that’s it for this course of PVC 102.
