DIY Emmco style peanut holders

I made this in the last couple days. Thought you guys might like to see...

$32 in steel


Two sets of legs welded up with the support arms in place


One holder complete. I opted to make the center bar bolt in so theoretically it could be broken down if needed.


Second one done


I found these rubber chair caps at Lowes that fit the 1" square tube perfectly


Beta testing


Complete!




These things are available at Emmco Agility for a lofty $150 each! My pair cost me $56 to make.

Do you think PVC would work as well as the steel? Thinking I might get DH to make me a set.

Copper tubing would be another material.

But tell me = what do you use for cheap nuts?
