Making the Base:
Step 1: Cut your pipe.
Step 2: Clean and Prime your pieces.
Step 3: Cementing the pieces together.Carefully read the instructions of your PVC Cement. Wearing your safety gear, apply a thin layer of cement on the primed end of one PVC piece and the inside of one primed end of a “T” connecter.
Insert the cemented pipe into the connecter with a twisting motion. Clean off any extra cement that bubbled out. Repeat for all small PVC pieces until you have 3 longer segments with a “T” connecter in the middle. Next take one segment and cement the 2 primed male adapters, one to each end.
Set aside the base to cure.
Making the Shaft:
Step 1: Clean and Prime your pieces.
If you haven’t cut your pieces, cut them out now. Then, wearing your safety gear, clean and prime both ends of all but one segment of PVC pipe. The last segment only needs to be cleaned and primed on one end. Clean and prime the NON-THREADED ends of all your remaining adapters.
Step 2: Cement the pieces together.
Apply a thin coat of cement to each end of a piece of pipe and the primed end a male adapter and a female adapter. Using a twisting motion, insert the pipe into the adapters male on one end and female on the other. Wipe off excess cement. Repeat for all but the last piece of pipe. The last piece of pipe only gets a male adapter.
Set aside the pieces to cure.
