View Full Version : Flexy Rack Feet ???
08-01-2006, 07:13 PM
Hey im building a flexy rack. Just a small 2ft one, withe 1/2'' threaded rods.
I was looking for something to go over the threaded rodds on the bottom feet, something like a rubber foot. What do you all think about these?
Would they fit over a 1/2'' threaded rod?
Does anyone have any other ideas from experience?

I used accorn nuts, work well on carpet, similar to spikes

^^ I bet that would work well on carpet. I'll add 5 of those to my parts list. Hmm, what about the tops...maybe I oughta make it 10...

My flexi rack was going on carpet,so i just used a bench grinder and ground a
V point on the bottom end of each rod. Cheap and easy. I couldn't find acorn
nuts in the 5/8" size. For the top, I used nuts with the rubber insert to keep them from loosening up. They also have a slight taper, which looks better, too.
I did the one off style, where you cover the 5/8" rod with 1/2" painted PVC

Accorn nuts work great- Just don't pay too much. HD has two kinds, one is like $1.50 for six, one is like $1.50 each (zink vs Stainless, IIRC). The cheap ones are fine. Oh and if you grind them down- thread them onto some spare rod. I nearly lost an eye when a nut popped out of the vice grips I was holding it with and went flying around the room.
I think those rubber feet only have a small hole in the center (big enough for a wood screw), so you'd have to figure out a way to grind out the center with out shredding them.
