Since the law is changing on Sept. 1st, I am finally able to use the monster noodle for my noodle juglines without paying an arm and a leg for the hard to find white noodles (I never found white ones in the "Monster" size), and I know I could have done this the whole time and wrapped them with white duct tape but the tape starts to slide over time and they get all sticky. And to be honest, duct tape aint cheap either. This morning CCBIRDDOGWOMAN wen't to her sisters so I decided to stay in & build my new juglines and do a D.I.Y. thread on how to build them, so here goes: (this will probably have to be 2-3 posts, so bear with me.
In this "How to" I am making four Juglines.
What you need:
1- "Monster" pool noodle (any color but orange in Texas beginning Sept 1st 2014) Cut into 13 3/4" sections (4 equal sections)
4- 24" pieces of 1" schedule 40 PVC
8- 1" PVC caps
4- 1/4" x 2" Stainless Steel Eye bolts
8- 1/4 Stainless Steel nuts (eye bolts come with 1 each, you need 3 each - or you could just get lock nuts too)
8- 1/4" Stainless Steel washers
8- Cut pieces from an old pool noodle (or foam from some other source)
4- Weights (4 - 4 1/2 oz each) for inside pvc (I use lead but you can use rebar)
Regular Gorilla glue
Gorilla Glue 5 minute Epoxy
Here are all the materials (except lead & cut pieces of old noodle)
I started with sliding the Pool noodle over the PVC (it is a tight fit which is great, you dont have to glue them like the smaller noodle with 1/2" pvc)
Then I glued the end caps on with Gorilla Glue 5 minute epoxy and stuffed a piece of the cut up old noodle all the way to the end (this serves as a cushion so when the weight slides back and forth, it won't knock the end caps off) I use an old arrow shaft to get it pushed all the way to the end.
