Always wondered, isn't the pvc really floppy?
Also, it seems that just putting a couple hooks in the ceiling would work as well?
1.5" PVC was the point where it became rigid enough to use. I might do the ceiling hook route when I move back into the shop area. I'm currently in a temporary area while I put up a wall in the shop.
I see that you have a Dremel multi-max. How do you like it? I had one. It last about 2 months on the job sites and the motor burned up on me.
I think if I used a multi-max at work I'd get fired (I work in IT though, so construction work at your is frowned upon
). It's okay. I thought it had a much higher learning curve than I expected. Much more of a finesse tool. I used it to cut the PVC pipe and I used it upstairs to cut away some hardwood flooring to bring it back to even with the door (was under some carpet initially). Seems to work okay if you're patient as it works slower than I keep expecting it to.
