    Default Need suggestions for a simple stand

    I keep tipping mine over on the desk. I was originally going to order the silver bottom stand thingy from Provape but I don't want to pay $40 for another extension cap and the ring. So, I think I just need a simple stand that I can set it in. Plus, I don't want the silver extension cap on my black Provari. I only use the 18650 batteries so the one made for the smaller batteries woudn't work.


    I'm just looking for something simple and inexpensive. Since I've gotten some good heavy tanks recently, it's top heavy now. So, I don't want to tip it over and break them/it. I only have one standard ProVari so don't need a stand for multiple ones.

    Thanks in advance

    Mine's as simple as they come... a 2x2 with a couple of holes drilled most of the way through. Paid $4 for a 4 foot piece of wood (poplar because it was CHEAP).

    Uhh, yes but I don't drill and my hubby is gone a lot. I'm kinda looking for the open and use type of thing. Yes, I realize this makes me seem incredibly lazy. I don't know nothin bout drilling. Haha

    I use a plastic bottle; it's about 4 inch diameter.
    Cut the top off with a utility knife, so it's like a jar.

    I keep a spoon in it too, for eating.

    simple: yep
    cheap: yep - 0
    pretty: no.

    Stuff from Arbor Autopsy. Arbor Autopsy
    If you need an email address, send me a PM. The owner makes the stands to order.

    Edit: The bottom picture. The stand is also the cap for the storage cup on the left. Also, I don't own the stuff in the bottom picture, only the top two pictures.

    Hmmm. Where did you get that? I don't care about pretty. Nobody sees it anyway.

    Yes! That's exactly what I had in mind.
