SHELVES

  - Screw into studs when possible. anchored shelves can only hold up to 50lbs. Stud shelves can hold 100+ lbs. The wood will fail before the flange does. 

- Straight Bracket shelves should be .5 IN longer than the shelf you want to put up. 8 in pipe for a 7.5 in shelf.45

DESKS

- 4 legs for 2-4.9 ft
- 6 Legs for 5-7.9 ft
- 8 legs for 8-12 ft

- Pipe legs can hold several hundred lbs per set of 4. The strength of your table top is more important to the strength of your table or desk.

- 3/4 in screws are provided in leg kits only 4 per leg.

- H legs are sturdier than normal legs. Adding the cross bar is more stable and is encouraged for larger projects. 

CUSTOM DESIGNS AND PROJECTS

If you want to build something like this pipe loop please reconsider. It does not work as it is show. It wont be even or rigid.  

This is called a closed loop. To make one you need to use one or more unions. Unions tend to add an unspecified length to your kit. Usually requiring a second union to the same set of parts on the other side of your kit.

Hooks and Wall mounted things are usually 1/2in a good trade off between size and weight. weight of pipe doubles between 1 in and 1/2 in pipe.

3/4in and 1in diameter pipe are perfect for legs and floor mounted projects that need the extra strength.

STREET ELBOWS

We cannot guarantee a street elbow will be full tightened when facing in the direction you intend it to be for your project.

We recommend using a thread locker to lock the fitting in the direction you want. We use this method in out spider and roots end table kits.
