Easy Way To Make PVC Brackets
Steve May, Prairieville, La., wanted extra lights on back of his Massey Ferguson 26 hp tractor so he could work better at night. The tractor has a rollbar, but he couldn't drill holes in it because that would have weakened it. Instead he came up with an easy way to make brackets out of PVC pipe to support lights spaced about 1 1/2 ft. apart.
  He cut off a 3-in. wide PVC pipe and made a slot down one side. Then he heated it to 280 degrees in an oven until the plastic became soft. The soft hot plastic was then wrapped around the rollbar to make a clamp with two ends that are spaced about 1/4 in. apart. Once the material had cooled and hardened he drilled a pair of holes in it. A single bolt pulls the two pieces together tightly around the rollbar.
