Which is why I used 1/4 carriage bolts... cheap and easy to come by.

Your implementation looks like it could be the basis for doing that without having to steal parts from the oversupply of Porta-Pad Its at my house.

An earlier iteration of the stand had a different upper clamp, compatible with the same disc set but made to be held down with a carriage bolt. It would be easy to adapt that design to PVC pipe.

What's the OD of the pipe you are using? And do you have a picture of the stand? I'd be happy to design a mount for that.
