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.

I may design an LIA-100 "clone" model set to go with the LIA-77 set. I seem to have plenty of information. The leg would still fit my Ender 5 Plus but a lot of printers aren't big enough for it (in fact, a lot of printers aren't big enough for the LIA-77 legs).

... so, I've added untested LIA-100 top plate and leg parts to my Printables listing: https://www.printables.com/model/48...et-launch-stand
