The instructions are complete so I thought I would put them all together in one thread.

I think this thread needs to be a sticky for easy reference

Very nice Jim.

What do you estimate it cost you to build? Oh, and how much to build one for me?:D

Oh, this should be put in downloadable form, in the hard copy print magazine that I'm rumored to be getting now that I've paid membership, and in the next book somebody publishes on tarantulas! :D Most professionall instructions I've seen in a long while, makes me think even I could build one!

Great job!:D

Yup, someone should wrap that up in a pdf and host it somewhere. It looks really tight. Thanks for posting this. May you have many egg sacks!
Cheers! Ian

What type of bearing did you actually use? The only ones I can find at the hardware store did have 5/8" centers, but the 1/2" pvc pipe is really 7/8" in diameter... it won't fit through the hole in the bearing.

Thanks.

every hardware store I've checked around here that has any type of pvc.. the 1/2" size actually measures with a 7/8" OD instead of 5/8".

If you have the bearing and cannot find the right size pipe in your area, PM me with your address and what you need. I would be happy to put together some pipe and fittings to help you out. Here in my area, this is the standard (right now) for pvc plumbing. Let me know if I can help....Jim

A second thought...
Are you sure you are looking at water pipe?? 1/2 inch electrical pvc has an OD of 7/8 inch, but 1/2 inch ID cpvc for plumbing (at least what I have here) is 5/8 OD. I do not have any here to measure but I think there is a 5/8 inch water line that would maybe be 7/8 OD??????

Anyway let me know if I can be of any help....Jim
