    Sluice Legs

    Hey guys....im trying to extend my current 10" x 48" sluice, adding an additional 24" or so.

    The question i have is what is a cheap but STABLE way to make legs for the extension part of the sluice?

    I was thinking there has to be something at Lowes/Home Depot to make these...i already have 1/2" square aluminum bars just not sure what to use to attach to the sluice and tighten to hold it up?

    Any one every build their own legs? Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Maybe you could extend the length of the sluice by modifying a gutter downspout extender and some V mat like this. Click image for larger version.

    well i already have the sluice i just need a way to hold it up lol

    Im going to connect the extended piece with bolts and wing nuts basically but didn't want to spend $40 on legs and wait a week for them.

    Drill a hole that the legs will fit through in pieces of wood. Attach them to the sluice body and adjust and secure the legs with set screws...maybe even thumb screws.

    Good luck

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    This is cheap, lightweight and has many options for bolt location. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Hillman-2-f...-Angle/3053677

    Here's something to think about a walker -- easy to find at thrift stores - my Keene A51 is a perfect fit.
    Plus as we are all getting older we may need it some day.
    Cut legs or adjust to fit.

    I took the plastic parts off an elderly bath transfer seat I got at goodwill
    the leg brackets on the GoldHog sluice look like something a guy could make or find something like it at home depot.
