Leadpipe Holder

Post by Bach42t » Sat May 25, 2019 2:03 pm

Does anyone know of a good accessory for lead pipes to hold them? Are there any recommended cases? Also, I have seen the Edwards lead pipes come in clear plastic tubes. Just looking for some leads, thanks.

I think somebody talked about using lengths of 1/2" PVC pipe. I don't remember if it was on here or on TTF.

PVC pipe is great, I'm not sure what I got last time I went but I picked up some that have threads that seem to work with Shires *and* Conn leadpipes... in other words, you don't just put the pipe in... but the threads actually screw into the PVC pipe itself so it doesn't move around. Need to check out Home Depot again for more of those...

Not sure if it would work, but the Protec sax neck bag might be right up your alley. Not sure which size, if any, would fit a lead pipe(s)

Kanstul made their protectors from 1/2" Schedule 80 PVC pipe. (Available at Lowe's)
A short length of a junked inner slide tube also makes a great protector. Maybe check with your local tech for one ?
The auto parts store sells 5/8" heater hose by the foot. That works good, too.
Or, you can dig deep into your pocket for one of these: https://osmun.com/trombone-leadpipe-pouch/

Thanks for the replies. I have considered the PVC route, however, I know I have seen some nice transparent holders (like a test tube). I might go the Osmun route, that case looks nice. The reason I ask, I had a set of leadpipes in an old Tupperware container that disappeared so I don't want a repeat once I get the new replacements.

My K+H pipes are sold in a clear tube with end caps. Something like this... https://www.google.co.uk/search?ei=ZpLq ... 94f-j4-JJ4

Anyone know the correct tap size to thread the inside of the schedule 80 pvc (like the ones from kanstul)?

How about conn 88h .525 ? XO .571 bass ? Just thought I’d ask in case anyone knew.

Actually, .571 is the valve bore, though their marketing materials are admittedly quite confusing with regards to that. Unfortunately, I can't answer the question about their threads

Hi Steve, I'll bring a set of calipers to the next practice.. for the .571, we would probably have to use 1/2" schedule 40 instead of 80 (it has a larger inner diameter). I'll take a shot at measuring the thread spacing too...

The look of the Osmun pouch reminded me of a cigar case. I’m not sure of the dimensions of leadpipes ( I just plug and play ) or of larger cigars ( I only go for smaller perfectos, but I know cigars can get very long ). Also small Pelican and Otter cases of some model may work as well as the more slim profile pistol cases!

I'll see if I can get the numbers off the plastic pipes that kanstul used for their leadpipe sleeves.

The ones that came with the Kanstul 1555 are 1/2 schedule 80 and the threads are M16x1.5mm (in case anyone wants to make their own). The length of the two "factory" storage tubes I have are 8 7/8" and 8". I'm so far making mine at 9" as the longest leadpipe I have so far is 8 5/8".

We'll start a tracking spreadsheet with outer diameter and thread size of as many as we can determine = )

I think all of Kanstul's leadpipe collars are the same size and thread, which is the same as Shires. The collar threading is wider than the pipe will ever be, so all leadpipes fit in the same tubes that kanstul made.

Cool. The ones I'm making are identical to the ones I got with the Kanstul, so they should hold anything but BASS leadpipes for Kanstul and Shires.
