Building (buying?) an equipment tree
 
I'm looking at either building an equipment tree out of PVC, or buying something if it's cheap. Does anyone have pictures of theirs so I can get some ideas, any tips you picked up while making one? Any general advice for one

Im thinking about making one with all the broken sticks Ive been collecting

I want one of those Rocket Sport dryers. Looks sweet.

this,

i made one with old sticks and just used shelving brackets from home depot to secure it. i dont have it anymore i gave it to a friend but i could draw you a picture if you really wanted to see it. I used 4 or 5 sticks, took me maybe 1.5 hours

Yeah I may have to do that, looks perfect- and not much more than if I go buy all the stuff myself and try to do it. Thank you for the links

Also wouldn't mind any other reviews for that eBay tree.

Oh one of them looks like it might be made locally. Worth a call...

I built my own and i love it. It is rock solid. I got the instructions from here:

http://hockey-university.com/archives/623

It is a nice set of instuctions that includes quantity of what needs to be purchased.

This whole thing only cost me $25 at Lowes

Jarick 07-19-2012 11:28 AM

Thanks for the link.

I have a Shock Doctor blower, so maybe if I can build a tree I can rig it up. That would be nice as it is a fan with heat and ozone on a timer.

I have one for my goalie gear and one for my son, both work out ok, but not great as sometimes some of the pipes will fall off. A little adhesive can solve that problem though.

I am sure you could build it yourself for cheaper as it is just PVC pipes, but I decided to spend the extra $10-$15 to have someone do it for me.

I have no complaints when it comes to my tree. The way I looked at it is it was about $30 and you can pretty much keep it for life.

doug5984 07-19-2012 01:46 PM

Thoughts on the first two that were posted? Both have air movers, does that help a lot, a little, at all? My gear doesn't stink too bad, but it would be nice to help it dry a little faster as sometimes I'll play back to back nights and wet gear isn't fun.

Jarick 07-19-2012 01:51 PM

I e-mailed the guy who does those racks locally. Might try to pick one up then rig up my Power Dry fan to it.

neksys 07-19-2012 02:07 PM

I built one out of scrap wood. The only expense was some hooks. The most labour intensive part was using a power sander to smooth everything out.

Lasted a couple of seasons with no signs of slowing down.

I didn't use a plan, I just winged it.

I have this one: http://www.hockeyoutlet.com/HOprodin...oductSKU=DRYER

All metal, better construction than the PVC ones, and it's been great for me... :)

I just built mine with PVC pipes. Will drill some holes on them so the air from the blower can circulate better. Costs around $20
