Spikes for FlexyTable legs?

Where can I get spikes that have 3/4" threaded hole in the bottom to screw onto the 3/4" threaded rod of the FleXyTable I'm building? Or will I have to have some other spike that is large enough drilled and threaded? At the FleXyTable website they make mention of putting spikes on the legs but don't say what they are or where to get them. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Hi, try Parts Express.

Here is a link to a search result there for "spikes."

If you'll place "DIY loudspeakers" into a search engine, you'll get more versions to choose from. Obviously, you'll have to wade through some sites to find the spikes you prefer but many DIY sites also sell spikes.

"wade" is putting it mildly. Dive without respiration might be more like it.

Are you putting the flexy on a rug? if not, one option is to get a large nut, or better yet a sleeve, that will fit the bottom of the legs of your stand. As someone has recomended in another thread, Place a glass marble in the little cups they create. the surface area contact of the marble should be a point not too different from a spike.

good luck.

PS, I previously built a flexy rack, but have recently switched to just wall mounting as much as possible by drilling directly into the studs. So far I'm much happier witht the wall mounts, especially the turn table.

My Flexy will be on carpet, thanks for the marble idea.
