LD mod for Shure a27m

I wanted to use the Shure vert bar to run my LEs in XY vertically.   Here's what I did:

I got a female coupling and piece of threaded rod.  It's  a tough size to find but I found it at Fastenal....1/4-28.

I also bought a piece of 1" dowl from home depot.

**EDIT**   Moke has discovered that a piece of 1/2" pvc does the trick instead of the dowl....no drilling needed!



I cut the dowl 8" long using a circular saw.  (a table saw would have been better).

I then screwed the female coupling to the top of the a27 bar and threaded my piece of rod into the other end.

I used a 3/8" drill bit and a cordless drill to drill from both ends.  (This would be MUCH better done on a lathe or drill press.  Drilling through the absolute center of the dowl is nearly impossible by hand)


Having drilled a hole through the length of the dowl I placed it on the threaded rod and coupling and placed the top half of the vert bar on top of that.


I left 1/4" of rod sticking out of the top to attach the tightening screw.

That's pretty much it.  Sorry I'm not great at directions. :P     I have enough supplies to make 3 more.  PM me if you have questions on making one or would like one of the 3 I can make.

For sure.....it's nice to have tools though.  When you get an idea like this it makes it easier and more fun (it's always more fun with power tools)!! ;D

I added a coupling to each end of the pvc spacer.  The coupling is almost the same size as the vert bar and ensures a square edge. :)

Last step....gonna bust out the black spray paint.
