Homemade Rolling Thunder?


Recommended Posts


I like to make my own toys at home, thought of this for the "rolling thunder" handle. One piece of 6" 1.5 ID pipe with a long string of chain running thru it. Then just slip a piece of pipe insulation over that, and a 2"ID piece of pipe over that. Run the chains thru some weights, and clip with a carabiner. Anyone see any problems, or have any advice?

well, it wont be as revolving as the real deal, but the size will be very close. At the depot (and i guess Lowes also) you can get pipe nipples in different lengths if they dont want to cut you a 6" length. Just add a few layers of electrical tape to smooth over the threads a bit.

Thanks guys, I will try and get pics when I get it done. I think I need the pipe insulation too, right, cuz the metal on metal if I just use pipes will prevent it from rolling smoothly, I think.
