I had one. It was confiscated and turned into a packing case.

I thought I was builng one, but 3 in, 7 ft and filled with pea gravel didnt do the trick.

But yeah, you inspired me to go furthre, now that I have a garage/outside gym.

Looks fun. How do you seal the ends though? And how much water?

Paperclip, Here's the original article on it. http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_art ... ar_of_pain" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I'm sure the guys in the plumbing section can tell you how to keep it from leaking.

Google will turn up all kinds of info. There's even a site devoted to it: http://www.sloshpipetraining.com/index.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Just put a couple of caps on it. I put a screw cap on mine so I could refill it if I needed to. I had to use lots of tape to get it sealed (first time working with 4 in threaded stuff). Fill it 3/4 full.

I capped and caulked mine.

but as noted, it was too small, and pea gravel not as good as water.
Good bump though, reminds me to try again.
