Default Made a stand for my Anderson Nox shaft

I like the metal Anderson cuff that comes with their shaft because it's made of aluminum and much sturdier than the minelab cuff. But the Anderson shaft doesn't have a built-in stand. So I made one out of some inch and an eighth 6/6 nylon and quarter inch black delrin. It works great.

I really like that a lot. You could apply that to any straight shaft set up.

Looks like all that playing with Tinkertoys is paying off!
Great looking fix!

I’ve wondered why you need a stand since the coil lays flat and prevents the hand grip from tipping over, but after my Nox has seen a few “hard landings” I think a base like yours with arms that will flex a little would absorb some of that shock. Do those delrin legs flex a little?
