Default Head Stand

HEAD STAND for less than 3.50

Just a quick thread showing off my head stand which I now use for applying makeup and eyelash repairs without fear of ruining clothing etc.

Made using this BOLT and NUT and some spare wood.













Countersink the 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" wood using a 25mm drill bit to sink the bolt head.
THEN... drill all the way through the 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" wood using a 16mm drill bit.
Tighten nut and bolt to wood, sinking the bolt head so it is flush.
Drill 6mm ply base and countersink for screw heads.
Screw 6mm ply to the 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" piece.

Simple enough!

Any questions, do ASK!

Brilliant, and so much cheaper than the MannequinFan version. I wonder if this could be adapted to accept the top part of the magnetic connector?

MF's do seem to be unnecessarily over-engineered. I didn't know he'd done one until just now.

KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid -

I'm not familiar with the magnetic connection you mention so can't say... but... you could use an M16 nut to join two M16 threaded items together...?

It is the Indigo magnetic head connector. Not cheap, but as I swap the heads around on the 163 body and the TPE around the neck was getting damaged, I figured it was worth it.
There is a piece screwed in to the neck with a magnet at the bottom, then this top bit just slots in.

cheers AH,

really impressive. Need to do something similar myself as I've currently got more heads than bodies.

Nice couple of Anime figurines as well. Got a few myself but unfortunately mine have all of their clothes on.

Next day that I get off work I'll be following your lead with that stand.

cheers matey.

Excellent head stand, a very cheap and simple idea.

I have made a fair few myself, involving lots of time, metal work, they weren't that cheap or simple

Thanks for sharing.

Tommo

You could connect the 'neck piece' to the end of the stands bolt using an M16 nut, or possibly two, using one as a 'locking nut' to prevent twisting.

Just don't use it as an excuse to buy more heads!

It's a slightly cheaper addiction...

I know Samurai has some too as I've sneaked a peek on one or two of his posts!

I saw them myself on the shelf in the room with the girls having a photoshoot.
I don't hav many. A few from the far East and a couple fromm the Anime shop in Brum when they are selling off old stock.
Got a nice, really cute, 12 inch resin figure for 10 because it didn't have a box.
Next time I'm taking photo's I'll grab one or two of my anime girls as well.
