Default DIY Dillon 550B toolhead stand for multi Toolheads..problem SOLVED

Originally, I was going to buy extra stands for my Dillon toolheads with dies attached, bottom line it will be expensive so I went to Home Depot and have a look to see what is avail, I looked at wood first.. nothing was pre-cut in the diameter I needed, then I looked at PVC pipes.. nothing meets the diameter I wanted, I then headed to the bolts and nuts section, there I found what I needed. 2.5" 3/8 bolts, with 3/8 nuts, and most important the 3/8 x 1-9/16 drop in concrete anchor, also a sturdy piece of wood/particle board I found in my Garage.. this is what I fabricated.. not ugly, not pretty, but very functional.. THA DA... total cost of hardware less wood/plateform was around $13 with tax

Just an update, if you are going to get washers, the size is 5/16, this washer marginally clears the 3/8 bolts with the outside diameter perfect for these toolheads, going with the 3/8 washer would be a mistake as the inner hole is too large and the washer will not be secure by the anchor.. fyi for the diy

I like it but you forgot the plastic sandwich bags to put over the tool head to keep clean
