    I'm running a bit short on time this year, so quick and dirtied it for the most part. Welded some 1.5mm steel flats together into a fan shape and used self tappers to join the air seeder tube to it Legs are bunnings 90deg inspection elbows and the screws go thru the tube and into them. Overall it turned out quite rigid and reasonably neat. Will take some more pics once tidied up.
