    I made my own without a welder. Upon finishing these I found added material that may have been as good but lighter and cheaper.

    Home Depot - 1/2" galvanized threaded pipe.
    1 - 5' section
    2 - 2' pieces
    1 - T fitting
    1- 2' piece of 1/4" rebar

    Thread T-Fitting to end of the 5' section and put each 2' piece on either side (looks like a T). Its not real heavy and can be broken down easily. I cover with a Tyvek paint suit from HomeDepot or Lowe's.

    Drive rebar into the ground for a support stake.

    Total cost $22.

    I did see the plumbing section has 1/2 " copper tubing/fittings that may work well and be light but would be suseptible to denting.

    Hope this helps.

    Use Pvc pipe 6 feet long sections - One to two inches diameter what ever you prefer- place T joint at top cut for arms the bottom of the pipe should be cut at an angle to drive in ground- very cheap- very light and will last

    I made my own. I got scrap rebar from a construction site cut it with my sawsall and welded it myself. If you dont have access to a welder you could get a body shop to do them all for you for a 6-pack. I would..

    I bought mine from LCS.com for $19.99. They are 1/2 " iron painted rod with a welded bolt at the shoulder T with wingnut so they fold up. They have either a folding or welded step at the bottom. I cover them with tyvek painters cover suits from the dollar store=$21.00 and no work for each.

    Mostly a stickman is a post or something to hang a white coat. It resembles a gunner in a white coat and to a trial dog that's where the birds come from.

    Look at http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...ic.php?t=10917 and you'll see several pictures of stickmen in actual use on training setups. Scroll down there is more than one pic.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
