In the tandy kits, anyway, there was a special 'tri bolt' that was used to fasten the legs together. People have made their own with 3 eyebolts, either bolted together, or welded together. Only problem is that the hole position in each leg is drilled to a different height; therefore, you cannot interchange the legs.

Here you go Trastu - I just had a batch of these tribolts made by a local metalworker - cost was about $6.50 each including materials and delivery.
It is probably easiest to copy the picture and take it with you to the blacksmith. Just tell the guy each leg needs to be
40mm or slightly less than 2 inches… Note: Each threaded ‘leg’ needs to be big enough to go right through a thick bit of broomstick.

Broomstick legs should be about 24" long drilled halfway down to take tribolt. Make your leather 'cap' to whatever size you feel fits best. This is my pattern which you are welcome to copy if you choose.

hey Tony
I have a 3 legged stool and the bolts are 6 mm dia.( ~1/4") Make sure the weld is OK ! It hurts to hit the ground on your back! A painful experience ! :-)

Total agreement - my bolts are also 6mm and I'd also advise checking those welds every time.

I originally wanted to do them with polished brass bolts until I found out how much they would cost to make...
