So, in the house this thing is so noisy you almost need earplugs.

I was going to put some foam pipe insulation on the center pole but I saw somewhere on here where somebody used paint rollers. Happened to have a few of those and three of them fit perfectly. They also happened to be a decent color match.

Way quieter for indoor use now.

Ground mounted a chainstar lite using a 1-5/8" x 6' chain-link fence line post (17-gauge).
The factory chainstar lite support pole is a perfect fit inside of this type of fence post pipe.

If interested:
-assemble the chainstar lite as normal, but don’t screw the stand on
-cut 72” fence post down to 46” then duct tape one end of fence post
-mix up one 60 pound bag of quikcrete in a 5 gallon pail
-put taped end of 46” fence post all the way into concrete bucket
-let the concrete cure for 1-3 days
-excavate a hole 18” deep (large enough diameter for 5 gallon pail)
*be mindful of buried utility lines!*
-set concrete-filled bucket in hole, then backfill excavated material
-level pole, then stomp or tamp soil around bucket
-slide chainstar lite support pole into fence post

Material Costs
-fence post $10 to $15 USD
-5 gallon pail $3 to $5
-60 pound bag of concrete $3 to $5

If you know somebody who has cats if you do not, ask them to save a large 40 pound size cat litter bucket for the 5 gallon pail part to save $3-$5.

Great mod. looks sweet! Nice land, you have a bunch of acres to work on?

I got my brother and his wife addicted to Disc in Feb. They bought an Innova traveler basket,

and I gave him my chainstar lite, they were stoked! 9 hole course was installed 5 minutes

from their house! Happy for them. Wish I had a course so close!
