I successfully made a PVC pipe driver LOL! But everything I make is "jimmy rigged" :) I just couldnt justify spending $60 for a tool I would use 2-3x a year! It only cost me about $2 for an 8ft pipe (and I still have 7.9 ft of it LOL) Here is the link with pics Good Luck,

I like PVC the best but I've also used the old seal, hack sawed through it, sliped it around the leg and used it to push the new seal into place.

I used a 1-1/2" coupling...schedule 40 pvc. I split it in half, and just tapped it down with a rubber hammer. Worked great.
