Sand Filled Speaker Stands

I came up with a easy way to fill those tiny loading holes.
Just a regular sized auto funnel and a threaded metal tube from a standard lamp base.
I put a nut on one end of the tube and dropped the other into the funnel hole.
The nut keeps it from falling through.
I was able to drop the tube down into the three different legs and the sand flowed quite well.
I used an old coffee cup to scoop up the sand and it only took about a minute to load.

    Not sure if it would still flow as well through the tube, but I like to do 50/50 sand and lead shot or BBs for the bottom third.
