Cut my PVC @ 21", wish I'd used 22" or so, now. But these are perfectly functional.

Edit: If you're impatient and don't want to (or can't) hold the ring around your paint can, weight, etc. for 5 minutes, hold it tight around the object while having a friend/spouse/child pour cold water all over the PVC pipe. Two big glasses of water and it's set in <1 min.
My apologies for forgetting. Both links are WFS.
