Default 3" PVC Tower

I built my own tower from a mini fridge. What type of shank can I use to accomodate the curve of the circular tower. Is there a good place to buy this type of shank. The shank also needs to be at a 90 degree angle because of the small space in the tower.

Right here It also is rounded off to form along the curve of the tube. Welcome to the forum!

When I built mine I put a 3" to 4" pvc adapter on top that gave me some extra room to play with for my tubing. I capped it with a half round pvc cap that fit the 4" opening. This gave it a mushroom cap look that you can find in some of the commercial towers.
