Steel plate rack?

Just bought a couple steel plates off the Classifieds. Does anyone have a good method for building a swinging rack for a guy that doesn't weld. I was thinking threaded galvanized. PVC or ABS would get tore up by lead splatter.

What about some 1 inch steel gas pipe ? just a thought it comes in many diffrent sizes and threads together. You could drill a hole in it and bolt some chain to it to hang the targets from just some ideas.

Good choice on the AR500 targets, they will last forever!!!!

I will recommend ACE. Tell him I sent you.

I run these set ups on all my personal plates. They have done me very well. They are quick and portable if you need to move them as well. Good Luck!!

here is a link!!
