Latest Projects

4ked Horn and I have been slaving away in the garage the last few weekends on out latest projects. We are 90% done, just need to do a little work to prep for paint.



The swingers are patterned after some that I had fun shooting at during the MGM Ironman 3-gun competition last June. We want to try to get these to spin at 300 yards, so we will have to whip that bolt fast (or shoot the AR-15) - maybe we will try it further out as we get better.



The shooting table is fully adjustable for different size people, and is built strong enough to hold my fat a**. We still have to cut a u-shape in the wood part of the table to allow for elbow room on the table.

This is the first time I have posted pictures before, so if they don't come through I will be needing instructions on how to do it right.


I can't wait to go out and test these! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Pretty cool stuff, man!

How heavy is that table? I see that it disassembles... how quickly does it come apart or go together?

I will try to get close ups of the table and a weight later today or tomorrow.

Re: Latest Projects

I would guess that the entire table assembly weighs in between 50 - 75 lbs.
As for the assembly time, I'm guessing 5 min to put together, and maybe another 5 min to get it oriented - leveled, facing the right direction, seat adjusted, etc. Its hard to say for sure since we haven't had the pleasure of field testing it yet.

Re: Latest Projects

Here is the base of the table. The welds are not the prettiest, but they are solid. This was my first time using a 110v wire feed/gas welder. I had so much fun using it I want to get one - although it would have to be a 220v welder for me to be happy



The seat post connects such that it can be adjusted in 1" increments so everyone can get it set where they like it. These welds are uglier since I was trying to use a 110v stick welder that tripped the breaker every inch or two of weld, and was a real PITA to strike an arc with. It holds my big butt, so I guess it's ok.



The tabletop mounts to the main tube easily.



Once 4ked Horn and I get it all painted, it will be time for some rockchucks!

Re: Latest Projects

Here is a picture of the legs with the adjustable landing pads.



Here is my "#1 long range hunter in training" sitting in the hot seat adjusted all the way down.



Here he is with the seat adjusted all the way up. You can see that we will probably never need to sit level with the table.



I weighed the entire table and it came in at 90 pounds.
