Here's some pics of Bad Boy in his construction stage, can't get the Imagstation link to work so I'll just post a few picks. This is going to take some time dammit. 1st pic is BAD BOY in his pieces stage. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/pda603b471a7a50da3cad40ec5597c792/fbe54580.jpg[/img] BAD BOY getting his shoes welded on. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/p38a4d0d1bcf2a6dd7b0a5c87edfbc92b/fbe438c0.jpg[/img] Angle irons will hold 1/2 brick. These were shortened to roughly size of brick [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/p8d51763f5a94e981c819b04ba136eb61/fbe5309d.jpg[/img] Finished except for wood. BAD BOY is a heavy dude by himself, by adding the brick he really can hold his own against the wind. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/p48c728303f97e76851cea84871596d51/fbe5458b.jpg[/img] BAD BOY with brick [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/p45bdb850465bd28b77f9f11bba3799bf/fbe52ea2.jpg[/img] Top view shows feet [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/p42f805b77fc671cc765d0d8017b35e8b/fbe52e78.jpg[/img] Notice how tightly the wood fits into BAD BOYS pockets, no slop or movement, a gentle tap shaves the woods corners as it goes in making for a tight fit. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/p7aa7691e47573686df7881731201c7c5/fbe52fed.jpg[/img] Here's one I bought, I really wanted something heavier and would hold the wood better, I will use it in the basement this winter for my air rifle shooting. I modified it a bit to make it the way I like. Nice stand considering it's cost and $$$$ shipping charges, BAD BOY ain't no bargin in either catagory.

[img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid65/pd0cf074dd0fdf8099306991aee55e905/fbe4727b.jpg[/img] Im going to try auto interior type holders to hold the cardboard on, they hold so tight they need to be pushed out of their holes with a dowell rod.

You're woefully short of clamps for this project!
Link Posted: 6/19/2003 4:11:27 PM EDT
DriftPunch I have more clamps than what's showing and it's still not enough. Sorry for not responding sooner but I wanted to get all the pics up whilst the mind and spirit was willing and able to take on the back and forth world of posting pics.

How much would you charge for each of these? No shipping since I could pick them up. Thanks,

Dude where you at in Indiana. I'd like to get one too!

Nice work ont he stand , you might want to turn the flag around, the stars when hung as you have it should be on the left.

Looks like you did a fine job! Most I've seen haven't fit the wood very good either, but then wood dimension seems to be getting smaller too! A two by four isn't really two by four, One by two isn't one by two, etc.

ARCHER1122 & jrm theres is a lot of work and steel in Bad Boy compared to other target stands, more than a target stand is probably worth, but I built Bad Boy as a project not caring about cost or profit. If I built BAD BOY's to sell I would have to charge $125 for one, I know I can't sell them for what most people are willing to pay for a target stand, but I know what costs and labor I have in it and have to be fair to myself also. The lighter stand sells for around forty dollars plus shipping costs. I would guess it was built lighter to keep building costs and shipping costs down, I didn't have to worry about those issues when I built BAD BOY. There is also the liability THANG, I have yet to open my business so I'm not insured and I fear lawyers, a lawyer would have no compunction whatsoever taking my house and property even if the shanker knew his client used the product improperly. The dirty MOFO's scare the hell out of me, they really do, they make it hard for a guy to want to help someone. I would like to help you guys out on the price, but you can't buy your tools, material, pay property taxes and insurances, pay utilities and include labor and sell cheap. I've already sunk a lot of money in the shop so far and before winter I have to give the shop a sprayed on insulation job for $3000.00, unfortunately things cost a lot for customers and businesses alike these days. One thing that makes BAD BOY, worth his price is your sons will pass him on to their sons, and If you need/want a steady target for practice, sighting in, or competition he be the one you want. If your still interested in one IM me and I'll check with my POS lawyer and insurance man and see what I can do. Thanks guys
