Topic: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

.

Binford 2000 sounds much more cool than: Target stand from wood & luck... I'm not a woodworker at all, but I was really tired of the "standard" target stand design. And so I started something new... The idea was to have a target stand, which does not only hold a target to the left and to the right, but gives me the opportunity to crack between points! I wanted it to be modular. To use it the "standard" way, that "hit exactly a point" way and to use both arms separate. And that's what I came up, with. At the moment the wood glue is doing it's job. Tomorrow I'll put in the screws and then - at the WB meeting we'll dedicate it.

Here are some pictures - the making of  smile


The first thing you need - a man who looks absolutely like he knows what he's doing.
Why it's me on the pic, then you ask? I had no one else, sorry...

I look forward to the finished worked. You lucky dog, having access to a carpenters bench.

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

Robby: I love that rough old stone wall in your work shop!
That is one nasty looking machine in photo #1
Now I am sure the stand will come out fine, but too many distractions for me to judge at this point.

Part two...


First - Foam.

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1247_zpsdd4907b2.jpg

And then foam with tape...

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1248_zps93aed3a4.jpg

Now it looks like this - a nice collar. Any idea, now...?

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1249_zps7053e18a.jpg

And more foam...

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1252_zps4f60049f.jpg

To make a long story short: This is what it looks like:

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1250_zpsfb166ae1.jpg

The three "collars" mean: Beginner, advanced and very good whip handler.
And here's why:

For the beginner, you use the first collar. The plastic stripe goes out very far.

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1253_zps1cba62a4.jpg

For the advanced whip handler, the plastic stripe starts under the second collar. It has more stability and is much shorter in the end

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1254_zpsf342ff10.jpg

For the advanced... Exactly. You start with the third collar. That way you can adjust the targets in a millimeter range; if you like. The targets are totally secured and hold in place, yet adjustable in length without any problem  smile

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1255_zps40356a7b.jpg


And so it looks outside. The "usual way for a usual target stand. Two sides, two targets:

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1256_zps168a643f.jpg

Or you separate them. So two folks (or four) can practice the same time from different sides...

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1257_zps80e476bc.jpg


And here's the interesting point... If you want to practice to cut a certain point, you turn both parts towards each other and - without moving the wooden plates - you can adjust the space between the plastic stripes. Bigger distance for the beginner, short distance for the advanced and so on.

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1258_zps5d22fbef.jpg


And here you can see my "old" target stand, together with the new one

http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq16/RobertAmper/Target%20stands/IMG_1259_zpsb8ce7f94.jpg


And here are the target stands I have in my garden. I think, two or three are missing, but the garden is wide  smile

So - that's it. I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and perhaps you're inspired to start your own project, now!

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

Wow Robby,
very cool job!

The first picture is funny, but there is just a "little" problem...
The machine "Angle sander" holds a Disk for Stone. Further you hold it the wrong way round wink big_smile

I am curious to see it in real next Weekend wink


Best,
Ralph

Mistakes are just decoration wink

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

Curious contraption, I should make a stand of some sort...

13

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

Very cool Robby!  With as many stands that you have and a large yard you could set up a training course with stands everywhere.  Start at 1 and work your way around the yard hitting targets.  Fastest Time Wins!

Here's wishing you find time for the things you want to do, and for the things you need to do.
We see ourselves in our children and hope for a better future.

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

I like them! The pic where they are set up staggered reminds me of a tactical shooting course. Crack one target, move up to the next and so on. Looks like fun!

15

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

Very nice Robby, gonna have to make one of these in the future.

16

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

Thank you for your comments! I have so much of those, because when I give seminars I'd like to have max. two people on one target stand at the same time. And...Shooting course? Sounds cool...  smile

Thanks again,

Re: The new Binford 2000 Target Stand!

That does it- first I saw Bobbi's new stand and now this,( even though this is an older thread)  I need to wrangle a new target stand!
