Speed bag.....

Decided to make a speedbag setup since i found them to be awesome.

Here’s some pics finally figured out how to let it support itself and not bounce with every hit.

Thats the first coat, wood was 2.50 for an 8ft 2x6. Trinagle thingys for support 5$ each and wall brackets 5$ each. Wire was 8 bux for 30ft, then stuff to make it work and tensioner thing 6 bux. Speed bag and hinge were most expensive things lol, 29.99 for the bag and 19.99 for hinge. Works awesome no play on the board and bracket.

Nice. Do you train in anything?

Thanks, what do you mean by train? So far ive put 7 coats will post pics later.

lol, I meant fighting styles, kung fu, karate, boxing, etc

Nope not yet i want to get into swordsmanship or weapon weilding. I like hand to hand combat training just need to find someone to train with lol.

Very nice. Hand built gets more props from me. Nice!

Looks great. Use it in good health.

Thanks guys, ya i like diong stuff myself. Plus i’m a cheap person lol.
