Spinner for indoor and out door plkining

Post by LearningToShoot » Sun Sep 17, 2017 10:42 am

Hi guys,

This is something that I made fabricating and assembling for indoor plinking. The biggest challenge was getting the sleeves for securing the spinner in place. I could not find it in India and after months of research, got them again from China. Finally when I got them, I found that ellen key for that size was not available anywhere in India. Again got it from China. Got the rods cut to size. Made the base from plywood waste saved when I did some furniture and got a mini bar bender lathed. Learning. Crude job as I am not an engineer or even a good craftsman but nevertheless did something that made me happy. I intend to do more of these for those who like it. But please.... don't expect anything fast. I am a good procrastinator there but determined. I tested this indoor & outdoor and so far so good. Only concern is when shooting indoor, ricocheting would be a concern, but I figured that pasting a circular piece of thermocole stuck to it should take care of it. Not tried, just a thought.

I look forward to having your comments, brickbats and bouquets, I am not a keyboard warrior so do unleash. :D Only remember, I am not a genius at these things or anything else either.

Anyone wishing to contact me, please feel free.

Nice. I made one (don't have it now) like the first pic. After placing the pendulum target on the rod, I place a nut on each side and did a spot weld. Same effect.

Nice work. How about an indoor plinker with a back stop/pellet stop. With four or five targets in a row.. Appropriate for 15 to 25 meters. That would be awesome.

Thanks everyone for the nice encouragement. @namjaigai, I am definitely working on building one with a pellet trap. Just recently bought a Blanca from Kovibazar to study and explore how to make one with spinner inside. Once done, I will post here. @Big Daddy, You are right. Nuts with spot welding is great idea. In fact I had the same idea initially, but the thought that if I ever wanted to dismantle it, it becomes difficult to remove and have to go back again to the welder. The coupling I used has a allen screw so makes life more easier.

True, now the spinners are available in India too however homemade spinners made from the scratch made from easy to procure & assemble are always appreciated.

Plinksport are great for the cost they come. Completely modular I bought a set and some individual woodpecker targets. Now my boys use the beginner size targets for their ihp 25 and I use the expert and pro smaller sized for long range shooting.
