New diana plate - video link added
Jun 2nd, 2024 at 9:24pm
 
I have a friend who bought a plasma cutter fairly recently.  As soon as I found out, I told him I had an idea for a project.  The plate is 1/4 inch thick mild steel.  It came out quite hefty, right around 19 lb.

This is actually the second one of these that he's made.  The first one I took to the Down South Sling Comp and gave to Channing as a gift.  I'm so excited to get mine!  I just have to drill some mounting holes and get it up on a target.  Which should be sometime this week.

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

Ha!  100% true.

What happened there is he was trying to surprise me with it.  We never discussed the specific position of mounting holes so he just left them out.  I have a drill press so it won't be hard to do.

And she's up!  This is just temporary.  I'll eventually put this plate on my stand up Balearic target.  But it's on one of the ground targets for a little playing around first.

Looks great. I thought there was green paint on it and then remembered it was a hole Smiley

And a Round 2 has been posted.  No cool slow motion this time.  I just have the plate moved to my upright target, and finding out how loud a tennis ball is against it.

I think the ding is fine.  There's no need to mess with it IMO.
