My Heavy Duty Pellet Trap Design
« on: February 13, 2019, 08:44:17 PM »
I hope I posted in the right section  ;D
Just thought I'd share my Heavy Duty Pellet Trap I built.

I call it the "E-1 Pellet Trap" ...Had to call it something lol

It's a 2 piece design, other wise, waaay too heavy to carry, for me anyway.

A visit to the scrap yard scored 9 or 10  pieces of flat steel plate 1/8" I think...


Welded angle is 90 ...I clamped a piece of angle iron to weld the plates together, I would have preferred a 45, but 90 works.
The front angle part of the trap and the I-Beam with 2 plates are the separate halfs of it.
The inside of the 90 fit between the 2 plates welded to the I-Beam.



Front half sits 2 retaining blocks high, while the rear is 1 block high.



Bottom plate under the angle part of trap held to the I-Beam chunk with magnet.
Just remove and collect the lead with a paintbrush and scoop



The wire stock weld on the top front is for wedging or hanging targets, like egg hanging wires or swing type targets.
Shooting eggs does not get old  8)

 

It has since been painted....umm, mostly white haha

Hope it gives others some nifty ideas lol
Sits in the back corner of the yard and don't have to worry about the wind blowing this thing over!

Ed, I can see why you wouldn't want to lug that beast around. How much that weigh?

@ezman604
Thank you for the move I...oh machine shop talk, hhmmm, I would have considered myself substandard for this area, but I guess I did fabricate something lol
edit - oic, didn't know there was a newbie/fabricate section in this area. Nice!

@Habanero69er

Upon further inspection drudging through the snow, it is currently frozen to the ground and bricks it's on lol

However, the I_Beam is 8"x23" @ 1/4" thick and the rectangle plates are not 1/8", they are 3/8" thick! 17" 'ish x 7" 'ish

Even in 2 pieces, I think you'd want shin guards because the front half bit me once because of the awkward shape lol

I'm guessing at least 40 pounds as a whole, idk, I might be being generous idk lol

Probly take small arms fire halfway decent hahaha

That monster looks like something build to repel amphibious landing craft!  ;)
