I hope I posted in the right section
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
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!
