I have been looking at some skeet throwers that can through more then one clay target at a time. they are all to expensive!!!! I would like to build one and was wondering if any one has built one? or any ideas about where to start?

I'm not trying to be a smarty here, but I'd start by buying one that works. I've shot clay targets off of the little cheap throwers and also the skeet range models. I'd hate to think about making one that I thought would come close to working as well as the factory made ones. To make a clay target fly correctly, the angle and speed of the throwing arm has to be pretty much on the money. The arms are made of aluminum with a rubber rail attached and the spring tension and linkage are critical to make it work. I'm not saying that one can't be built, but I'd put my efforts elsewhere before building one.Jim

I understand what you mean, but I don’t like to buy stuff I think I can build better…. I am still going to try to make one. One that does exactly what I want it to do, being somewhat of a welder/fabricator I think that I can make anything I put my mind to. Maybe I am cocky, but that’s just the way I think. I will be sure to post it once done…..it may take a while but I will post it.

Are you looking to build a thrower that throwers more than one clay at a time or a thrower that throws one after the other without having to reset / reload ?

Keep us posted- I can only think of a few things that are more fun than going to the back 40 and unloading on some clays.. I'm curious to see how this turns out.
