    Default Sq tube rifle rest

    Since I have welders and tools and save my small steel I built this rifle rest a couple years back. I didn't like what I saw for around $100 so I decided I would build my own.


    3" sq for the body

    1" NC althread for the height adjusting screw

    Three 1" nuts, one for the height adjusting screw drilled out for 1/2" rods that were silvered in. Some day I would like to shorten the 1/2" rods and silver a ring to them.

    1" solid stock for the legs

    1 1/4" X 1/8 sq tube for the telescopic tube.

    To get the flashing out of the 1 1/4" sq tube I cut a 75 degree angle on a piece of the 1" solid and drove it through the square, it worked like a champ.

    To get the slop out of the 1" althread I welded a 1" nut to the underside of the top plate and with another nut used like a jamb nut, I tightened it until all the slop came out then I tacked it to the welded nut.

    It's heavy the way I wanted it to be. I bought the stock holder from an outfit in Colorado that builds rife rests. I ordered the threaded balls, knobs and feet on line.

    It makes for a good welding project, simple but just as good or maybe even better than one you can buy.

    Dream it, weld it.

    Thanks Bob. The son just bought a new 9MM Glock. They will only sell him two boxes of practice ammo for it.

    What calibers Bob?

    I'm getting ready to load some 9MM since the son bought the Glock. I have some on hand for me but I don't want to run low giving him some of it. Just changed the battery in the powder scale, tomorrow I'll get the Dillon changed over to 9mm.
    Every time Democrats win I'm forced to buy more reloading components.

    All calibers. Don't have it sorted yet. I bought and made 5 reloading presses back in the 90's when we went thru this stuff then. I just bought some more presses. Going to build some too now that i have a machine shop to make the rams...Bob

    I'd like to see a few pictures of your presses, when you get time...
