I think it's pretty solid, as far as the mechanism is concerned. It just seems kind of big, there in the middle. Is that 3" pipe? Regardless, solid first stab (Pun intended)...
only 2" PVC but it has a connector in the middle-- Might just go with a solid piece but I will have to cut a panel in it to get the mechanism in there anyway. I just want to get the mechanics down and then I will make the changes and alterations.
Ill be working on it as I can . Busy week coming up.Oh, absolutely. Much easier to figure crap out on a large scale and then scale it down later. I'm quite interested in the internals (Shocked you are, I'm sure, LOL) Can't wait for your progress shots and final pics!
Pretty solid work, brother. I really like the mod to the Shurline pole. Don't suppose you have any build photos to show how you did that?
OK--here is another video of the progress to date. I did a couple of different things so let me know which ones you all like best. The first one is kind of big around so I will be scaling it down as I so--Just want to get all the mechanics down first.
The second one I did actually works pretty good. Still have a couple of things to get figured out on it but overall I like it so far.
Predator Spear part 2
Hey Eaglewood, this stuff looks great. I really like the big spear. I have done some work on a spear mechanism. I would say the second extension with the pin stop devise will be hard to accomplish with a round tube. Keeping the pin lined up to catch the hole is the problem. The one I have been working on off and on for a couple of years is done with square tubing. Enough of that. It looks to me like you could use the same coupling idea on the second extension as you did on the first. Does that make sense. I didn't think about using such large tubing but after seeing yours I think it really looks good. Pred **** should be BIG. You are making me revisit my ideas. Keep us updated. This is good stuff.
