Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: equipment
first one I made was out of scrap 1X4 but since I shoot crossbow, I've caused rather large splits, and removed large chunks as well, so upgraded to 2X4 for my second.

Date: Tuesday, July 13, 2010, 6:00 PMI prefer 1"x3"x4' pine or spruce for making my tripods. It is very friendly on the arrows that hit it and the stands can take a lot of damage before I have to replace them. The bolts damage arrows but the wood doesn't.
They collapse down easy and fit into my car. Cost is under $6 including all hardware. Legs can be replaced easily enough.

> I have seen both, personally, I have my own for when I run archery at events.Â I made simple tripods out of 2X4's to hold my foam targets. I use the 2" pink insulation cut into 2'X2' squares doubled up, so one sheet yeilds 4 targets. I'm sure that a regular practice would shorten their lives, but for the handful of events and practices I use them at each year, they have lasted at least 4 years so far and I'm not replacing them yet. though it has been suggested that they get covered with burlap. as far as faces, I buy my own for events, though I certainly could get it covered in the budget.Â A trick to extend the life of a target face I've been turned on to is to 'laminate' it onto cardboard with clear 2" shipping tape, also makes it clearer for scoring when near lines.

- hmmm. we have 2# (white) 48" x 9 ', for the walls of our clout, and arrows from a 50#, bow will penetrate some time up t0 6-8 "Christopher----- Original Message -----From: Gary HecathornSent: Friday, July 16, 2010 3:07 PMSubject: Re: [SCA-Archery] equipment
I must be getting different foam than the rest of you. I get 2# foam,
comes in a 4 1/2 ft x 9 ft sheet, 2 inches thick. I cut them in thirds
so I get three 3 ft x 4 1/2 ft single layer targets. We have 160#
crossbows shooting at them with no blow threws. The 4# foam only come
in 24" x 9'. I've got some but seldom use it. 6#, no way, the
crossbows barely penetrate it.
