    Ok all, full set of comp targets (40+) are now finished and put into the powder box for storage. I've been busy in the past 6 months as I've serviced almost a hundred HFT and FT targets. I know that although we probably have the most targets in a club, we just weren't maintaining them fully so I've been on a mission to get them fettled. Thanks to a couple of others at the club for the help.

    1. Break down the targets and throw away the springs and all nuts/washers/bolts.
    2. Use a steel brush mounted in the drill to remove the paint from the faceplate/paddle/base/links.
    3. Replace the faceplate and/or paddle if they are too badly marked.
    4. Hammerite spray the rear of the faceplate/paddle and base.
    5. Re-assemble using new springs and stainless nuts/bolts/washers. Ensure paint is removed from all touching areas.
    6. Ensure all links are tight to prevent excessive play but that the target falls and resets smoothly.
    7. spray the faceplate and oil all moving/touching parts.

    I've also done the same for a full set of targets to be used for the Extreme series.

    My feeble woodworking skills have re-surfaced as i've made the trophies for the comp.

    Thanks to Cambs for the inspiration to have a crack at these. They may not yet be the trophies on the day as i'm experimenting more and more with new tooling. These home made trophies will be for the UKAHFT pre season, HFT Classic and Extreme this year but i have enough plates to make 36 trophies in total. After looking at the number we were planning the following for the pre-season trophies

    Open 1st to 3rd
    Recoiling 1st
    Ladies 1st
    .22 1st
    vets 1st
    Junior 1st

    First to third trophies in the open. Sanded Bubinga with laser engraved Emley Moor badge (80mm dia) on mirror polished stainless.

    These are Mahogany (60mm Dia badge)

    Zebrano

    Bubinga again (60mm dia)
    20190302_181229.jpg

    Oak with 100mm and 80mm dia
    20190302_181339.jpg

    I've got more Bubinga left with a nice block of Zebrano. Last weekend i sanded for 80 grit to 1200 grit a nice piece of Ash, American black walnut and some Wenge. I do really find working on these quite therapeutic unless the hole cutter works loose and it all goes Pete Tong...:rolleyes:;)

    I'm planning on seeing how other woods work too and have just ordered..

    American Cherry
    Milk Pear
    Panga Panga
    Tanga Tanga
    Lime
    Kiaat
    Chamfuta

    If anyone out there is quite handy and has experience with working/finishing these woods then please drop me a message as i need all the help i can get.;)

    BTW, Bubinga is bastardo to work.
