    Our club is getting rid of a couple of Beomat high capacity skeet machines. A couple of us have considered going in on one and putting a range at a friends farm. Anyone havd any ideas for a down and dirty oscillation system. We don't care about the interrupter.

    Windshield wiper motor will work for Oscillator, But not near enough torque for
    wobble. i am trying to rig up a wobble system for my Atlas AT250 with Osci. You can go to Atlas website and look at their OSC. base to get an idea and then use the wiper motor. I just need a bigger better 12V motor for my project if anyone has any ideas. it will have to lift a 57# machine loaded with 270 targets up about 3 inces. Good Luck JD

    The link is to a 12V gear motor similar to the one we used on a home built wobble. Make sure that the RPM of the motors is different such as ocillator at 12RPM, and elevator at 9RPM. If you use the same or for instance an 8 and a 16 RPM the wobble will be very easy to time before calling pull.

    Build your linkage heavy duty the first time.

    New comers and younger shooters love wobble trap.


    Good luck.

    Gold E, I would like to see how you did your home built wobble set up. If you have time to take a pic, send it to me at above e-mail. Thanks JD
