1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I am They are about two or three incheds across and flat with about a three foot handle on them. They work great for clean up of a lot of hulls. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Most of the ones you see now have a non-magnetic cover over the magnet, covering the top and edges. They aren't worth a crap. The older style had the magnet uncovered around the edges and you could get 8-12 hulls around it's circumference. That's the one you want.

    Just take the magnet out of an ol automobile speaker and using the hold in the middle of it, screw it on the end of a stick.

    Rare earth magnets inside dead computer disk drives are quite strong. Take apart on old disk drive with a #6 torx driver and you have a great shell retriever. Screw it to an old broom stick.

    I can make these, but the magnets are getting very exspensive. They are great, because they have 170 lbs of "pull" and you can pick up 20 plus hulls at a time.

    As Hippie said , the magnets from the speakers work great . Take a 5 ft piece of 1/2 thin wall pipe, flatten 1 inch of one end and bend it 45* and drill a 1/4 inch hole and put a 1/4-20 bolt into the magnet then cap the other end with a spent hull. Kids get a kick out of cleaning up afterwards.

    C'mon you guys - 90% of the trap shooter I see NEED to bend over and bend their knees now and then. What's next, shooting from a Segway?

    Harbor Freight is the best deal, their's has release handle when pulled pulls the magnet away from the pick up face releasing the hulls. Look online at harborfreight.com
