    I've begun looking to see if I can find any good building plans for scorer's chairs.


    Simple design, sturdy and economical.


    Any help out there?

    These came off this forum some time ago before I joined. I saved them because I had never seen any others.

    The chair is welded steel but you may be able to use the dimensions to make one out of wood. I saved some divided and enlarged drawings as well if you need/want something clearer.

    MK thanks... and I would be interested in seeing the enlarged details. My home club uses metal-framed chairs very similar to these.



    I see that an outfit called Advance Sign (www.advance-sign.com) sells ready-made chairs constructed out of synthetic material commonly used on residential decks. They retail for $395.00 and look like a good product. (395x16=$6,320.00). Similar chairs could be built for less than that with donated labor.


    Just doing some unilateral research on behalf of our home grounds. Any advice is appreciated.

    Guy, You are correct. I made some from the same material, but don't have a plan. I used to have the pieces saved as a template but they're gone now. About $150 to 200 if I remember right. All labor donated.

    If you build the chairs out of steel because, of the weight make sure you use large wheels. Shot at a club with them. Every time they had to be moved was very difficult do to small coaster wagon size wheels.

    Mike,


    Points taken... you'd think a good trap boy or girl, especially one getting paid, would willingly sacrifice their young and sturdy body to serve as a stepping stone for those of us less agile.


    maka, Big wheels "is" good wheels!


    Thanks again MK

    Guy,
    I built a chair from these plans several years ago and I think the materials were less than $100. Use at least 10" wheels. We have not had a tipping problem to my knowledge.
