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.
  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

Wanted: Old style Hornady 366 Legs

    You can use any I-beam you can find. Many places throw out short pieces for scrap, or check local scrap yard for some and cut to size,drill 4 mounting holes. Keep in mind this is very small I beam, not the big stuff. You can also heat them up with a small propane torch and spray paint them while hot for a baked on finish.

    How high do you need to get your loader??

    I took a piece of 1x6, about an inch longer than the base of the loader is wide. Put that under the loader and drill the holes down through it and through the bench. long lag bolts and washers to bolt it down...it raises the machine about 3/4 of an inch...now my handle clears the edge of the loading table...

    Try the web address I will try to post. You can buy 12" of I beam and cut in half to make 2 riser legs. I think cost is 1.28 per inch. So a little over 15 bucks. Online metals

    Hey Crab, thanks for the tip on online metals. Ordered 12" I-beam cut it in half, drilled the proper holes, then painted. Here is what I ended up with and they work awesome:

    For the online metals I am pretty sure the shipping is there in the cart at checkout. Depends on method of shipping and what you order. Aluminum is much lighter and works just as well for riser legs-and easier to drill the holes in.

    Claykiller I sent you a PM
