    Thank you. No I haven't posted any videos, I'm not really a video taking kinda guy. I'll try to get something eventually up but don't hold your breath

    Very nice! I especially like the Mighty Mick's picture. I've been trying to think of how to decorate my speed bag wall. I wonder if they make antique boxing signs wallpaper.

    OK, here’s the ‘before’ platform:



    And the after.....



    This project turned out great. I'm really surprised how much quieter the new drum is. I was expecting a change in sound but it was far more dramatic than I expected and I really didn’t think it would be much quieter. The rebound of the bag is a fair bit faster so it took a bit to get used to that but all good now.

    That is pretty. I like how the recessed mounting holes are inside the bounce area.

    Now all you need is a crane mechanism to help you adjust the height. 45lbs, wow!

    Nice job! Keep the installation pics coming.

    The old drum weighs about 11 lbs, the new one is about 45 lbs.
