    If you get a chance please post.
    I need a youtube account to post videos on this forum. I don't plan to create one in near future. Sorry.

    The mapple block was made by a cabinetmaker who lives near my home. I think my girlfriend paid it 180$

    Thank you! I have put 4 coat of satin varnish on the mapple block. I didn't want it to shine too much because i wanted the wood to look the more natural possible.

    I can't really tell what kind of swivel you are using now. It will help if you could measure the hole pattern. My Arc Swivel is designed to fit the modern Everlast pattern. I posted the exact dimensions in another thread here somewhere.
    For now i use the Title lightning fast swivel. I measured it and it has the same hole pattern as the modern Everlast

    When you are ready for a ball hook swivel, they are not hard to find any more.
    Thank you! The Arc Swivel looks great! The fact that you are doing this for charity is incredibly kind of you! I love dogs and i have a lot a respect for people who protects them. I’ll send you a private message as soon as i feel ready to change my swivel!

    Modified Valor CA-53 speed bag platform

    A couple of months ago i bought a Valor CA-53 speed bag platform. I was satisfied with it but my girlfriend gave me a bigger maple board as a gift!!! I was super happy but i was afraid that the plastic bushings won’t hold up because of the added weight. (the maple board weight 60 Ibs, the MDF board 20 lbs) I replaced them for bigger bushings made of PTFE. They are much more solid than the plastic bushings.

    I changed the Valor CA-9 swivel for the Title lightning fast swivel. I bought a U-bolt because ball hook swivel are hard to find and seem very rare.

    The bag i use the most is a Rival 9 x 6. I like it a lot more than the Pro-Mex Victoria. It’s faster, better balanced and easier to control. My next bag will probably be a Ringside heritage or a Cleto Reyes.

    Below are some before and after pics:
