Although at the scrap metal yards you have a good chance of finding these things. and remember the heaver the steel the better the unit. and @ 13.75 a foot for thick wall 2x4 tubing things can get expensive realy quick especialy if you make a wrong cut. But I have to agree angle iron is a great way to go.... I mean shit my platform is made out of a bed frame=
    I didn't mean to criticize in any way, you did make a great piece of art! I love to make things also, and sometimes part of the fun is seeing how cheaply I can do it and to improve or put my own twist on an already well thought out design.

    Good job!

    Ninja, FYI, you could probably cut costs even more if you go to your local scrap metal yard. You can probably buy some good used steel there for really cheap.

    I was going to make a unit out of angle iron that I was going to get from old bed rails that I was collecting but I found a deal for a really nice Ringside unit so I never got to follow through. I had just collected enough rails to be ready to start when I found something better.

    The materials were going to cost me nothing because I was just cruising around in my truck every now and then looking for people who had put old bedding out for the garbage man to pick up.

    I figured I needed approximately 30' of angle iron to be on the safe side which is only about 5 bed rails..... It would have cost me about $50 at Lowes, and I was going to try to local scrapmetal yard when I came up with my idea. People throw out those old bed rails every day, especially when you live in a college community like I do. Landlords put a lot of good stuff on the curb when students move out and leave whatever they can't take with them. I've actually picked up several nice TVs on the side of the road, but that's another subject.

    But yeah, I'm a cheap bastard.

    thats the only thing its sturdy and strong now that i got sandbags on top but i just like the professional look of the steel. plus the steel provides alot less bulk

    Big N. your rig is bad ass! It seems every pine 2x4 set up Ive seen on here seems super strong. Steel does make it nice though because you can get the same rigidness from less material.

    yes and if you or any one else would like info on how I built it or if you would like me build one for you just let me know the steel cost 60$ and the wood can range from 18$ to 200$ lol depending one thickness and species. what I built here is a near exact copy of the I box non adjusible platform exept where the drum conects to the metal frame I used a 12" round pice of steel insted of a 4x6 or 4x4 piece square piece of steel. And the thickness and matterial of the drum. Getting the angles down was the most challenging part of this project. Hope to hear more from ya folks

    Ninja - did you build the platform and the steel mount or just the wood ?

    I am interested in the steel mount - and if that is home built - I can weld and I am looking for projects...

    either way it looks great !

    Here are some pictures of a platform I built

    I built this platform for my good freinds Matts birthday. Matt showed me how to hit the bag for the first time a couple months ago on his brothers bag. He himself didnt have his own board and bag. His brother was going to buy him the 70 or 80$ set up. I told him to have his brother just buy him a good bag and swivel and I would build the platform 60$ later I had this built I wanted to build the board a little thicker but wood is so expensive lol thought you guys might like to see it. I will post a video as soon as he gets his bag.

    I missed that one... sorry about that. I haven't been reading all the posts on the forum for the past few months. I've been working a lot of overtime. I've added it now
