    I just got this vintage platform mounted on my garage wall yesterday. I had to put a lot of blocking in to get it level and I haven't painted the blocking yet so it still looks a little rough. The thing is actually not bad to hit on. I put on my Leone bag since it is light and wouldn't vibrate as much. It really does sound like a bit of a "drum" hitting on it. My garage is separate from my house and my wife could really hear it inside the house. I thought the chain swivel would limit what I could do on it but it didn't. I had to get used to it of course like you do anytime you switch but I like it a lot. Here's a few different angles of it.
    BTW, the seller said this came out of a house 100 years old. My house was built in 1913, so it should feel right at home.







    Make a video of you hitting that! That giant leather bag can double as a life raft if you need one.

    The Art of the Bag

      Cleto Reyes makes a bladder that has both a bottom valve and a top one. However I would wonder if it would be able to fill a 10x12 bag without a catastrophic failure.

        I've got it all disassembled now. I'm going to refinish the oak supports. I got some bladders in today from Ringside. This old bag is one that is just going to have to be a display bag filled with stuffing. The other large one I got that was new old stock from the New York Board of Education is just as large and even heavier. I did put a bladder in it and tried to hit with it. Egads, what a moose. Not really alot of fun to work with but very interesting anyway.

          While I was cleaning this platform up I found a patent date on the swivel of October 1924. That doesn't necessarily mean this particular one was made then but it does help date the era it comes from.

            Another Old Platform

            Just picked this old rig up on Ebay for $60 with shipping. Almost same type of swivel and metal loop, but with metal support and hanging arm vice wood. My 92 yr old dad boxed when he was in the navy during WWII and Korea. His face lights up when we go through his old boxing photo album. Gonna set this up in the garage, and hopefully get him to take a swing or two at it. Trying to keep him physically and mentally active.

            During my days as a Jarhead, I saw many an old picture of the old military gyms. Most of these are hanging on the walls inside brand new fancy gyms on the base. There are lots of ring platforms with the metal and wooden frames in the old pictures. Even saw some pictures of some shipboard.

              This appears to be a Sport Fun outfit, probably from the early to mid 1960's
