  • Identify a speed bag frame

    Good morning.
    I am looking for information on a speed bag wooden frame I recently found in my parents attic.
    There was no bag or bag mount with this when it was found.
    I looks very similar to one I have found on EBay but mine has an additional fold out wooden extension which I believe would be used for mounting to a wall.
    There are letters and numbers stamped on the frame which I will include in the images I’ll send.
    If you could shed any light on this frame such as the manufacturer name, time frame of when it was made, and what bag would have been on this I would greatly appreciate it. I am trying to find an authentic leather bag and mount to make this as complete and authentic as possible.
    Thank you for your time.
    Best
    Alan

    I was unable to add files before. Here are several photos of the frame

      Attached is the patent. Was not assigned to any manufacturer so can't help answer who made it.

        Nice historical piece. Can you measure the diameter of the ring so we can suggest a bag?

          Also precisely measure the hole-to-hole distance between the swivel mounting holes.

              Thank you everyone for the extremely quick responses.
              I was shock to see that Paranday had the patent at his fingertips. As soon as you said it was a Patent I could see the words spelled out. Very impressive!!!!
              To RDShacklford: I will stop and measure the diameter of the ring today. I had already measured the center to center hole distance as I was in conversation with people on eBay seeing if a particular configuration of punching bag and housing unit they were selling would match.
              the distance from center hole to center hole is 2 1/4 in.
              mill attach a picture.
              To Mickey Dix yes it’s a cool find indeed.
              dont know of a value or even what my intentions will be. I do know I would like to find a compatible mount and bag that’s close to the same time period to make this as accurate and complete as possible.
              thanks again everyone for your expertise and interest.

                  You are going to need a piece of wood that screws to your frame using the pictured holes, and the swivel will screw into that new piece of wood. Maybe there are pics here on the forum showing something like that. I'm sure Dutchman and others will chime in soon about the history and ideas for restoration.

                    I never ceased to be amazed at the wealth of knowledge and ability to uncover speed bag history.

                      It was either Spalding, or Nonpareil that offered this style of rebound ring, Somewhere I have some catalog screen shots if I can find them.

                        That thing is beautiful. If I didn't know any better I would've thought it was an art piece of some sort. Wow.

                          Ok
                          so for the delay in getting the hoop measurements.

                          Outside diameter is 23”
                          inside diameter is 21 1/2”

                          Please let me know which size bag or type will be best for this frame.
                          Thank you.

                            Are you looking for something like a vintage bag to match the look of the frame?

                              Alanrnmahler I guess speed bag size depends on the swivel and how low it has the bag. I would think that matters to some degree. But then again I thought I could jump off my shed and easily clear the prickly rose bush without landing in it last June.
