    The weather here yesterday was at the perfect temperature and humidity that I could practically watch cast iron rust! I had to scotchbrite and wax all of my cast iron table tops, table saw, band saw, drill press, jointer/planer shaper etc. not fun.

    Yeah it’s definitely humid here also , that’s funny , but somewhat true on tools in the garage /shop ,

    Easy day in the shop today , just topping off the distilled water container , and inspect the last run of cells , after work went to CT bought a pack of brake /parking light bulbs ,
    And a few other errands ,

    Next item – make a taller rifle rest for it. Both of us had to kind of ‘hunch over’ using it today as all I had along were a stack of sandbags.

    Lon,

    It is reasonably light, but I might try cutting out some additional spots to lighten it up even more.

    That has always been an issue for me too. Having to hunch down to line up the shot. I could see a basic platform and then a set of nested cross pieces to raise it up to wherever the shooter likes.

    I liked the cutouts for lighter weight and the added benefit of easier handling. I suppose you could put in more but too many may not be a good thing.

    I started looking for plans to make a rifle rest and then looked at some online versions – turns out it is about as cheap to buy one as to make one. So, I have one on the way.

    Just a friendly word of warning guys, per forum rules, guns discussions in themselves are not allowed. So far, it’s that grey area talking about a homemade gun rest and such related, but let’s keep it in that realm.

    Nice variation on a Polk style gun rest @MTRoads. 👍

    Point well taken and understood. Construction and features was the main intent. And thanks. 🙂

    No prob. You’re contributions are always welcome. Just heading off this discussion before it gravitated elsewhere where it wasn’t truly allowed. Keep it coming Stan.

    Looks nice, that will come in handy for sure. You can always use drawer space in the shop.

    That is a very nice looking addition Ron. I would think you are looking to be in the AC soon. It has been a bugger summer for working outside.

    Wasted a whole day.

    Did some concrete work outside then an unexpected thunderstorm in the afternoon. I saw the rain coming and protected my work, but the down pouring was so heavy it flooded into my work. What a mess!
