This is the only one I remember with a picture or two (and suggestions).

Flightstopper did a nice job.

Awesome. I'm heading to Lowes in a little bit and I signed on here to find the thread on the dog platform. Couldn't have been happier to find the first thread in the dog forum be exactly what I needed!

As far as the mojo remote, that's a hell of an idea, I'll get something put together and post it here in the next couple weeks.

Haven't had a chance to work on it, easy way to do it would be to use the receivers from the earlier postings, I'm looking into converting a remote door bell. I'll post it when I get done if its succesful

Have a friend who perfected a homemade zinger winger launcher using water pipe instead of square tubing.
After the trial run, he made 3 more I think. Ended up having $150 or so in each I believe - $399 new. Each one he made is remote controlled, with capabilities to control 3-4 wingers from 1 remote . I think he got his plans from another forum... I'll investigate.:thumbsup:

OK Phil, you've been selected to order the plans and see if this gizmo can be adapted to some sort of bumper or dummy. Report back soon, please!

Here is my homemade launcher. I didn't have the patience to design one as fancy as some of those but mine works just fine. I got $50 in the pulleys,rubberhose, and mesh pad
2" square tubing was lying around the house
Used an old PSE bow release
$150 for the DT Systems electronics
I used DT systems because I already had the box.

I have everything but the 24V irrigation valve but have been on call for awhile so no build yet, it is coming I am just really slow in the summer with work, camping, workign with Guage and beer drinking LOL. Although this build would be a good reason to invite a friend over for some cold ones.

Those truck boxes look very nice I too would be interestedin more info abou them, my little girl needs a nice blingy box in the truck.

Thanks

Homemade Dog Equipment

Postby gooseman07 » Fri Jul 13, 2012 6:40 pm

That dog box sure is nice looking cwilson!! I built something last weekend that works great but is stictly for Chevy avalanche trucks. This "box" is to be used with the tops that are on the truck. It worked out about perfectly after we cut the diamond plate. We had to grind a couple of the edges to make it fit perfect but it does it's job and holds the dogs!!!

Thanks gooseman07. I would have loved to use diamond plate on my box but I just couldn't afford it. Your's looks like it fits real nice.

HuntnFish76:

The box is framed with 1" square aluminum tubing, the covering is 26 ga (I think) stainless sheet metal, I also put 1" aluminum angle all the way around (on every edge).

Inside the box I used that blue foam board for insulation and covered that with 1/8" plywood, and again used the sheet metal as a divider and used a hole-saw to make air holes in it.

Its just that simple :fingerhead: :thumbsup:

Nice work. A friend of mine has gotten pretty good at braiding himself. I've done a couple pieces, but nothing special. Cheap alternative for some good equipment though!

Thanks. Yea, I learned most off you tube and just figuring it out as I went. Its became an addiction for me. I try to make everything out of paracord now. I've made dog collars, rifle slings, duck call lanyards, etc. Just about anything I can think of.
