    Steel mount.

    Planed to burn out a stag mount at work tomorrow. Should weigh a bit but I think it will look good all rusted up.
    Will add photos as progress allows.

    Interested to see how that goes.
    I have DXF plans for a free standing boar if you're interested.

    Steel mount.

    Great progress, would that machine be able to cut out full sized stag profiles for Toby's shoot ?

    6x3m bed it has. The hardest part is having it empty long enough to do a perk.
    Cuts up to around 60mm.

    So the short answer is yes, but the long answer would be when ha ha

    Did you see the Manuka running rifle thread. Had ply cutouts with hardox killzone.

    @7mmsaum

    I have plenty of ply and a full size pattern of a hind that we use for the Wilkinsen Cup Shoot.

    Looks just like your pic minus the antlers

    Can easily cut a few out if needed.

    Cheers

    Bloody good work that man

    I'd be lethal if I had a machine like that ......... Boss wouldn't be able to run it for profit due to the back log of homers going through it.

    I would love to make a full size deer target but with a square cut out and gong behind in the lethal area. Mate has one on his game park and its awesome.

    Yep that's the plan.

    Can also remove the steel and staple a plain brown paper over target then use the Perspex scoring rings to score the shots.
    @Dougie

    If you would like to build one I can supply the ply and draw the template ...... You can then cut it out and build a frame for it and hang your steel behind it.
