  • my homemade basket(s) for my future private course

    i am making some hornings type baskets for at my house
    i have the first one kinda roughed in (pic worthy anyway)
    still has a ways to go, but you'll get the idea
    it has the "portable base" on it now so i can fine tune basket placement, then i will mount it permanently
    it sure is going to make short work of a roll of chain

    Matt,

    you thinking of doing the Yellow paint treatment like at Hornings? or going Red and black for Shelton? or going for a natural petina (rust orange)

    Looking favorable on the build from the pictures.

    Gathered data from a variety of sources for chain configs, especially if weighing out costs vs benefits:

    12 chains can get you started
    at 16 things start being pretty decent
    when you get to 20-24 you're in a great sweet spot.
    If you start with 12-16 then move to 24 chains, it seems like luxury!

      i have some extra white paint i will use

      i looked at the specs on all baskets from the pdga site
      and kind of worked out a happy medium for specs
      it has 12 outer chains because thats how the gaps measured out (going by pdga specs)
      and will have 4-8 inner chains havent nailed that down yet

        i was just throwing at it
        and it catches very well, even out on the edges
        i will have to experiment with the inner chain count

        i do know what too many inner chains looks like, on my costco park and sun basket
        i have been all over with it (none,4, 12, 6) on inner chains and settled on 6

          Well, you won't have to worry about someone stealing those, at least without two goons and a forklift!

                I don't think its fair to include Bake.... He's a good guy.

                  One of the best. That's why he is the forklift.

                      I think olydiscgolf counts for two, but then again maco capo has the equipment to make it happen.

                        That's why I'm the pitcher and olydiscgolf is the catcher! As for Bake, he can run the video camera

                            Sounds like fun where do I 'fit in' in all this?
                            Sometimes my mind boggles. It's so deep my mind actually boggles.
