You wont strike out with this light weight custom made bat...
Step 1: Gather All of Your Supplies
- light weight aluminum bat
- power drill either electric or battery powered
- 3, 6" long mobile home skirting spikes or long nails
- a drill bit gauge or washers
- a 1/2" drill bit a 1" drill bit
- 1/2 turn locking screws (can get out of shelf or cabinets) and a tap and dye set
- telescoping magnet
Step 2: Drill Access Hole
Drill a hole in the top first with a 1/2" drill bit then with a 1" step drill bit to make lighter but mainly to be able to access the inside.
Step 3: Spacing Spikes/nails
Using a drill gauge or washer, measure the diameter of your spikes/nails, and drill holes out using a drill bit one size smaller than the diameter of your spikes/nails. You can space the spikes/nails however you like
Step 4: Fastening Your Spikes/nails
Since I had no way of welding my spikes on, I found an old shelf and used the 1/2 turn locking screws, I then drilled and tapped 6 of them for use as a nail stop so that the nails will not pull out of my weapon during use. But if you are able to weld it all together, it would be best.
Step 5: Last But Not Least....
I also made a hanging plaque out of some boards I had laying around. And hand carved a grim reaper above where the bat hangs. That way it will display nicely right next to the man of the house favorite chair...
