So the field line chalkers are too expensive to use for practice and baseball. So I made one to save money and easy for the kids to learn the field.
Step 1: Materials.
2 bucket lids
A length of gutter screen
1/4 inch threaded rod
1/4 inch hardware
3ft length of 1/2 EMT
Step 2: Prep
Drill holes in center is lids
Cut screen to wrap around and overlap a little bit.
Tie them together with small tie wraps
I taped it on the edges cause the screen was too large so I narrowed it to about 2 inches.
Step 3: Put It Together
Drill a 5/16 hole in the emt and in the lids.
Run the rod through and cut it to length
On the rod put a nut a washer emt a washer a nut then another nut and then another washer. Then sandwich one lid and put a washer and another nut. Tighten down then add powder and put the other lid and a washer and tighten down with a wing nut.
Step 4: Finished
Now go make lines for your kids to play baseball or whatever sport they want. Easy huh. And it was less then 10 bucks. (Patent pending)
