Hey guys! Hows it going!?!?!?!?
So you have a hankering to smash some stuff. Or maybe you are in need of a very inconspicuous self-defense weapon. You probably want something that has some freakin serious smashing power. Hmmmm... I know!!! How 'bout you fill a wiffle ball bat to the brim with fiber reinforced concrete and steel... yup that'll work.
12 pounds of concrete and steel... that's heavier than most sledgehammers! The big blue bat will smash a 2x6 in half... in two sings... insane. Also only cost 'bout $20 to make. They are super tough too. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to comment below.
Step 1: Parts and Supplies
-Rebar or ready rod (a.k.a. threaded rod)
-Rebar tie wire
-wiffle ball bat... also duh
Step 2: Put a Hole in 'da Handle
Basically drill or cut a hole at the end of the handle big enough to let the stones in the concrete and the rebar through. The reason the hole is here is cause it is hardly noticeable and basically helps the bat look....er.... regular I guess.
Step 3: Fill It Up!
This may require a lot of elbow grease. Stones can get clogged up so be patient and try your best to force them through.
1. Shove the concrete wire down in... as much as you possibly can. Try your best to shove the wire down past the handle which will make it easier to get any stones through the handle.
2. Mix the concrete. Should be somewhat thin. Say the consistency of your cocoa puffs after being left out all day. Just some runny mush. The consistency of fresh cow crap maybe?
3.Fill the bat. A funnel is really helpful for getting the concrete in the bat. A thin metal rod is helpful when trying to stuff some clogs through the handle.
4. Once the bat is full, push/hammer the steel rod (should be about an inch less than the length of the bat) into the bat.
5. Hang it up to harden.
