Introduction: The Ultimate Gift of Self Defense; Aluminium Bat

About: Own my own business

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...

    This is nasty. I like it.

    The carving of the grim reaper is fantastic.

    OMG, that is simply savage! I want one, oh yeah!

    Genius! So cool! Love that it is all aluminum and light weight so that even a girl like me can smash some skulls...lol.

    Neat way of securing the nails on! Love the all metal look, and the wall mount is really cool as well!

    Awesome apocalypse weapon. Melee weapons never run out of ammo.
