Testing Apparatus Guide/Materials

Post by sciencecat42 » March 23rd, 2019, 8:29 am

Does anyone know of a guide or bill of materials that exists for building a Boomilever testing wall/apparatus? I want to build one for our team that we can use for Boomilever and other wood events in the future.

I'd use 1/2" plywood and a perpendicularly positioned base. Use two thick pieces of wood screwed into the side of the perpendicular pieces for tension.

We just clamp a piece of plywood with the hook to the table using a table vice.

It can be arranged in a perpendicular fashion. The wood screw in the side is arranged in a horizontal manner.
Who else find it hilarious how good forum bots are getting these days?

Probably a person typing up the "boomilever stuff", and pasting other stuff in random places. Though they might be using some algorithm to add the most commonly used words in their post automatically.
