SAND SCOOP

SAND SCOOP
« on: April 05, 2016, 09:05:13 AM »
 I had to go to California to deal with some personal matters, when I got there I realized that I had left my sand scoop at home .  :( so I went to a local feed store and bought a two quart plastic feed scoop, took it to my brothers house,and with the biggest drill bit that he had drill holes in the bottom and sides . it worked pretty darn good . still had to bend down to get the target ,but not bad in a pinch.

Good idea in a pinch, I will bet it did work good and inexpensive to huh? I mite pick one up for an extra also.

 det2 way to go man, was worth it by fare. Mine is almost ready I just have to get some rivets to put it together.  It should work pretty well, I like it and it only costs me about $10.00 for materials (MAP gas and aluminum rods mostly).

I have to go somewhere where the water is a little lower to test it but the upcoming day's look great for getting out there and trying it out. Will have to wait a couple days for my back to feel better but when it does, look out sand. digg
