This is my new Mike Landrich 16lb Light Hammer next to my 12lb shot for size comparison.
I am very happy with the quality, the customer service, and the price.
It is a pleasure throwing this Light Hammer!
Thanks again to Mike Landrich. I will be a repeat customer for sure.
This is the great triangle handle that my buddy Jason made for me a few weeks ago. Attached to a homemade HWFD.
Putting that handle on this cruddy stack of plates is like putting a Ferrari steering wheel on a Yugo.
If you are looking for plans on how to create a pretty “stone” for Highland Games training, this is not the place for you. Run away!
But if you’re not very handy or creative, but have lots of loose small weight plates and rolls of duct tape burning a hole in your garage, then this is the place for you!
I used four 5lb standard (1″ hole for the bar) plates for the “core” of my 28lb Glob. This isn’t rocket science folks. Duct taped them together very tightly.
I used miscellaneous pieces of bent steel and even threw in a brass door hinge, because I wasn’t using it and it had been sitting in my garage for years. I used pieces of cut foam to attempt to mold it into some semblance of a round shape.
I used enough duct tape to lift a ’57 Chevy to “tie” it all together. It has taken the pounding of being thrown pretty well. It is on the slick side when it gets slightly damp though.
May 27th was my birthday. I’m now a year away from the big 4 – 0. And I actually look forward to that milestone birthday. Most people dread it for some reason.
I worked a 12-hour shift, but when I got home I did a half dozen braemar throws with my 15lb stone in the yard. None of the throws were particularly good. But it did feel good to get a bit of throwing in anyway.
