WFTF Target Testers - 12FPE

Post by jgoodz » Mon Oct 30, 2017 11:54 am

I will be looking into 3D printing off some of the WFTF certified target checkers, I have had a few people ask about this now and I am in the middle of testing to see how long they will take to make and what the cost will be to produce them. I have to source some of the other components as well, determine shipping cost and assembly, testing and calibrating. I am not sure at this point, but I am guessing they will end up somewhere around the $60 mark, they are $76.18+UKshipping to buy from Brian, but you cannot buy them as they are out of stock and priority of sale is being given to WFTF certified marshalls until they are dispersed worldwide.

Please let me know if you are interested so I can gauge how many of them I will need, so far I believe I have;
Tom P - x1
Dean L - x1
Sean M - x2
Tim M - x1
Ray A - x1
Geoff M - x1
George D - x1
George H - x1
Jeff H - x1

***The first batch of 10 is now sold out, hope to have them ready within 3-4weeks, final price is $65+shipping***

Hi Joel,
Definitely 2 for our club.
I also put a post on yellow and sent out an email to a couple of MD's that I thought would be interested.

I have done the testing and have a working prototype in hand and I have ordered enough material to make a batch of 10 testers, this leaves 2 remaining as of right now. I can make more based on demand, but it is cheaper to bigger batches of them.

After going over the prices of everything I will be able to do them for $65 each+shipping

Colours in the pictures below are just for testing, the production units will be the same colour scheme as the original; black, red, silver.

That looks great Joel. I think I will be testing all of our targets right on the course before every match. Should avoid some problems before the match even starts. Some targets work fine sitting on a nice level floor, but things can change when they are fastened down and may not be completely level.

Thanks Tim and yeah it should hopefully make things easier for a lot of folks to have a standardized tester on hand, avoid the classic "finger poke" test :lol:
