The most expensive parts were the chains. Right at 50 bucks apeice for the chain.
I had/found for free/ the poles so all I had to buy was the Plywood/chains/angle irons/dowell rods/wireties and concrete mix for the holes. I would say I have less than 80 bucks apeice in the three.
They work really well and are really sturdy.
I like this design! How sturdy are those dowels though? How likely are they to break after taking repeated hits from discs?
