Making your own turning Point field

So recently I have started to make plans for making my own personal field at my house. This field isn’t the same as the original but its an impression of the field you would buy but at much less of the cost assuming you have the tools to do it. (Drill and saw and a drill bit) So im experimenting right now with it to see if it will result in almost the same as an original and was wondering if anyone else would want the plans/ instructions on how to build yourself one.


Nice. I don’t want the instructions.


That is really cool! I can guess this took a large amount of effort, but when you consider the amount of money required to buy the entire field kit I can say it’s worth the time and effort most probably. I would be more than happy to see the plans and instructions.

Your opinion is yours, and I understand that it is your opinion. But in my opinion that comment seems to portray a disrespectful and arrogant attitude considering the amount of effort he put into something and posting it to the internet. But, like all people, I may be wrong. Was it your intention to make it sound like what I described, or am I wrong about what I said?

I’m sorry. I’m surrounded by good people and believe I make good decisions, but I’m still a human being. I can be wrong. I didn’t mean to insult anyone’s efforts and certainly didn’t intend to come off as disrespectful or arrogant. It won’t happen again. I love everyone. I believe in people.



You’ve inspired me.
How similar are you trying to make it to the actual flags? Will it have say the indents, and require the same amount of force to change? I’m assuming not because it seems to be a wood-working project, but I’m definitely going to give this a shot.

I assume when you say indents you mean the little nob thing thats supposed to keep the flags in place, as for that ive yet to find an idea on how to put it on the flags. However I am trying to make it as similar as possible so if I find a way ill let you know. For the rest of the flag it is the same im using the same height per flag in the field cad document as well as size of the flag too. Now for the same force to push the flag I dont think I can because I cant test my launcher on a real field to compare the results of the hit but the way im doing it is to have them fairly hard to push. However for 5 dollars for a pretty decent at home testing it seems good enough for me lol, thank you

Thank you and yes it is by the way i did it and the wood I used it only costs around 5 to 6 dollars to make the one flag stand. along with that I have made two of them and actually tested it with my flywheel. Ill be posting a cad document of it with a draw up but I was wondering since I have to make one more if I should just take pictures along the process of the wood I used and explain it or make a video of all the important parts of the process, whats do you think would be better?

Thank you all for your interest as i refine some of the other aspects of the field ill keep you updated if anyone has any questions ask away.
