Loc on restoration

Post by vortex1 on Thu Aug 30, 2012 12:27 am

This is an old loc on spirit, I saw this stand and a mag 3 hangim in my buddy's barn and bought both of them for $10:) im thinkin it was from tha late 80's not sure. I think this stand weighs like 8 lbs, nedless to say i got my moneys worth. I didnt think to take a picture of tha before only the after. But most of the paint was gone, the seat had been ripped off, and one of the folding braces was bent slightly. so with the help of some spray paint, indusrial strength canvas and a vise, its not to pretty but it works excellent.finished product.

Did you put the expended on or is that from the factory? The original Loc-on stands had thin plywood platforms and it is scarier than all get out when your foot goes through after a few years of use.

all i did was paint it with green and black spray paint and put a seat on it. everything else is factory. I dont know exactly how old it is but its pretty old. i didnt know they made them out of plywood. I didnt do much to it but for the price its hard to beat. Smile

Looks like a public land special!,only $10, that want hurt your feelings if someone else swipes it. I will hang some cheap stand up as well and if someone else decides they want it more than me it doesnt hurt my wallet. To bad your friend didn't have 4 or 5 more.

I suggest changing out the chain for a strap if this is going to be your moblie setup. Straps are queiter & easier to work with. Gorilla makes a nice strap.

No problem bro. You got yourself a good little stand & at a heck of a price. I've been trying to find one of the original Loc-on Limit or Windwalker stands. These were sub 6lb stands. No luck yet but maybe I'll come across one someday.

Im not sure what it weighs but it doesnt weigh much, i knew id never run across a deal like that again so i boughtem without thought, and it has really turned out to be an excellent stand so far. Ive hung it in the yard a few times, seems to work well but we will know for sure when i start hunting with it. Also try flea markets,yard sales,and trade days, I like old school hunting stuff and places like these are the way to go. Good luck. Smile
