Something I just threw together

A few weeks ago I was in a thrift shop and happened across a couple of old wooden baseball bats. Got me thinking....

You know, just in case zombies are real.

Now you've got to make it into a HIGH CAPACITY ASSAULT BAT!

Very nice!  But don't sell it short, in this day and age you never truly know when you'll need to tenderize a side of mastodon.

You need another spike sticking straight out from the end!

Looks like something stolen from Fallout, I like it. Wink

That was in the original plans, but I don't have a way to press the threads into the end of the bat.  The wood of the bat is too hard to screw the threads in, so I used a vice to press them in.

streaker, are they stainless steel?  You don't want to risk tetanus.

Clamp the spike in a vise, and use a strap-wrench on the bat to thread it in? Maybe just make the hole a little bigger? Come on, you know you NEED that extra spike!

If I'm swingin' it, tetanus is not the infection I'm worried about.

But to answer, no they're not SS, I couldn't find SS for the price I was willing to pay to build this thing.  Plus, SS would have been more difficult to sharpen to a point with just a bench grinder.

The spikes aren't threaded directly into the bat.  When I have a chance I'll post a picture of how they're actually held in.  Right now I can't get out to the garage to get a picture.  Once you see that, you'll understand.
