DON'T have them written down go to gander mt. look @ theirs it's PVC run to LOWES while it's still fresh in your mind & get the PVC. the paper you can get from any auto parts store the sells paint.

bulding a paper tuning frame its very easy. atually, all you need is a frame.

you need: 4 T shaped pieces of pvc
2 pvc elbows
10 pvc pipes


first, put a pipe holding the 2 elbows together.
then, put a pipe in the other end of the elbows.
grab 2 Ts and put them in the end of that pipes.
put another pipe holding the 2 Ts together. (now you have a square frame)
NOTE: the T must have a free end pointing downards.

now, put another 2 pipes in the ends of the Ts.
now grab the other 2 T and put them in the end, with the free ends pointing to the front and back.
finally, put the other 4 pipes in the 4 free ends of the Ts. this will make it stable so it wont fall.

clear as mud, right?? :D

I built mine out of 2x4's and I use a staple gun to hold the paper on . . . but those other designs above are a lot slicker.

If one can hang the paper from the roof, all that is needed are 2 arrows, thread and paper...

Dth that picture looks like the one I just built a couple weeks ago.Pvc is the way to go if you dont glue the base and frame to each other it makes it easy to store.

I hang mine in my basement and hang it from the floor joists. I use an old storm window frame with paper clamps to hold the tractor feed type computer paper. Works great !

How is the paper held in place? Is is passing through the pvc pipe? I was planning on building one of these, but cannot decide best how to hold the paper tight. Can you show a couple of close up pics of the paper held in place?

Thanks

Cut a piece of PVC to fit and drill and bolt.

I built mine from PVC pipe as others have described so that it can be taken down for storage.

To hold the paper, I bought a roll of magnetic stripping from a craft store and glued that on the top and bottom of the frame. Makes it easy to change paper quickly and is good enough to hold it snug.

I built one like the 1st picture. glued everything but one of the elbows on the top and the 2 feet. I pull the one unglued end out and slide a roll of freezer paper over it then press the elbow back in place. I then just use a spring loaded plastic clamp on the top pipe over the roll and one on the middle pipe holding the paper. thats the simplest and cheapest I could come up with.

What are the best sources for THIN paper on rolls? I have some paper that I got at Lowes but it is like cardboard and doesn't show the suttle things.

What I have on my frame is 18" freezer paper that is wax coated on one side. It is stiff enough to give good definition without restricting the tear. I tried auto body masking paper and it works good also but the tears on the freezer paper are more defined.

;) I get my paper at an auto body suppy store. It's the paper they use for masking a car for painting. It's the best I've found.

Hope these pics help. Just to let you know, this cost less than $20 to build. Most of the cost was the fusion spray paint which cost $7.00.

I cut the bottom out of a cardboard box and use masking tape to fasten computer paper over the opening. Fold it back up when im done and can take it anywhere. Saw it on a video.
