...Essays/ Field Armour Stand
I love having an armour stand at Pennsic. The armour takes up less space and it airs out between battles. BUT, I have very limited space in my vehicle...

I had this idea driving home the other day:



Field Armour Stand




The core of the stand is what makes it, well, stand. I took a 4' piece of rebar and 2 eye-lags (these things) set in a 2x4. The 2x4 just stands on the ground.





Then, drilled a hole for a cross pipe (shoulders) and built a helmet friendly perch.





Add the cross pipe. Now the big Q. Will it stand?





Oh yeah!

Thorvaldr Skegglauss noted that if you have a harness that has legs, just add a 2nd cross pipe to strap the legs to "and voila!"
