Hi Guys, it's a long shot but i am asking for help here.

I have 30  working &15 more for spares)  Speith International Trap target throwers that are in need of a little T.L.C.

There are two grippers that hold the target in the stack while waiting for next drop.

Then the Throwing arm has a channeled pc running the length of the arm.

you can see in the picture attached.

I am looking for replacements, or a Contact i can talk to to get Spares.

believe it or not the machines were built in 1976/7 for the 1978 Commonwealth Games here in Edmonton AB, CA.

Lasted well but have perished beyond consistent use now.

thanks for reading and maybe helping an Ex-Pat out here, Don't want to get thrown to the Bears for failing to deliver.

appreciate any help.

Martin.

All of that went completely over my head.

Anyway, what do those clay pigeon thingies that you shoot taste like ?

tried Speith, no response on two occasions, wont give a third strike.

there's an idea on 3D printing, 

material is Urethane not rubber.

had a response from Howell trap USA, will see how that pans out.

thanks for the responses, the serious ones anyway.  didn't think it would be an easy fix.

You can get cast urethane blocks of varying hardness in all sorts of dimensions that can be machined pretty easily.  Maybe worth geting the best examples of the throwing arm buffers and clay grippers to dimension them and get a local fab shop or even a machining enthusaist to mill them for you. Try a few different types of urethane to see what works best.

Try these people, they are local to you https://redwoodplastics.com/contact

TPU may be suitable and the rigidity can be altered by changing the parameters of the print; infill, wall thickness etc
