Ok, I think it's safe to say that ~I~ have the silliest stake I've seen in lonnng time. :D

I made this stake for the Rev Party in Wildwood this past weeekend. It was very hard to keep this one under wraps. Lol!!!

for the time being im stuck with a bright yellow tent stake. its molded plastic ooo. :kid_brooding:
at least it has a hook built into it so i dont have to worry about my lines sliding off. (thats happened to me before with an aluminum tent stake that was a straight shaft)

OK , since I have not made a post to the official kite stake thread until now, here it is:

100_0835.jpg

This is a example of the Marble Stakes I make in my home workshop in my spare time. The stakes are made from 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum, 304 stainless steel rods, polished to a near chrome finish, and a large golf ball size glass marble. I also make the holsters and will soon have rubber duck stakes as well. These make great gifts for the discerning flier in your family, they are a very unique kite stake. Photos do them no justice, I keep hearing how much better they look in person. I have many colors of marbles available to me, I can always send a picture to you for approval before you buy. I am currently working on getting my stakes in some kite shops, hopefully very soon!

Ahhhhh..the trusty screwdriver.
I still have a couple in my old dual line bag. They've prolly been in that bag a good 12-15 years at the least.

If you like, I have a stake (it's from the Rev Clinic... sorry Brad). It's pink, you could spray paint it and I'd probably epoxy the ball on better, but it does work... no sleeve for it, either. If you're interested in it, PM with your address and I'll send it to you. I don't use it at all, so it's just taking up space in my bag/ car and TRUST ME, space in my car is a very valuable commodity!

had a chance to fly yesterday & the kite stake family asked to hang out also...as you can see, melanie forgot to dress before leaving the house...been playing around with joes & barbies as kite stakes...the joes have quite the wardrobe & accessories, but most of the barbies in the thrift shops are sold naked...will try the barbies with legs soon...amazing what can be done with a drill & hot glue gun...on the revolver cylinder, made dummy rounds, de-activated primer, no powder, so no worries...used a screwdriver for years, golfball stakes easy to make...we have found a little surveyors tape helps to keep the field wanderers from wandering through our setup...nothing patented, feel free to play with designs...happy flying...g
