To bad they couldn't implement a shock system that doesn't allow it to plow into the ground when the other kid jumps off .
I think they outlawed them here , as I've never seen them for years ?

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Rember when your 'friends' would pile on the other end so you were stuck way up in the air and couldn't get off?
No?! You mean it was just my friends that did it to me?

I built this design for my boys a few years ago. It works well. I used treared Lumber without painting or stain. The arms have twisted pretty bad so one boy leans left the other leans right.

We called that a "see saw". I think I am right.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.
