Anyone make, or know someone that makes a nice BAYO display rack?
I have enough now that I would like to show them off a little.

Thought about it since yer first post some.
Depends on how you wish to display:
Vertical, horiz., w, w/o scabbards, wood, plastic, steel, what-have-you?
I'm thinking a [slightly slanted/tilted] vertical design, w/the blades set at a 45* bevel to the viewer. Makes better use of space available; shows more that the usual frontal view.
A lot depends on personal tastes.
I can "see" it....can you? :D

Here's an acrylic stand I made that holds 6 L1A1 type bayonets.
It would also work for the No. 5, and P07 type bayonets although it's suited for the short 8 in L1A1/C1 types.
Here's a wooden stand I messed around with that holds 15 FAL TYPE C bayonets.

Yea thats the ideas I was tossing around Deltaten:
Just gotta get something together.
NZ that is the PIC that gave me the idea.
I could not find the POST where you showed that before?
Did you do the ACRYLIC Stand yourself?

I designed the stand using 4.5 mm Acrylic, then cut it out and filed it to shape then took it to a plastics manufacturer and got them to bend it and flame the edges for me.
Originally It was for the 6 versions of Australian L1A1 bayonets but now I have a few more and really do need to get another one made but done in the opposite direction so the handles are on the right (because of the sectionalised bayonet).
I've been meaning to get a price to have a stand made but haven't managed to get around to it. It's a 'one day job' (one day I'll get around to it).
The good thing about the design is it can be made as tall or short as needed and the width can vary too without much of a change in the design.
I guess if the slots were simplified and 'rounded' at the ends then they could be done with a router to speed things up. Like with anything that is manufactured the cost will be dependant on the number made. I do know of a place that could make them for me...... is it worth it?
The pic was posted in one of SLR5000's topics about bayonets for sale.
