does anybody have plans for a simple diy ringer that doesn't need welding?

P.S. 10/4/14 - I have no financial interest in this device. I thought we were talking about dispatching rabbits via a cervical dislocation method like the rabbit wringer since, in this thread, I've seen talk of the broomstick method, homemade welded and wooden wringers, etc. I thought that was the topic, and not an ad for a name brand product. I was just trying to share information like others have shared with me over the years... something I have always appreciated about rabbit owners. I apologize if I broke a rule of offended anyone. :|


This wasn't an ad, it was created BEFORE there was a Hopper Popper, and I was demonstrating the use of the Wringer, since it was the only one available. Yes, the Hopper Popper is less expensive and works just as well, I have both actually! :)

Tammy, I'm sorry, but it has NEVER taken more than 12 weeks at the longest. Rabbit Wringer is shipping 3-5 weeks (as stated in the description of the product in the PayPal shopping cart). You said theirs is easier. I cannot see how that can be. Ours is bigger, and adjustable, also the inline design of the rod and shelf makes it even smoother. Our new diy kit will be ready soon, maybe a week or two. Tooling took longer than expected. It will do rabbits and poultry.

I've been wondering about that kit. Could it do very small poultry as well, like say...quail?

Zass, Yep it should since the smallest part of the opening is 3/8". Does pigeons just fine. We also have the Poultry Wringer which is specifically for chickens, ducks and smaller bird. I am redesigning it and it will look like the current full size Wringer, just smaller.

Hi guys,
I just found this:

It seems pretty good for the job. Any ideas?
What do you think?

That DIY kit has been available for months. It's on our RabbitWringer website and on eBay with one of our new E-Z Skinners (Skinning Gambrel)..The Gambrel is only available on our eBay account at this time.

Thank you for the link. I followed it and took a look. I noticed that Bare Nekkid Hopper Popper Combo for only $25. I see it needs to be painted, but other than that is there any real difference between it and the more expensive versions?
