    Is there a really cheap ball tosser somewhere out there? Just looking for a plastic thing that automatically tosses the balls over the net.

    I tried to build one. I disassembled my electric weedwacker and used the motor. My invention sent the balls whizzing out of the barrel at a blistering 20 mph!!! Then my wife got mad when she saw the weedwacker lying in the garage in 50 pieces, so I abandoned my idea and reassembled the weed-eater. Gotta keep the wife happy!

    As for building a ball feeder, I think 2 motors propelling the ball would've worked much better. I occasionally find myself daydreaming about attempting such a contraption again in the future, but then reality (aka my wife) sets in.

    I think eventually I'll just build a hitting wall in the backyard. Yeah, on second thought, probably not.
