D-Rings Added To The Bucket ,,, With A "Twist" !!

I added D-Rings to my other loader,, they were great when I used rope and a bowline knot,, BUT, when using chain,, the hook would release off the chain incredibly easy. This time,, when adding the D-rings, I decided to do something different. The D-ring itself was added as usual,, The "TWIST" was,, when I added the hooks. Towards the center I added two weld-on hooks,, but, at an angle (actually a 45 degree angle)... D-Rings Added To The Bucket ,,, With A "Twist ..read more

My Dad is an old school Arc Welder and loves the, what I've heard him refer to as "All State 275" rods. We used the last of his stash to fix the hay rake during the recent hay season and I'd like to get him more for Fathers Day. However, I'm missing something. I've searched the interweb over for All State 275 and cant find what I'm looking for. Does this ring a bell to anyone? Can you tell me what and where I can find these Arc rods ..read more

Cruise Control Replacement Handle for J.D. 455 Mower

The plastic cruise control handle for my 1998 455 mower has been broken for many years. I have been applying a lot of lawn chemicals with a towed sprayer recently and realized that being able to set a fixed slow travel speed would probably be useful. I think the plastic handle is still available, but kind of expensive for what it is, and decided to build one (TIG weld) out of 3/4" square tubing and a little scrap 1/8" steel plate (2.5" wide x 1.8" deep). It attaches to the pull rod with... Cruise Control Replacement Handle for J.D. 455 Mower ..read more

I bought this cat zero box blade for like $150 or something, Can I just weld on this Cat 1 drawbar, and I need something ridgid for the top link. I have the cat zero top link there, but I don't know that they are supposed to go together. the flanges the pins are in are the exact same width as the ears above, so I can't see the two peices working together as a cat 0 hitch. Maybe there is a reason it was so cheep ..read more

I’m going out on a limb and throwing together a couple skis for my box blade to see how it does on my driveway. We used to use them building roads back in the day and I want to see if I can do that with a box blade. This is experimental, and if it doesn’t do squat, I’ll unbolt them and move on. I got the scrap steel laying around and a rainy day so let’s see what I can get myself into this time Went out to my ever growing scrap heap and had a look see [ATTACH type="full"...

Just an FYI more than anything. I went to AirGas to buy a rose bud torch tip. I have a Harris torch body. The Miller brand was $220 DOLLARS! So I passed on it. I googled it and found one on Scamazon for $32 bucks. Perfect for my model of torch and works great. So if you need one and don’t mind buying Chineseum, there are alternatives out there ..read more

Holiday Hay Fork Project I think I Needed

Custom bailing is gaining traction around here and large squares are the hot-ness (not really news for people who live in around hay country). What happens when you just can't get that last couple of bales on the trailer/wagon to ship home. You call me and I will buy it right out of the field. I take my 4044M, with my new awesome hay fork, hook up my wagon, and go get it. I kept the tines red, you know, since it was Christmas (and I didn't want to paint them)! I used the manure fork design... Holiday Hay Fork Project I think I Needed ..read more
