    Little more done today
    Cut out the clevis hitch parts and drilled the holes for the pins. Kinda sorta have the IMatch hitch worked out, have to finish the top and straighten one of the horizontal pieces that is out of line.

    This is the cordless drill used to drill the holes in the half inch plate, worked well enough and I just wanted to see if it could do it. I used a cnc bit to make a 1/8" pilot hole after center punching. Then proceeded with the holesaw pictured, still in good shape and the battery too.

    Will try to finish and paint it tomorrow.

    Looks good! Can't wait to see some action pictures of it. I really like your use of the box tubing for the sides!

    Catdozer,
    As long as it is easy to clean the rocks off of was my goal.



    Not sure if the x749 can handle the plane and the IMatch both but will soon find out.

    Even if it can't handle both I want the landplane to be compatible anyway.
    Plan to take it off the truck bed in the morning and get it finished.

    Is coming along really nice! I'm sure I won't ever be able to make a copy as nice as yours now. Can't wait to see some action pics as well.

    Thanks but I betcha could. I haven't even used my chopsaw, mig or drill press yet but it would have been a lot neater. Really didn't wan't to listen to the chopsaw noise. This has been an exercise in simplicity, trying to get by with as few tools as I can so others may feel they can do it too. My shop is full of materials for the next customers kitchen project. Afraid of sparks so decided to do this outside. So far this is stick welded, using the cutting torch, saw horses and a few simple hand tools.

    Okay just about finished in time for lunch.

    Afterwards going to do some trimming and clean up the welds (I am an amateur, that should be obvious) as best I can. I will try it out before painting it today. Will have it powdercoated after I have used it a few weeks.

    Here it is mounted to the 820 which can lift it high enough to work on.

    Steve, looks great. One question though, what is the tab for on the outside of the runner on the right side?

    The tab is for attaching the ground lead while welding it is just tacked on.


    As for the name I will use it in the business, lots of people including competitors look at my stuff. So I think I will put some deere stickers on it to confuse them. Have to get some new hood decals for the 820 and will pick out something appropriate.
