    I believe that we need to hear from Travis or Ted from ETA.

    Who do they want? A "pro"? A DIY? Or a beginner that has little to no experience.

    My opinion; Nothing good will come of bickering over who should or should not build and post with pictures this attachment.

    Waiting for direction before I nominate!

    Thanks

    I agree, it would be nice to hear from Travis or Ted on what exactly they are looking for as a trial.

    From the examples of craftsmanship I have seen from some of the members on here, they could make a great implement even if they started by rolling their own steel, and making it all from scratch. While I know the finished project would be perfect, I wonder it it would be the best way to test the kits?

    On the other hand we dont want someone such as myself, "I will guaranteeee it is stout, but it is gonna be butt ugly and dont need no stinkin paint"

    Fortunately we have time for everyone to give their input as hopefully will also the folks at EA and with all those sharp minds focusing on something no doubt it will be a success. As to bickering, this isnt friendly politics so I am sure all will be mellow. I really like the way Aaron suggested that you can vote for as many candidates as you want when you vote, I think it will help balance things out.

    That is why I would like to see a kit with the surface prep work already done. Weld it up, clean it up and paint it up. I often don't paint because it would take me much longer to prep it than it took me to assemble it (using wire wheels, flap wheels etc.). Maybe some day I will have a sandblaster

    Brin we need to fix that..If I can weld YOU can weld, in fact anyone can do it.! We need to help get you a welder. Let me tell you, it is pretty darn enjoyable to "glue" a couple of pieces of steel together with a welder. You ARE missing out.

    I am going to nominate myself. I am a decent welder. I have a Snap on MM140SL MIG welder and a TIG conversion for it. I also have a Lincoln stick welder and a set oxy acetylene torches. I have other fabricating tools like a chop saw, metal cutting band saw, bench grinder, hand grinders, etc. I have a assortment of hand tools.

    Here are some of my projects.

    Harbor Freight QH modification- http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/a...-problems.html
    My L4240 thread, mainly the hooks on the bucket- http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/kubota-owning-operating/254959-l4240-upgrades.html
    My BX2360 thread, mainly the tie downs- http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/k...-upgrades.html

    I am just your average hard working American. I think it would be a honor to get to build the first build it yourself attachment kit from Everything Attachments. When I do make something I always try my hardest to give it a factory appearance.

    The steering wheel is in your hands guys. It wouldn't be fair for us to leave this up to you and then start making rules and guidelines. We already make the assembly process as simple as possible for our guys with indexing tabs for fitment but the necessary skills and tools already discussed will be needed.

    Who ever the winner is. Are they receiving it for free? Would this be possible for TBN only that we could purchase a kit and also give feedback?

    I don't recall for sure, but didn't ETA mention giving out a couple kits? Maybe that would solve this huge dilema... one for the "very experienced" and one for the "average joe" maybe even one for a beginner. If not, whoever the winner is should choose something that is within their abilities- we all know what they are, but may not always be willing to admit.

    I think this should go to someone in the average joe to expert range. But not a beginner. After all, this kit most likely isnt marketed towards beginners. And it is doubtful that a beginner would have any desire to take something like this on as a first project.

    I think it is marketed for someone who likes fabrication and likes building their own stuff, but doesnt necessarily have the equipment to form some of the pieces. Like the laser, roller, brake, etc.
