    If you are in a hurry RustOleum has a JD Green that is very close, Lowes sells it in my area. Buy the real stuff at the JD Dealership for $6/can.

    Looks great, very clean and professional. I think I want one now too. Great pics. Did you weld the frame yourself?

    Yes. I did the fabrication on my own. Tig welded everything. I think it is a sloppy mess for what I am capable of.

    Nice work. Did you line the inside of the steel with something?? Or do you leave the plastic scabbard on the bar??

    IE: what do you do to prevent the teeth rubbing and dulling on the inside of the metal "tube"??

    Nice saw BTW Just the right color. The tractor though..........
