    Here's a tip for cutting small cylindrical parts too short to hold in the saw:

    Put a piece of opposing channel on either side and it will hold tight. My quick attach pins were a little too long and my grapple was lacking about an inch of width to allow me to just drill a hole for them and fillet weld them into place on either side.

    I got cut short by the weather so I worked on my hydraulic fittings and mounting hardware. I managed to get the top jaw painted though. I'll get some pictures soon. I'm going to draw the diverter valve bracket in 3d tomorrow.

    Paint is finished! I hope to have some pictures up tomorrow of the new brackets. I'll take it off of the drying hangers around Wednesday once the paint has hardened.

    There's something wrong with the color balance on your camera - these sure don't look orange in the pics

    Nice job! Nobody regrets getting a grapple...or in your case making one.

    I know! I'm addicted! It's funny because I ride honda and yamaha bikes and I've always made fun of Harley guys and their color coordinated undies. :-)
