Here is one of my latest finds/projects. I bought this double disc last fall. Both sections are built by Brinly but the front section was sold as a Craftsman disc. I am not sure just what I am going to do with these, leave them as is, make a Cat. 1 three point disc out of them or add wheels and a rope lift system to them and make a wheeled transport disc. I am leaning towards making them into a wheeled transport disc as that would be something kind of different to have at our plow days and most any of the garden tractors there should be able to pull it.
I am going to put in a garden this spring so I am going to try them out just as they are now and see what kind of job they do. I promise pictures of the disc getting dirty.

I've being looking myself for something like that, so far no luck.
It would be nice to see a wheel lift set up on them.
Good luck and keep us posted.

That's a nice set of discs. You will like the double set, they work well. Dad, member nyabc, has two sets of them that do well for him. Just add some weight. I'd like to see the wheel modification.

Here's just a suggestion , go with the transport style ,then you can pull it with any tractor not just a cat o 3pt. I took a cat o 3pt brinly and stretched it , put bag truck tires on and used the lift segment off of a bolens. it cuts much better than my free pivoting style like you have now. When I get the time later this spring i'm going to put wings on mine from another 3pt disc i got from Josh and i got a linear actuator to replace the manual lift. This will make it a little wider than my Case 446 with the duals on.
As an add on project I finally got my third David bradley cultimulcher, I going to wing the three and add transport wheels to pull it behind the disc. I think it'll make the Case grunt
