That turned out nice, good work on the fabrication. Like Daniel said, you can always make one using heavier material if needed.

That looks like it will do a nice job at breaking up soil for you. Nice looking attachment!

That's a great fabrication project and it seems to have turned out rather well! There will almost always be things you wish you'd done differently when you complete a project, but if it's functional, that's what matters until you build your next one!

It sounds like everyone agrees, the best part of making something is learning how to make it better next time.

Well, I decided to turn the garden over again. I don't think I have the plow set right yet...It seems to be at a downward angle even when I was plowing...It also seemed to pull to the left a lolt more than I would have expected...It also didn't seem to get that real curl when I was plowing. Anyhow, I will be using my "new" cultivator later today to level it out and I am hoping that works better than my plow did...

Doesn't look like it will take much to level it out with you cultivator , I've never have much luck plowing , by the time I get everything set correctly I run out of garden :lol: but it sure is fun anyway , Al
