Christmas is over, now it is time for me to work on a few winter projects. I have to get some tractors and implements ready for the garden. I have a sleeve hitch cultivator that I will be using, but I want to build something with my new welder. I also need to learn to weld, but that is a different discussion.
I have lots of hand hoes, and my favorite is a stirrup hoe. Here is a picture of conventional hoes on the right, and a stirrup hoe on the left.
I want to build a cultivator with a few stirrups. I am sure I can do that with scraps, maybe bending and sharpening junk lawn mower blades.
Here is a picture I found of a cultivator on an Allis Chalmers G. I don't know if it is a factory cultivator or a home built. These are L shaped instead of U shaped.
I know I could buy wide, flat sweeps and adapt them to my Brinly Hardy cultivator, but I want to build this cheaply.
Any thoughts? What am I overlooking?
