Or how to spend $100 delivered to your door.  Got Discs and now need to determine the use of angle or tube and making clamps.

These are 16 inch discs on 22 inch shanks. If I were building this for a Gt I would have got the 14 inch discs on 16 inch shanks.

RacerX: I ordered the discs from Agri-Supply looked all over trying to find them closer. The ones I found closer were close to twice the price. The discs were $32.95 ea. and the shipping was $34.07. Service was great and they got here in 4 days. The weight was 42 lbs.
They are in NC just as you are so you should be able to get them much cheaper by saving the frt.

Kenny I may be a week or so getting everything together.
Dad has some 1 1/2 X 4 rectangle tubing, my brother says he has some 2x2 tubing, I have that heavy angle 3x3 1/2 i think.
And I have to pick up some pins etc.
My potatoes are not up yet so I have a couple -3 weeks to get it all together and build.

Larry I think he weatherman was wrong again!! It was raining hard when I left home this morning.

By the time I got to work on the NW corner of Des Moines, there was already 2 inches of slush on the ground.

In less than a mile I saw two cars in the ditch and a Caddilac with the front end knocked off in the right lane.

Just remember that a Weatherman is the only person that can be right only 30% of the time and still keep his job....

I ordered the 12" disks on 22" shanks.  Also some furrower points.  Agri Supply Co was the cheapest of anyone.  Even then the freight was as reasonable as anyone.

I think 12 or 14 inch would work very well with the Gt.

I debated what size to get--had to be big enough to do the job, but not too big to interfere with the tool bar, or overpower the tractor. 

 

I've already made a tool bar and put some cultivator points on it to use as a furrower.  I'll post pics as soon as I get a moment.

I may not get build pictures and will only be able to post pictures of the Tool Bar finished.

My 80 yr old father, is very active and always looking for ways to fill his time.

He and my retired Brother have taken over this project while I'm at work.

So it will probably be done by early next week.
