I'm looking for someone who might want to do a little side job.  I would pay or course.  What I am looking at is a design for a category 1/0 pin.  Cat. 1 on one side and cat. 0 on the other.  I have a rough sketch done and can do the finished drawing for you to go by.  I'm doing this because the tractor I just bought has a cat. 1 hitch and the other one that I plan to keep has cat. 0.  I have a rear blade that I would like to be able to put on both of them.  I could use bushings but I think this would be a better overall solution.  I've seen these pins at TSC that take you from cat. 3/2 and cat. 2/1 but the cat. 0 seems to get no love.  If anyone has the talent and machines to do this, contact me and we'll take it from there.  Thanks.

You would almost want a cat 0 with male threaded and a cat 1 with female threads and screw them together. Thru the "ear" mount on the back blade.

No, that's not what I have in mind.  I will post something tomorrow.  The concept drawing is on another computer.  I haven't see anything like what I'm talking about.

You're on the right track Alan.  This would be all one peice though.  I think it would be stronger that way.  Picture a regular cat. 1 pin installed on a rear blade.  The pin is on the outside, right?  Now when I use the blade on a cat. 0 tractor, the pins have to point in, so the machined cat. 0 pin portion would be on the other end.  The whole thing fastens to the blade as a cat. 1 pin would.

Well that's the bushing and, you're right, I could go that route.  I just wanted to try something a little more solid and not have to worry about bushings.

Then how about turning it into a welding project?  Cut a Cat 1 pin and weld it to a Cat 0 pin, or the other way around.

Cat 1 appears to be 7/8" and cat. 0 is around 5/8".  It is enough to thread the larger dia. and slide the nut over.  Should work out quite well.

So here is a rough idea of what I'm trying to accomplish.  I think I have enough general information shown that someone could tell me if they can do this or not.  I think it would work and I know if would suit my situation perfectly.  Who knows, we may even start something here.

YES!  That's exactly it!  See the post I just put up with my sketch.  Now I know they have larger ones anyway.  Cat. 0 doesn't get a whole lot of respect anymore.  Thanks!  I'll have to search that site and see what I can find.
