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.
Any Machinists Out There?

Jeff if this link works, I think this is what you want.
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 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.
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.

What are the diameters of the different sizes?
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.

would you want something like this but in a cat 1 and 0
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.
