Here's a little flip disc I modeled off the King Kutter one that I built over the winter. I think the disc's and disc hanger assembly came off a Simplicity setup I bought locally from Craigslist. Got the wheels from Harbor Junk. Think I've got maybe $100 into it total. I put some 1" pipe bungs in the frame so I can fill the disc up with about 7 gallons of water for added weight if I need it. Havent had a chance to try it out yet, been raining like a dirty pig so far this Spring.


Nice disk! I am planning on building one from a brinly disk and a moving dolly.

Remove the top section of the dolly until there is one cross brace left to attach the drawbar to the frame of the dolly. Fold the flat plate down onto the frame (90 degrees to the top of standing vertical) and tack weld into place. Using the plate, bolt the disk to the flat plate over the wheels. Then add a front weight from a big tractor between the wheels to add weight to increase the cutting effect.

This should make a good disk.

the multi purpose trolley is a good idea , i also try to make things that multi tasks like the hiller tines which can furrow cut for planting potatoes as well & the 3 point tool bar for the hillers & tow hitch ,

 

the hiller tines can be used separately too in turned around & point down for ground row marking 

 

i still got some hair brained ideas to try yet myself , but  we got to have a go or we don't learn nothing 

 

I was checking out your hillers and I am going to attempt to make something similar, except for sleeve hitch instead of 3 point. I am hoping to work on it some this weekend as the weather is supposed to be great (+11 degrees Celcius). I also have an idea on turning a dump cart into a ground drive manure spreader.

the hiller tines are easy to make i just used 8" pressure pipe to cut out of ,cut 2 from opposite sides to have a pair of then just welded

 

them together then welded a  solid stock block on the back  to mount onto ,i now realise i don't need 3 though 2 is enough 3 is too close for my set up

I was only planning on doing one as a furrower (that pushes dirt to both sides), then doing one that  pushes to the left only and one that pushes to the right only. I saw your thread where you built a moldboard plow from a piece of pipe. I have an old water tank that I plan to use for this. So far this weekend I picked up 2 new tractors and some attachments, pulled my old Bolens 1054 out of the shed and got it running. I then tried it out with a tiller that I picked up today as well. I then hooked up my sleeve hitch and a Brinly cultivator, did some adjusting on the cultivator, then took it out for a test run. I was just getting everything set up to start working on the hillers when a guy drove by and spotted all the Bolens stuff in the yard. About an hour later he left, but by then it was time for supper, so I will try to work on the hillers tomorrow. I do have a picture of my home built sleeve hitch.

Here is the almost finished engine hoist trailer that I have been working on for the past 3 days. My other build had to take a momentary back seat to this, because I currently have a Van Norman #12 mill sitting in my driveway under a tarp that needs to get through a 32" doorway to my shop. I still have to do all the welds. Right now, it is only tacked together, but it did hold up my weight when attached to a tractor and it did lift a little boulder in the back yard. As for when I will do the welding, I want to stick weld it for cost effectiveness, unfortunately I don't like stick welding inside and it has been to cold and wet here to weld outside.

Great thinking. I bought a brand new one at a garage sale 10or 12 years ago. He lost the legs. Maybe I will steal your idea.

that's a really good idea for the engine hoist & will make it more stable when lifting an engine as it carn't tip up with engine weight ,

 

but curious about lifting an engine out of a engine bay as the legs won't go under the vehicle far enough ?

I'm not sure if wheel weights count as an attachment or not, but here are a pair that I am just putting the finishing touches on. They started out life as the front brake rotors on the truck (98 GMC K2500) . These were destined for the scrap yard, but when I picked one up. I thought "that is one heavy brake rotor" and then the light bulb went off. I had a pair of turf tires on rims close by, so I tried them for fit and ... I don't think you could get a better fit with an improvised weight. They measure just under 12.5" in diameter and weighed 18lbs each before adding the concrete and the pipes for the mounting bolts. Finished weight is 24 lbs each, should be very close to 25 with mounting hardware. Total cost on these is under $30 Canadian for the pair, or about $1.75 US with the current value of our dollar (LOL).
