I have had a bunch of these tines for some time and have been trying to figure out how to use them.Image001.jpg

I finally figured out how to use them. So, today, I cut a bunch of spacers for them.

Image002.jpg

These will be welded to an 1-1/2" angle iron. Then I will bolt a 2X2 angle over the top to keep them in place. Next I will drill another 2X2 angle for the lower part of the tine to go through. Use some imagination here folks as that hasn't been done as yet.

Image003.jpg

The spacers are 1/4" thick. The tines are .281". So by bolting another angle over them, I will "trap" them in place.

   Looks like a good project, I will keep an eye on this. I like to see how others build things.

we use those in our big wheel rakes, be careful they have a lot of spring in them.

I have around 60 of these tines and will use 37 here. I will let it just touch the ground.

That should make a nice rake Kenny.

I bet that would work great for cleaning up pine needles.

I'm spacing the tines at 1.5" apart, so I imagine it would do well for that.

Man Kenny, looks like you are working on my work bench, I think mine has more junk, err, I mean tools, on it than yours though :thumbs:

 

Is that a hub cap light under the bench? Pictures make it looks like there is a light attched to a hubcap.

Yes it tis an FF rim. But it will stay right there! I might need a spare! You might PM Littledeere and see if he has a pair to part with!

 

Got a bit more done today! The upper attachment is working real good. Now to get the rest of the metal on it for the 3-point hitch. Here's a peak into the upper piece.

I am making this 54" wide. Tine width will be 51". That's wider then the FF so should do well in that area!
