nice job. glad to see its a little smaller so it doesn't overload the tractor, knowing it will be for dirt, gravel, etc    Tom

Looks good, what did you make the teeth out of?

I've been wanting teeth on my loader bucket for a long time, I always thought they would be handy!

It's made from 1/4" plate steel.

Looks like it will bite in pretty good.  Typically you would use hardened steel for teeth on a bucket. You'll have to try it and see if it holds up.

I'm afraid you'll be bending these teeth very fast if digging anything but soft ground.  And once even one gets bent, your digging will get very difficult.  Not trying to be negative at all, but I've dealt with 1/4" plate a lot, and it's not that strong for this application.  Hope I end up wrong though.

Hmmm. You are probably right. I may have to rethink that. I guess I should have made teeth from square tube with angles cut and welded into them.

Thank you all for your thoughts. I am going to take this back to the drawing board and show you all version 2.0 in a little while.
