Daniel, I've been wondering how some rolling blocks would work? Then you are not dragging the part across a stationary area. Could set things up to do round stock that way.

Had some time today and thought I would finish up the 3-point arms I bent here. These should work very well for the FF20. 5/8" X 1-1/2" bar stock. I made them 1" longer than stock as I had issues last plow day with the top link being too long on the 12" plow. They just need to be cleaned up and painted.

I can make the arms for sure. I'm trying to figure out how to make the lift links easier to adjust.
