My homemade tandem disks.
Posted February 14, 2011 - 10:02 PM
The brinly is 32 inches wide while the sears is 29. I had to add a piece of 2 inch angle on each side of the sears. I did not have anything smaller and was running short on time. The brinly has more room for adjustment outward for the disk, where as the Sears is fixed and only the angle can be set. So I thought it would be better to go a little bigger on the sears. Everything squared up well at 41 1/4 inches when i crossed taped the corners. I still have some adjustments to make to get all the disks lined up.
My weights are a crankshaft out of some inline 6 cyl i inherited with the house and a piece of 6 inch I beam. The Massey lifts it without any problems but she will pull the front tires now :laughingteeth:

Anybody got any advice on what to watch out for when trying to align the two sets of disks? They are square but the disks need to be setup.
