Looking for a machinist that has tools at home to do the work.  Willing to pay depending on what this job might cost.  Here's the job.

 

I have a 5 foot cat. 1 rear blade that I use around the property.  I used to use this blade on my cat. 0 tractors as that's all I had.  Now I have a tractor with cat. 1 three point so I put those pins back on it.  The cat. 1 pins go to the outside of the A frame while the cat. 0 pins went to the inside.  Know where this is going yet?  I have designed a pin that I can install on the blade that allows me to use the blade on any tractor I have.  It's simply a long pin, cat. 1 on one end and cat. 0 on the other.  I'm looking to get two of these made to try and see how this works.  Never seen anyone else do this but that's not saying it's not out there.  Been a while since I looked at the drawings but they are probably complete enough for pricing.  I have no idea what material is used to make these pins but perhaps you do.  Would anyone be interested in trying this?  I think it's besy for someone who has the machines at home rather than work.  Don't want anyone getting in trouble.

You mean like these?

I'm thinking those are a bit on the high priced side.  Bet you can find them for a lot less.

Son-of-a-gun, they do exist.  I honestly thought I had something there.  So much so that I never even went out and researched them.  I just didn't think there would be enough need to warrant production.  Thanks OB!

Yes, I have seen those, but never the cat. 1/0 before.  Maybe the guy that OB found actually made a few to sell and to gage response.

Since they aren't making that much Cat 0 stuff anymore, they may be hard to find.
