Does anyone have detailed plans or know where I can get plans to build a teeter totter for full size and garden tractors?

Thanks Don.

I have a very heavy duty one that will be coming out of storage in about a week (back permitting)
It isn't wide enough to run a full size tractor over, but it's seen some 300 series JD stuff without issue

I'm actually in the process of drawing up plans now Don. Just need to add some final dimensions to it, and we should be ready to get started. I'll let you know how they turn out and when complete. 

 

On another note, any word on the rough sawn lumber yet?

Hey Troy,
Today was a busy one so I didn't get to that. I will try tomorrow.

If I could make a suggestion
A detent, flat spot, friction disc, etc for center.
The one my buddy made is so smooth I've only seen two or three balance it for a few seconds.
Rough sawn lumber.
You'll want to keen it preserved, used oil is good, but do it well in advance and let it soak,drip, weather.
If you coat it, make sure it isn't slippery when wet

Hope someone posts pics of one of these. We need something like that to use at shows.
