Im looking for a place that sells the sleeve hitch adapters. The part that you weld to your equipment for use with brinley type sleeve hitches.

Matt, best thing I can tell you is to find some 3.5inch c channel. Or 3.5 inch H beam. Either one will give you a good starting point.

No , the part that welds to the plow, and you drop the pin through it to hold the plow on the sleeve hitch. I have projects that I need them for. I had some on the way, but dont think I will ever see them

matts,
The language you use confuses me.

Where I come from, a "sleeve hitch adapter" consists of a triangular shaped apparatus that converts a CAT O three point hitch to allow Brinly attachments to be mounted onto it. The hitch adapter is not welded to the tractor. It mounts onto the 3 point in the same way any 3 point attachment does and can be removed at will. It has a heavy gauge steel C-channel with vertical holes in it that will accept the Brinly attachments and secure them with a 5/8" drop pin.

From the sounds of things, you are looking for the larger C-channel that fits OVER the sleeve hitch or sleeve hitch adapter so that an implement can be mounted. If so, I'm not aware of anyone selling that C-channel with holes in it, as a separate item. I can only assume that you have found some old, ground engaging attachments around that are not sleeve hitch style but you want to weld this channel onto them to permanently make them a sleeve hitch style attachment.

If I was going to do that, I would go to my local steel supply house and have them bend a four foot length of 3/16" thick steel plate that had been sheared to the width needed to create the desired channel. Then, I would drill the holes in that length of channel before using a chop saw to cut it into the desired pieces for welding onto the implements.

Alan is right, if you were up for making your own you can use channel, or you could even use square tubing and the piece you cut out could be welded to the back of the channel to adapt it to whatever implement you are putting it on.

If you make your own for a plow, there is a 10 degree angle for the plow to set flat in the furrow.

Never knew the angle. That's good info, there.

I just learned that as someone was wanting info for one of these. Went out and put the angle finder on mine and got 10 degrees. Everything else is square.
If the pic would go larger, you would also see it is offset to the right side. Sorry I linked to that site now.
I think they are over priced myself.
