I remotely remember geometry from somewhere. What it is, I'm cannot recall!

I got some time to work on the blade yesterday. This is the adjustment plate for the blade angle

Well I got the hole square and my shoulder can tell you all about it. I never thought it would take that much filing. I know this doesn't make since to most of you but once I do the next step it will be a lot clearer and I will be on the down hill side of building this blade. The big part is off the full size blade and that is what I am copying.

Interesting build. I saw your tractor up at the Mt.Pleasant show. Its one of the best custom adaptation's I've seen. Here are a few pics I took back in 2014.

Okay I got a lot done tonight. I don't have a milling machine so I had a friend cut out a couple parts for the latch today. I could not wait to get it together so I worked on it right after I got home. I welded the latch holder to the tube and fit the latch, then I put in the two tabs that hold the adjusting dog, it even lined up and I could get the pin through it. Then I made the spring loaded latch arm that will be hooked to a lever on the front of the blade so you can release the latch and take one hand and turn the blade to the desired angle. In theory. Here are some pictures that should bring all this together. Now the next part is to build the 3 point on the front.

Is the spring in the first pic what snaps the keep back in and keeps it there?

Yes the spring mates up against the spindle and then against the yoke. It is what keeps the dog in the groove.

Worked on the blade some more last night and tonight. I had to beef up the end cap where the latch lever goes so I filled the bottom with JB Weld. I cut pieces of wood where the cut out sections were and then made a dam on the end.. I greased the wood and the bolt and poured the JB Weld in. I had a heck of a time clamping the rounded end and was sure I would wake up to a pile of JB Weld on the floor this morning.. It was fine and I picked the wood out and the bolt came right out with no problem. Some grinding and filing and everything came together. Tonight I put it all together and it works. It will be a bugger to get all hooked up inside the tube but with 4 more fingers I am sure I can get it. I have some adjusting and tweaking but it should all work fine. Here is a few pictures of it.

Sandblasted the blade today and primed it. Made the top adjusting link. I also drew out the front 3 point brackets so I can bend them. Getting close to being done.

I got the front wings bent for the 3 point and got ready to weld them but the welder broke. So off to get that fixed today.

Well after $148.00 i got the welder fixed. I welded the wings on and then beefed up the underside where the 3 point pins hook on. If I get time tomorrow I will start on the upper 3 point a frame .

Since it decided to rain again all day I worked on the A frame. I got it done and it looks pretty good, not perfect but pretty dang good. I have one little piece of metal to weld in on each side and I am done. Then It is paint time. I already have the decals made for it so after some sanding and priming it will be ready to paint red. Then the real test to see if the lift I made for the MF10 will pick it up. I hope so I don't look forward to rebuilding that over.
