Some time ago I posted that I needed a couple of pins made that I designed.  These were pins to use on my rear blade so that I could hook up to cat. 1 or cat.0 hitches.  Well I spoke with my nephew about them and he agreed to make them for me.  He is a very good machinist.  I looked around before I did this and found pins that were cat. 1/2 and 2/3 but could find any that were 1/0.  Cat. 0 just doesn't seem to get much respect.  Anyway, behold, the pics below show the fruits of our labor to get these things done.  They installed perfectly (just as I envisioned) and look great.  He made 6 total so I let his dad keep three, because he could use them too, and I have one spare.  Very happy with the way these turned out.  Should anyone else want to get some made, I'll be happy to send a pdf file of the design now that I know it works.

Nice. So that back blade is normally a catorgory one. ? And the inside hook up is now catorgory zero, great idea. Quite a range of tractors between a GT with catorgory zero and a small farm tractor with a catorgory one hook up.

Yes, the blade was originally made for category 1.  When I bought it, I only had category 0 but I knew I could get cat. 0 pins and turn them in.  Used it for years on my Power King and the Beav.  Then the Massey came along and I put the cat. 1 pins back on it.  All that time I wished I could use it on all my tractors without having to switch pins all the time.  Now I can.
