This is the mount for a model 59713 Tiller attachment for a Jake 1450 (or similar) tractor. I have one tractor and 2 tillers, but only one mount. So I have been planning this build for some time. I have been collecting necessary metals needed and got to a point of starting the build. I had one tiller attached, so I had to dismount it to get the part needed to build from.
This is what I hope to clone:
I took 2 pieces of 3/4" plywood and attempted to layout the mounting pin holes. That didn't work out.
On this assembly are 2 items I can not clone, so will have to seek outside assistance for those (circled in Blue here).
I put the two 3/4" pins in their holes and set the respective tubes to match the originals. Once that plate was welded on, I inserted the 1/2 pin and tube to weld it's plate on.
That all complete, I made the center brace and welded it in. Time to check it out against the original.
The two pins that attach this to the tractor lined right up with the original. The tiller mount tube is a little off, but that is not an issue I can see.
Now to source the above items and the pulleys. The springs will be another set of items to source.
