Guess I'm going to have to invest in a log splitter so I have something to bend heavy metal with.:bigrofl: Either that or pour a LARGE concrete stand for the vise to attach to.
My table the vise is bolted to won't hold up to bending anything over 1/4" thick.



Kenny, got an easier way to bend steel. Just figure up all the steel & various sizes needed for your projects. Then cut them & lay them to the side until tax time rolls around. You can likely bend them by hand by the time you get 1/2 way through your tax filing!

Your adapter does look great Mg. Go take a look at the accessories that this outfit makes for it and you'll be looking for more steel to weld on. It's about the handiest attachment for a three point and they show how universal it can be. I made a telescoping boom pole for mine years ago and used it allot until I got a loader. Now I've got a suitcase weight bracket on mine.

The link is broken, cp7. Their Handi Hitch looks interesting.

Just tried it again and it says the mhtml isn't associated with any program. Don't know why Firefox is putting the 'm' in there.

The link works fine for me. Their hitch is no more than what Mg built and there are tons of them out there. Mine is a Brinly. What is cool are the attachments that Redlandhill builds for the adapter.

Wouldn't work for me till I added "www". HANDI HITCH ACCESORIES

Fred's is built of much stronger/thicker steel.
