I think I will be looking for a rake next fall to rake all the pine needles and pine cones.  It is planting time right now so I am looking for plow, hiller and cultivator.

Hi all well today I was like a 6 yr old on Christmas eve waiting for the UPS Santa man to get here with the boxes, he delivered about 3:30 this afternoon so I got busy right after I finished my Tea and bolted the tines on and it looks awesome I like it I'll have to wait a month or so to really give it a trial  But for now its finished. :dancingbanana:

Looks excellent. I've really been thinking of building one. I think yours pushed me over the edge. Hoping it'll look as good as yours.

Hi Mark the bolt holes are 1 17/32" ?? that must be a metric spacing  and the spacing between the tines is 1" the tines are made in Italy and are nice good quality and hard I had to cut 3/8" off one tine, put it in the band saw started the saw went and installed a number of tines checked on the saw it had only scratched the tine so went over to the abrasive cut off saw and that got the job done.

Hi that's what the spec's on the tines were it had all the dimensions like height curve length  straight length hole placement and sizes plus the type of steel and the Rockwell hardness

Thanks for that information and the link!

I hope you follow up with a report on how well your harrow and rake work when it warms up!
