Kenny, your pieces will be on there way home this week. Thank-you ,I was able to duplicate them and should be able to make more if ever needed . I guess there isn't much call for them? I haven't heard a thing on any interest? .

You never know when some one will need one. Glad you could duplicate them. I thought some would be interested in the blade parts, but nothing there either. Just out of curiosity, can you add the second hole for the right side piece for me. It would be nice to have it there for later use. I might find something to fit in it one of these years. LOL

Already figured out a use for the second set of holes. I need to add some weight back there when I am using the blade. The limited slip works, but it needs more weight on the rear to dig in. And I really don't want it going up and down with the blade.

Kenny, I am going to send you all the parts to make the right side for the 3 point, it is easier than trying to put a second hole in your plate because of the welded in sleeve . And it will fit in with the rest of the parts later on so you can finish making it a true 3 point.:thumbs:
You can weld 1/4" plate correct? If not I can glue it up for ya ?

Yeah, I can weld 1/4" okay. Thanks for the extras. Hey, I've been worried about rear ballast for traction, Big DUH! I've got the tiller. Just have to tie it up and remove the lift link.

If I need to do some heavy pushing, i'll use my tiller , but normally just the wheel weights and chains are enough .

Kind of like the last 2 pics, I cut a road into the bank with that rig, only to later sell and buy what I have now.

That is a sweet set up for the blade. Quite the cut you made there.

Yes, it is, Buck. Keith does some nice work. Wish I could make something look that good when I got done with it.

There are only 2 extras , all the others have a need. I'll be sending them over to ya tomorrow Kenny, and then all you will need to do is find some 1.125 shaft to mount your weights to, or what ever you like .
I am going to mount all the proto type parts on my 125 ,so everything will be a bolt on app.
Buck, as soon as my new GT shed is finished , you can bring it on down and I can set you right up .

Thanks, Keith. I'll have a need for the tiller when I start the 'Tractor Port'. I will have to tear up some of the dirt so I can 'lay' the floor blocks I have picked up. And thanks for taking the time to clone the parts. Once word gets out you can make these pieces, you may have lots to do.
I hope you and Buck do get together. That could be a fun time.

I would like to get a three point hook up on my JD 140 and I live just up the road from you Kieth, depending on what part of taxachusetts you are in. If you are interested. I will not be doing anything till spring but I figure I should get a foot in the door now before you get crazy busy. You have done some real nice work and I would think that you will find yourself using up all your spare time slapping parts together. Not a bad job to have, fabricating parts, metal forging. I like that kind of stuff but I dont have the equipment just yet.
