WOW that BB looks Factory, GREAT JOB!!!!!! I left my rear pusher blade solid, no hinges, as there was no way material was going to come out with the way it was built. You might put a  set of 12 inch narrow front implement wheels/tires on it  with a 4.00-12 tri-rib. it should steer easy, Garoyl is using them on his Massey MF14, he loves them, ask him to send you a picture. Kenny I need you to look at my Box Blade and figure out a better way to hold my rippers, next time you get up this way I'll have you look at it.

I may get to try it out soon. Just letting the enamel paint sit a bit!

Revisiting this! Gonna make some 'skis' to aid with new material smoothing. This was suggested at the start of this thread. Now I see the need for them. Got 2 1/4" X 3 angles cut, slots cut in those. Not as pretty as an end mill can do, but work for me.

Slots look good from here - you can always use a hand file to finesse the looks if it bothers you.

A bolt slides through just fine so they'll work. I'll know more when I get the holes drilled in the BB. Hope to make the 'skis' today!

Want to be careful using the words "skis" - might attract a 4 letter word that starts with "S" and ends with "NOW"   :D  :D  :D

Got them ready to install. Have to get the BB up and drill the holes to mount them.
