Hello again FB,

Can you share what you bought for the JD quick attach pieces (JD part numbers)? I've been searching the parts site and can't seem to get results.

It seems I might be getting the opportunity to build a pair of these for myself, thanks to being born in this part of the year. Oh well, she asked what I wanted....

The brackets Im unsure of for a part numbers the JD store just called them hoop and pins.
I found them. The "hoops" is called "Hooks". They're $12.59 each. The Pins are $82.50 each!! I'm guessing you probably actually made your own pins and just forgot, based on how much you remember the project costing.

Even if you didn't make your own pins, I will be for sure. I don't mind spending $164, but not on something so basic and relatively insignificant.

How did you cut your steel plate? Plasma, flame, laser? I'm guessing you have access to the equipment at work for that. No fair. We have a laser but employees aren't allowed to slip work into it. Drat.

I paid $52.00 dollars for the hoops and pins together... The steel was rough cut with hydef plasma to square dimensions I then used a torch to cut out the desired shapes. We do have multi million dollar laser tables and Hydef plasma as well as torch tables for 5" and heavier steel but I cant get custom shapes cut out only square rectangle to get complex shapes I would need programmers in the office to draw up a DX file and send it out like a work order Big Money... think the forks are something check out my old snow push Now sold..>>>> http://www.mytractorforum.com/showthread.php?t=105681
Ok, well I guess I'll have to call a dealer and ask. The online price for the pin sure seems way out of whack. It's just 1045 steel! I've been meaning to call for something else anyway.

If you could manage to get around your Work Order hurdle, I could spit out DXF's all day long. That's all in a day's work over this way. I'm thinking about designing my pallet fork frame in Solidworks. Then, I'll see about getting any plate pieces flame cut someplace.

That snow pusher looks sweet. I hope you made a few bucks on it. Must have weighed a ton. Love the decal-manship.

This is the place I have bought them from twice before just give them a call they can ship them to ya fairly cheep and have allways had them In stock>>> http://www.cwco-op.com/09/machinery/
FB, thanks for the info. I called and ordered a set. Real nice fellow named Bruce. I wish people in MA were like that.

The parts were the same exact part numbers as on the website, but the prices don't match. Over the phone the pins are $16.50 and on the web they are $82.50. Strangely, 82.50 / 16.50 = 5. Hmmm.

Thanks much!

Sweet, F. Looks almost as good with the paint on it as it does without. I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Oh yeah, I completely forgot about that - summer projects piled up. I wish there were a better way to get the measurements you need. It'd sure be great if you could find someone out your way with this equipment. Maybe ask your dealer?
