  10. 10 min turf stripper

    Here is my 10 min turf stripper. I was at the farm store and they had a brush hog shield for $24. I thought why not make a little stripe kit for my 36" exmark wb. It's kind of like a dixie unit. Not as many links drag.

  13. Need a bunch of gussets

    I need 100 2"x2"x2" triangle pieces (60deg all 3 corners), from 3/16" mild steel, to use as reinforcing gussets. I don't have a shear that will handle 3/16" steel plate. Is this a job best sent to my local fabrication shop, or is there a (relatively) quick/easy way to do this in a home shop?
