Did you form the piece or was it a prebent insert that you bought? If you formed it, how thick is it and what process did you use.?

Very Nice work. I get farmers that go to auctions and buy backhoe bucket that don't fit the boom , the pins aren't spaced right, or pin holes are different than what they need. So they come to me to make the bucket fit their backhoes. I also Have bought several different buckets and converted them over to fit my Ford New Holland 555E backhoe.

How crucial are the pin pivot points?
Do you align them to the machine(taking into account wear, bending, etc), or just make sure they're trammed/aligned as the bucket sits(ie., like a brand new bucket)? Hope I phrased that right.
I'll never do anything this size, but it's always a source of worry when I fix an old part that's been on a piece of equipment for a long time.
