    hay spear build

    Needed to make another hay spear for the Allis Chalmers 6080 so that I could put the smaller one back on the IH 354.

    Re: hay spear build

    I couldn't figure out what the hell you were doing until maybe the last two pics. Is this for a 3point hitch setup on the rear of a tractor? I am not knowledgeable at all on those, but my next door neighbor installs laser leveling systems on tractors and I have seen them. Is that the type of setup you are using (3point)?

    Re: hay spear build

    When I was in college, as a joke I put up a few fliers announcing a PETA fundraising Bar-b-que, and I put the phone number of a professor that DID NOT have a sense of humor as the contact for more info...needless to say, he didn't get the joke...neither did the ACTUAL PETA members.

    What you call the spear looks like what i call a Johnson bar.About 17 dollars at home depot.Am i missing something? Johnson bar is used for busting up packed dirt or road rock so you can shovel it up.Anyway great job!! I like making my own tools also
