Cultivator hoe

Hi

I have seen a hoe type tool being draged and pushed over the soil, it has little discs like the ones that follow a harrow on cultivators.

Cheers

Dave

Hmm, not spare time, just don't like spending money!  hehe  Some say tight I am not sure, spend lots of money just on things that are out of my abilities to make.

Should have it done during a couple of dinner breaks this week.

Cheers

Dave

You must have big lunch breaks too  :) . One thing that might not be clear from the pictures is that the star wheels have  opposite offsets on alternate teeth, and the hoe blade is free to rock.

One thing that's often forgotten is that tools need to be tempered and hardened, otherwise they are no different to the cheap trashy Eastern imports.

oops, that means the stock of mild steel is out, for starters.  :ohmy:

As for  big soil riddle, this works well, and you can have all sorts of size meshes.

True, but if you make it yourself there's nothing to loose, it's not like being robbed by a shop!!! I've actually been thinking of modifying a rake to make a wider version and I'm sure some 1.5 or 2mm steel will be just fine!  :)

Hi

Tempering is not really anything to be scared of, there is lots of information on the net about it.

For your cissels, I would use old leaf springs for your steel, that should give you a nice edge, but won't be too brittle.  I like the pole lathe!

Cheers

Dave

It's worse than that, you're robbing yourself. All that time spent making something that will last as long as a cheap import  :lol:
