    Caterpillar built my toothbar,, I have been using it for over a decade,

    If you want to save $$$, this seems to be the way to go,
    they simply took a wide cutting edge, and cut away the parts that are not a "tooth"






    There is another piece on top to hold the toothbar on the cutting edge,,

    60HP has not been able to wear it out,,,

    Phase 2 of the project. Used 7 teeth which looked proper, have one left over for spare or for sale. Spot welded bar and it looks good. Was sure to place to rear where the front edge would clear and I also beveled the rear side of the bar. Use the pointed drill bit and secured the bar like a battleship. I'm getting a commercial welder tomorrow and will finish laying on the weld. Then paint. Project going really good.

    The steel at Modern Supply was about $50.00 and the teeth from Amazon was about $130.00 Your's truly on the fabrication. The drill bits are from Harbor Freight and the small cone models work great...don't jerk your wrist. Using 7018 on the welding rods. I set the plate back enough where it is setting flat with very little cavity on the factory bar. That somewhat a judgment item. I'm cutting the extra bolt length off but it probably doesn't matter. I can use my plasma if I want to cut bolts and remove. This bucket came on my 1025R but will also fit my JD4400 if I want to get more aggressive. Like Tractor Tim says one has to watch and not creel over the bucket and make the cylinders hit against the stops. I don't know if it is any better or worst that other models but it left my pocket book with about $150 more. I don't see pulling the bar off and on...it's just that these buckets are so expensive that most people wouldn't want to weld on them.

    Phase 2.5 went and picked up the Lincoln idealarc at Murfreesboro, Tn. Got back home removed panels cleaned out rigged it with leads and plug in. Fired up and "oh boy" it was sluggish. I noticed this when I picked it up but it looked nice and price was very attractive at $450. Machine had been used in construction and I bought off craigslist. Scratched my head a little and remembered it had been wired with a receptical on the side. A little review of the wiring diagram and to my amazement it had been wired for 460 or the high position. Put it on low 208 volts and wow did that thing take off. Believe I've got a real machine so on phase 3.0 I'll show you some 7018 runs on the tooth bar. Then a little paint and phase 3 will be completed. Those idealarc 250's are real work horses. Been wanting one for years so I found this one. It is the newer unit and not the old tombstone design. If things go well my small buzz box goes to craigslist. It is a nice unit AC/DC.

    It is torch flame cut, I have cut many tens of thousands of pounds of steel, without warping.
    A machine torch cuts so fast, there is very little of the steel that is heat affected,,
