    Rebar brush forks

    Yup. I made some brush forks outta rebar. Used some mild steel 9 bar and a couple plates I scrounged from the iron workers onsite. Took a couple tries to get it right and still working on welding thick steel with a pile of crap welder but itís cheaper and I like doing stuff like that. Only used it a couple hrs so far and will put it to the test tomorrow when I build my giant bonfire for the fourth



    Rebar monster



    So far so good

    A fine job indeed. How did you attach it to the bucket? (the picture doesnt clearly show that)

    2x2 bolted to back interior of bucket holding it down
    Tabs welded to the bottom piece of bar to hold it to the cutting edge

    This is what it used to look like and it failed so I flipped it and choked up on the tines

    Yea that ballast box is still a work in progress, but I got ADD, ADHD, OCD, HDMI...whatever itís called but itís got the weight I need and before long, Iíll get a couple more rungs on it and paint it up. Itís butt ugly but serves its purpose. Being a new homeowner I got stuff going on all over the place and not enough money to throw around, but priority one this summer is clean up all the wood around the place from the messy clearing job the previous owners did. I even had to take a trip across country to go to a wedding I wasnít planning last month. so hopefully this setup I spent a couple weekends and some afternoons slapping it all together will hold up. In hindsight, I would have gotten a ballast box, some weights, and a grapple thrown into the deal when I got my tractor, but I wasnít as educated in tractors as I am now. Heck, some Pallet forks would work wonders, but I just donít have that kind of cash to throw around right now so, a cheap welder, and free material brought home from work will have to do for now.

    I built this workbench setup all out of mostly dumpster diving for wood at work

    That ones at our shop 60 miles away. I live in the boonies and like doing this stuff on my own time. Iíve contemplated several times making that trek on the weekends but Iím stubborn like that. I donít get out to the shop much because I work in the field on job sites. When Iím done with work, I head for the hills and donít come out till Monday morning. That welder is the bees knees
