    Sub soiler build

    Been sitting on the 1" thick chunk of AR400 for my shank for this for a while, and decided I'd build it as a project while running my STD production this week.

    Yesterday I started by adding the eye tabs to the cross tube, and gusseting them.



    Then today I started working on the upper section.



    A buddy posted a mig bead on Fb with the whole stack of nickels look, so I had to take one of mine.



    Then I discovered that these tabs aren't cut with 1" holes, but 1-1/16" holes. Grrrr Which bugged me enough to sleeve them.

    To start that process, I brought them out to 1-1/8" to give a little more meat to the sleeves.



    Then whipped up the inserts and welded them in.



    Made some caps for the ends of the 4" tubes and welded those on (I did the bottom bracket last after taking the overview shot).



    Then welded it all together.



    Tomorrow I'll start working on the shank and the mounts for it to attach it to the frame.

    Thanks guys! I was thinking back to how my first welding instructor called me a gorilla when taking that pic for my buddy John, and Gene (instructor) was spot-on at the time. When I first started learning arc (stick), I was HORRIBLE. I'd be fine when the 'trode got down to around 6", but a 12"er right out of the tube was too long for me to control with any prayer of aesthetics. "Gorilla ugly - strong, but nothing to look at!" I'd pass all my bend tests, but my lord, those beads were hideous. I wonder where Gene's at now? I've still got all my fingers, and that's something he couldn't say then (unless he had them in a jar at home).


    I've got a couple options for the ripper tip. I got a 4" pan I think? and then a narrower one that looks similar to what's usually on these except that it has pointy ends. I figured getting stuff that's replaceable at the local farm supply was a better option than going with subsoiler specific parts that I'd need to order.

    I'll also be setting up the shank mounts to facilitate the addition of a pipe laying attachment for putting in hose/wire/etc.

    I would starve.

    I'll just have to settle with being envious.
