    Quick Edge Tamer question...

    Does anyone happen to know (or remember) the size bolt that R2Manufacturing uses to secure the Edge Tamers to the bucket? I wanted to order some swivel pads for the bottom of them to give me a more secure fit but I don't know the thread size off the top of my head.

    They are currently on my neighbors tractor being put to good use so I can't measure one...

    I don't remember the size right off but I can check tonight if need be. I seem to recall them being fine thread bolts too.

    My bolts are 1/2-20 x 2-1/2 long.

    Please let us know where you get the swivel pads.

    Yes please!

    I’m afraid to crank down too hard and put dimples in my bucket.

    I've cranked mine down pretty hard and they will put tiny marks on the surface of the bucket where the tip of the bolt digs in. Nothing that would ever be an issue.

    But swivels on the tips would be a more elegant setup.

    Don't the little washers they send act as little swivels? Maybe not elegant, but functional.

    I don't recall mine coming with any washers. Perhaps it is something they started adding later.

    Mine came with a couple fender washers. Don't remember the exact size as I threw them in my nut/bolt/washer organizer bin. Less likely to get lost. If I need to use them, I just grab a couple fender washers out of there. Exact size isn't very important, as long as they're bigger than the bolt.
