I made some progress. The front of it is done. It is mostly 2" x 2" 1/4" square tubing.
The main boom is 3" x 3" and I have all 56 3/8" holes drilled using only one drill bit.
My bolts come in tomorrow and two hole saws coming in on Tuesday.
I bought Nylock bolts so they don't come loose on their own.



I have work for this rake to do and I would like to get it finished. No one local had the hole saw size I needed.


I made some progress last night. I mounted the pipe that holds it. I drilled it for the position pin.
I welded some 2" x 2" 1/4" square tubing on to my angle iron. That should keep it from bending.



I went to the scrap yard at lunch. I found a 1/2" plate 6" wide 7.5' long.
This will work great for me. My porta bandsaw cuts 6" that makes it good for projects.
