I'm pretty well the same 28, only I have watched one U-tube video of a guy using a homemade hiller roaring through his potato patch. This machine is all partly in my head and partly 'by the seat of my pants'.

Quite a bit of fabricating happened today. I've got the left hand side three quarters done. It looks like the previous mock-up, but it is more solid now.

MM - Looking nice, much stronger. As I said before I have no idea what the finish unit will look like. Looking forward to seeing it in action.

I've done a wee bit more welding and some imagineering on the second brace. It needs something holding the back end of the moldboard to the backbone.
28, I hope to test it out this fall, even though I don't need to hill potatoes, this year anymore.

MM-- I'm just an old west coast surfer dude that was never around a farm and have no idea what "hilling potatoes" is, can you enlighten me a bit on the subject? Thanks
