I ordered the steel for my next project today, a 72” tooth bucket. This one is pretty straight forward.
The bucket I can hadle, its posting the pics I am worried about. This is a trial run.

You know Eric, I read that whole tutorial on the pics a few times before and didn't catch the whole copy the picture thing. Man, I feel like a royal IDIOT, and rightly so. Thanks for the help.

Ive got 4 words for you ........................build em & sell em
Sterlclan, that is exactly what I intend to do.
I decided to build a tooth bucket because I got a skid steer job that requires excavating some virgin soil, also I don't have one. Both, good enough reasons. Just happened to stop by my local Bobcat dealer to get some teeth for the project and he suggested that I build him some buckets (we already build them skidsteer trailers). Now my bucket has become the prototype for our first production run of factory buckets. I plan to also sell factory direct in the future, if I can swing it. As part of the deal we will also be building individual quick-tach mounts.
It is a very competitive market, but if we can do it just to stay busy then so be it. I will have some pics as soon as I can.

Just finnished painting the bucket. It weighs in at 585 pounds without the 7 bolt on teeth. I am excited to use it tommorow as I will be starting my dig job. I have never used one, but I am sure they are awesome, especially with brand new teeth. I will also be using the new grapple bucket to haul a pile of old debris. I will probably get a picture posted tommorow.

Used it today for 4 hours digging and it works great. I like how you can backdrag with the teeth the best. I have to run. Later.
