Hi, i would like to host a build-it weekend at the Firehouse, for farmers and tool makers. The tool proposed is the adabio jiffy hitch, which makes picking up and dropping off implements from a tractor faster, easier, and safer. Attached is the pdf for this tool, in French. The proposed weekend is November 9,10. The Firehouse is 98 Reed Rd Wesport MA.
Are you interested? Are any other farmers interested? Do any farms actually want to order such a tool in advance? How much will they cost? How many implement parts are needed on your farm (ie. How many implements need to be outfitted?)? Can someone translate the document to English? What SAE unit steel channels nest and would be appropriate size for the "American translation" of the dimensions? Can you bring: 1.an abrasive chopsaw 2. an angle grinder. 3. welding mask 4. blowtorch 5. food 6. a tractor and implement to use as a demonstration.
If i know in advance how many we hope to build, i could cut most of the parts out the week before so less time is wasted. i could also build one so we have a working model.
People can bring sleeping bags and roll out on the floor Saturday night.
Please spread this to farmers that might be interested.
Let me know what you think, lu
