    I've been using one from Curt that is cast steel. Trailer is a 6K Felling Tilt. No complaints so far, and not as fussy as the finger-eaters. (Note that I always check things before the coupler gets...

    I see non-metric ones in the Hamilton(?) hardware bins at the local Ace hardware. They offer quantity box sales, though you might have to get with their distributor.

    Can you catch the majority of chips with strong, well-placed magnets? Wrap in plastic for easy cleanup.

    Pin 3 makes the other two stand up straight.

    If the hole isn't actually round, then all bets are off.

    Forged. Make sure the ball shank is the full size of the hole.

    You could modify them or make adapters so they stick in the forklift pockets in the base. A tight fit would keep them upright with nothing to lean against.

    Or, you could use 4x timber to bridge...

    Always buy hitch hardware rated for the same or more as your receiver. No weak links in the chain.

    I too use the B&W ball mount above. You'll always have the right thing... (except a pintle...

    If they fill the bore with no clearance, you're good to go. This is what the little ball peen hammers are for.

    I have valve-stem monitors on my RV. They make T-shaped adapters that let you leave the monitor attached while you air up the tire. Monitor goes on either 'leg' for best access. They add to the...

    A long time ago, Rt. 60 out of Charleston headed east was a nice drive. This was decades ago, and they had just completed re-paving it, so many folks were still avoiding it. It was a pleasant...

    Motor mounts in shear might be better-isolating than just compression. Would keep your overall height in control, too.
  13. That's a tough one -- lots of variables,...

    That's a tough one -- lots of variables, including the amplitude and frequency you want to protect against. Of course, much is done by the trailer's suspension -- is it going to be loaded to its...

    The $0 listing price on Craigslist is partially to avoid scam buyers, too. They'll scan the listings, and try the certified-check dance on anything that could be worth their while -- like a machine...

    Unistrut and its associated trolley wheelsets are rated for about 400 lbs., with actual engineering data sheets available... Assuming the overhead structure can support that, of course.

    I have not seen blueprints for those, but also have not looked specifically.

    I do know that I would trade a pretty-much-working* x-power feed from my Toolmaster 1D for a mid-range...

    So, once we're smart enough to do it all ourselves, we're not smart enough not to do it. I'm with ya.

    Update: plugs on the Ranger took a couple hours... for #3 on the driver's side. The other 7...

    We had to move a bed mill to, and later from, an area that had a basement underneath. So heed Ox's tale (!) regarding forklift weights.

    We ended up making skates out of HDPE (dimestore cutting...
