    yesterday I learned to weld (got a little old stick welder that is like 45 amps or so) and i'm liking it! I built a slip scoop bucket for my old Bush Hog garden tractor. Here's some photos. It will hold 2.5 cu. ft. of whatever. It's 3' wide. This will be my mulch mover :D works pretty good.

    also got to paint it when i'm completely done with latch. gonna make brackets to put it on front of tractor also. Then I can have a blade on back or something. Can use the blade to push up piles better etc.
