Why don't you just buy one? They aren't that expensive, and the quality is probably better.

Well, as a skilled welder/fabricator I can honestly tell you that you should just buy one lol. You will for one need to buy a shovel just to have part of the proper materials. You will also need to have the means available to make the shovel fold down and back, and lock in place, which will be more material (metal sleeve of some sort, plate, bolts etc.)


Long story short, buy one.

Didn't see your last post while I was typing, if you are doing it for shop and have all the tools available to build one, do it, I could build one at the shop I work at but it wouldn't have a molded blade like the ones in the store. I'd reccomend using a blade off a small shovel as your base.

Here is a link where you might get an idea for one, do a search WeldingWeb™ - Professional Welding Forum - Powered by vBulletin
