Fashioned after the Woods 3PH backhoe I had on the JD750, scaled by eye and looking at a picture.

Dipperstick, bucket linkage and bucket cylinder done, just need to finish soldering the pins. Bit of trial and error to get the linkage right, tried a new method of pinning the cylinder that I'm very happy with. Made possible by my mini-mill which I didn't have available when I built cylinders for the loader.

Building the Operator's Station:

Image

First the mock-up out of card stock to determine dimensions and fold lines. Originally all one piece which worked nicely in card stock.

Image

Then the trial version in aluminum flashing, wherein I learned that doing it all in one piece wasn't going to work. Clean bends by hand are doable in card stock. Using metal, I found there was no way to do all the bends on the brake and bending the tabs by hand wasn't giving me crisp corners.

Image

Then the final version in brass (less detail stuff like valve handles).

Image

Setting loosely in place on the main frame to check fit and eyeball the proportions. The console is actually too wide, but redoing it is enough work that I'll just live with the proportions being a tad off. Can't see it from the living room...

99% finished, just needs a few details added.
