Sand Digger Mounts On Disk Blade

Every year Shaun Perret of Dalmeny, Sask. makes his little guys something for Christmas. One of his best creations was a digger for their sandbox. "It's a fun way to move sand from one location to another or to load it into their trucks," he says.
  Perret machined the digger himself and painted it his favorite color, John Deere green. The base, a disc, has a spindle and two tapered roller bearings under it so the cylinder rotates smoothly. The control sticks are made from 3/4-in. pipe covered with rubber handles. The "operator" sits on a plastic bike seat.
  One controller raises and lowers the bucket while the other one tips the bucket.
  Perret drew up detailed plans for a second one he built for his nephew and is willing to sell the plans for $20 (Can.).
