I made a heavy-duty rake out of old field cultivator shanks and 3 by 3-in. tubing. It has many advantages over commercial-built rakes because of the spring-loaded shanks, the length of the shanks and the changeable shovel points. I use it for leveling dirt, sand and gravel; raking brush or hay; cutting ditches; cleaning barn floors; and for many other chores. I like the fact that it cuts into dirt instead of sliding or bouncing like a dirt blade tends to do. (Don Ramsey, 103 Oak Forest Dr., Elm Mott, Tenn. 76640 ph 817 822-1330)
