 Homemade forks

Does anyone have pictures of a set of forks that they made themselves? If so please show me you design and give any advice you can. I am going to build a set and need a little advice. I would like to have a set that go over the bucket but will entertain any advice. Thanks

If you are anywhere near a major city there will be several companies around who sell & service forklifts.

Usually they have old used fork sets that can be bought for very little money. The design of the forks will have a lot to do with how you mount them.

If you are lucky you can find a set of the type which mount on a 2" round bar. Then you just need to make a frame of 4" 'C' channel to hold the bar.

Best of luck.

There are two or three different kinds of bucket type forks for sale on ebay. I've seen clamp-on types as well as some held to the bucket by chain. They look like they might be pretty easy to build. I've heard though that visibility is an issue with the bucket in the way.

Ck my pics out. I made the forks from 2x3" steel tubing and used the Rankin forks as a model.

Nice looking set of forks! How much weight can you pick up with them? By the way, nice looking M-1 is it a real one? You need the barrel stabilizer and flash supressor too. They make it look really kewl! Wink yeah right
