    Last year...someone on here was in school with too much time on their hands. They were making custom ordered plow bus. card holders. I was supposed to get one of the first 3 and things went haywire somewhere and I didn't get one. Does anyone know who it was or how to get ahold of them?

    can you describe them better? if the original designer doesn't show, i may be able to do something. I'm pretty good at making things from wood/metal.

    They looked EXACTLY like a plow...moldboard and a-frame. He did them red,yellow,blue and orange.I think the a-frame is what held the cards with the moldboard in front?

    was the whole plow 3D? and the cards basically sat behind the blade leaning against the lift arm and headlights?

    I remember this very well. I didn't order one but I do remember thinking wow thats a great idea. I think he was a high school student and he did the first one as a project for shop class.

    that's a pretty good i dea, i think i'll design one on the shop bot for landscaping.
    here is the web site for the Shop-Bot CNC router, a pretty cool little machine, designed for wood working, but with the propper bits, she can cut through up to 1/2" of steel. andit has the capability to make things far too complex for humans to do with hand tools.

    couldn't find it either, probably because i dont' know what im looking for really, and also came to the conclusion that what you are looking for is too complex for me to fab up by hand. I bet the guys who make the model plow trucks could pull it off though!

    It was REALLY pretty simple! Cards went right behind blade...bracket at back of a-arm held 'em up(2 small uprights. About 2" tall...6"wide(blade)4-6" long(front of blade to back of a-arm)
    think he made it out of 12-18 ga. sheet metal. not sure what the a-frame was made from.
