If you opt to purchase a Whizbang Wheel Hoe Parts Kit, all the necessary metal parts you need to make your own wheel hoe are included in the kit. They are cut to size and all the bolt holes have been drilled. All you have to do is file away any sharp edges, spray paint the pieces, and bolt everything together, as fully explained elsewhere on this web site.
If you decide that you want to build your Planet Whizbang wheel hoe from scratch, the many pictures and parts descriptions on this site will provide you with plenty of details. But if you want some exact parts specifications, you can purchase the complete parts specifications package I sell (click HERE for details and scroll to the bottom of the page). What follows are actually photographs of some of the drawings that are in the specifications package.
This first drawing is for the two Tire Arms
This next drawing is for the Blade Arm (prior to being bent)
The Blade Arm must be bent to a specific shape to accommodate the spring-steel blade. This next drawing shows the specifics of the bend. I do not provide specifications for making the 8” spring-steel stirrup blade. You can just Buy One From Whizbang. Or you can purchase an 8” blade from another source. By the way, if you don’t want to go to the trouble of bending this part, you can Purchase a Whole Arm & Blade Assembly From Whizbang.
This next drawing is of the Oscillator Blade Clamp
The Body of the wheel hoe will need two holes drilled in the bottom to secure the Oscillator Blade Clamp. This next drawing shows the placement of these holes.
Three holes also need to be drilled in each side of the Body, as indicated in this next drawing.
My specifications package also provides you with actual-size pistol grip handle templates on heavy stock paper. You simply cut the template out with scissors and trace onto your handle stock.
This last picture shows you the handle and spreader dowel specifications. These are also provided (along with lots of pictures) in Step 4 of the tutorial.
