    I am in the need of a couple of pin forks. Anyone know where I can get them from?

    Make em! Find an A-2 center and steal some broken turret wires, weld em to a metal pole lookin thing and whala. and for a personal touch weld on a washer so you can hang it.

      We make ours out of the U-bolts (070-001-422) that hold the curtain protection pad (070-001-432) to the cushion weldment. They're strong & the perfect width.

      Cut the threads off of the U-bolt. Smooth out the ends on a grinder. Put a 90 deg. bend about ½” from each end & weld it to a ½” O.D. conduit or (my favorite) stainless tube.

        P.S. I bought a couple from bowler supply a couple of years ago. About 25 bucks apiece.

          I made a couple a while ago from a piece of 1" black pipe about 4" long, and some 1/4" smooth round stock. Drilled a hole in the side for a nail or screw, and voila... a device that turns any broom handle into a pinhook.

          The new ones we made are basically the same thing, but instead of the pipe, we shaped the round stock and welded it to about 5 1/2 feet of 1/2" smooth rebar, and put a piece of rubber hose over the butt end so if you push a ball out with it, you don't gouge it up. I'll post some pics and plans for ya... they take about 5-10 mins to make with the help of a little welding.

              What style of pin hooks do you like best? The flat style with small 1/2" bends on the end or the claw shaped ones that hang onto a pin while holding the pole strait up and down?

              I like the strate ones. Easy to get in and out by the curtain.
