I'm not one to toot my own horn, but I just wanted to let everybody know I'm a Planet Whizbang Pioneer. Yes, that's right, a Planet Whizbang Pioneer (note I was only 13 away from being something not as noteworthy).
The reason for my crowning is a recent purchase of a wheel hoe kit. This wonderful website tells you just how to build one of your own, but my decision to purchase the pieces came down to a simple calculation of how much time it would take me to source the metal, build a jig to bend some pieces, bend some pieces, be unsatisfied with how the jig bent the pieces, build another jig to bend some pieces, again be unsatisfied, give up and crawl around on my hands and knees and pull every single stinking weed by hand. I don't think I'll regret it.
As an aside, I first stumbled across Mr. Kimball about 4 years ago when I was searching for resources on how to butcher a chicken. His is one of the best websites, with great photos. It's been viewed nearly a million times. Now that's a lot of butchered chickens.
