  • Torch away the necessary areas. See diagrams.
  • The holes for the hopper mounting need to be 28" away from the bottom side. Mark 28" on the opposite tubing walls and torch 1/2" holes. Insure a 1/2" bolt goes all the way thru.
  • Torch the cutaway at the top and the slot.
  • Grind away any slag.

  • Lay one support on the table, with the grate mount slot touching the table.
  • Get the Shaker Mount and tighten 3/4" bolts with nuts to the Soil Shaker so the bolt head is where the hammer will be.
  • Prop this up on the hopper support, so the first bolt is about 2" above the 28" hole and both bolts are touching the support.
  • Mark which side of the shaker you are welding the bolts for.

  • Tack the bolts in place, remove the nuts and dismount the shaker.
  • Protect the threads, and finish welding the bolts to the support.
  • You are only doing this on one of the supports, the other side, you will do in place, so the spacing is correct.

Step #4: Make the Grate Supports.

  • Punch the hole on the bottom of the supports for each.
  • Torch away a 4" section on the top of each grate to make it like the model shown.
  • Remember that the two are mirrored.
  • Cut away the corner so the hopper wont hit it, about a 1" 45 degree triangle.
  • Torch a slot for a 3/4" bolt at the top of the mount, as shown.
  • Grind away all the slag.
