The ploughs are there to shove the sand about - to turn it over and mix it up, before it once more finds its way under the wheels which crush out any lumps.

After scouring my scraps pile, I eventually came up with a bit of old gas bottle, the remains of when I made my experimental self feeding wood burner I think...

Anyway, I cut it with the angle grinder, into shapes that looked like they would work for scooping and shifting sand. That done, I made some slots (drilling and hand file) in some steel bar off-cuts to make the 'plough handles'.

To weld the handles to the two ploughs I put things in place, on the muller, and tack welded them, before laying the assembly on the bench and welding properly.
