This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Metal Working.

When you have a tractor or similar piece of heavy equipment, it's nice to be able to hook a chain on for lifting logs or other heavy stuff.  Buckets and scoops don't often have attachment points for chains.  Let's change that!

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - The supplies you're starting with
 - Partway through the build
 - The finished hook or clevis welded securely
