Back in my younger days my dad used one just about like that on the hog hanging as I still have it. We did not have a loader then and used it to pick up and load thing also. Very handy and looks like you did a good job with the scraps. Metal/steel is very expensive as last year I went and bought a few pieces and they wanted way to much but had to buy. I have a couple of metal scrap piles I go through to scavenge steel as needed if I can find what I need. Selling steel right now is very cheap.
