    You'll probably find that most pin suppliers can supply you ready made pins for less that you can make them up yourself, or is this for a special project ?

    As muz says above, but i have made oddball pins from black round EN14 that's roughed to size, hardened in an oven (can't remember the temperatures but I can probably find them in my book) then finish turned to size.

    Trouble is i need to make up 4 new brackets/saddles for attachments which will all be different to suit each attachment as i have changed Machine, to buy sides&pins will cost 100 odd each for s30 hitch, thats why i thought buy material and make my own

    Cheers Guys
