New ones are NLA, have probably been for 20 years. I made one but don't remember what kind of wood was used. Somewhere on the main SimpleTractors page there are dimensions for a do-it-yourself swathboard.

I used a piece of a pressure treated 1"x6"x6' fencing board to make mine from. One of the vertical boards in my privacy fence got broken by a tree limb that fell. When I replaced it, I used the remainder of the broken board to make the swathboard.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
