    No help on the boneyard, but if you know the exact length, your local farm supply store may have one. As with a bone yard, make sure you get the correct cylinder, that will take the amount of hydraulic pressure required. We have Tractor Supply and Agri Supply. If its a home made thumb, you need to do your math, or its not going to work correctly. Hydraulic thumbs are great, but if they are not set up correctly, they are a PITA
