Ok, my Springfield plow's coulter wheel is an odd size (8.75" OD) and is worn out and bent, same with its hub. The hub rides on a 3/8" bolt (can't recall the width). Thought about using a saw blade as a coulter wheel but doubt it would hold up long. I know some of you guys are fabricators... and machinists, with skills and equipment I am not qualified to use lol. So, my question is, can anyone make a coulter wheel that would work for me? It can be one piece, two piece, or even three depending on your method of going about the hub. Heck, even 4 pieces, as long as it works, bushings or not lol. Any takers on this one?

Thanks in advance, Casey

by the way, don't need to win a beauty contest with it, and its a proprietary coulter design from the factory, so no one will know what it should look like, so open design on this one guys.

Paper plate probably wont work, but if you have anything that does, that would be great. I am open to any OD from 8"-8.75". Not sure if 9" would work, but it might. I have to doublecheck the through bore of the hub tomorrow, but its probably going to need to be around 1-1.5". Don't quote me on that, I will get a true dimension tomorrow morning before I head to work.

Chris,
I have a bracket, just need a coulter wheel. The plate is funny, but it probably won't hold up. Any other items in there?

Might be best to keep it closer to 8" diameter for clearance.

I lost the internet at midnight, so I went out looking around the shop. Nothing yet, but I'll look around in the morning to see if I have anything to make the hub and the coulter. Who knows maybe another member already has one laying around that they would part with? I'll let you know tomorrow how I make out though.

how about a picture of the one you have and some detail measurements. Might have one just lying under the bench or a least something closer than that fine looking paper plate. By the way the best plate to use is Chinet brand, you know the ones with the 3 compartments to keep your veggies out of your pudding.

I just had to do it! When I measured my plate and it was the same size I went right out to the shop with it LOL.It was good too cause I needed a good laugh today.

Well, I would but don't care for the design as much. The thru bore needs to be about 1 inch. Let's try to keep diameter around 8 inches. Immigration be nice to have bushing in the hub though. If anyone wants to try making a one piece coulter wheel/hub setup with bushings in its hub that would be impressive. :)

I bet the OEM didn't have that floral pattern.
