I believe the term "moldboard" comes from the time when plows were made of wood, and a board was molded into a curve.

I'm betting someone could write a book about the origin of word and expressions. And it would be good reading.
Bet we have all had"too many iron in the fire" at one time or another ! Hmm rustlers would have irons made to alter another owners brand. There fore could be caught with too many irons in the fire.

Thanks JD! I'm glad that I'm not the only one who is into etymology. That's a good one and I'll surely remember it!

To think all these parts and we are only talking about Moldboard plows. Let's see there's also Blade plows, Chisel plows, Disc plows and their all also used to work the land.

I took years and years to develop a good plow, and unfortunately sometimes the reason behind the names has been lost.

Yes that was one of my dad's favorite expressions, along with being "A Jack of all trades and master of none".
