Dug my last carrots and plowed up the garden as I wanted to use the Craftsman 10" (Brinly) plow I picked up this spring. I plowed deep to get a good turning of the dirt. When I finished I noticed the share tip is starting to bend down. It's not realy worn that thin. Has anyone reworked or had their share reworked? When I was younger I took our big plow shares to a blacksmith to have redone. I don't know of any blacksmiths around here any more. I looked at the Brinly site online and they want $93.31 for the share. I couldn't belive it. I can buy 3 18" share for my JD spinner plow for that. I only gave a $100. for the complete plow with coulter wheel.

Could you take a picture of the bend? Some of them had a natural and intentional tip down & I'm wondering if it's just more visible now.

I think mine has worn off there. Not much of a bend any more. I have looked at several of you guys pics and can see what it should look like.

The curve on the bottom is called "plow suck", it is what "sucks" the ple into the ground, without it the plow will ride up out of the ground.

That's what 'sucks' about mine. It has none, pretty flat there. Thought about adding some weld to build it back.

I know they have some down turn, but I wouldn't have thought this much. Wouldn't be the first time I was wrong. I know it's affecting the plows ease of cut. Here are some pictures. Hard to show but in the picture of the top surface the shiny area on the tip is where the bend begins and causes a lot of resistance. For now I will keep using it as it is.

I've got 2 plows with less than an hour's plow time on them. They have that much downturn. Try to take pics later.

Yup. Looks normal to me. I bought a new one last year and it came out of the box that way. Plowing more than half the depth of the moldboard will cause it to pull harder as it's usually adjusted to pull best at normal depth.

Okay, here's some pics of mine. I never did get it to dig into the ground, no matter how I set it. I used the 'sticky' for the first setup.

Thanks everyone. Guess i'm wrong and bothered for nothing. I sure don't mind being wrong on something like this. This is one of the reasons this site is so great, lots of info and help.

Looking at you folks pics, it looks like mine is worn back pretty good.
