I'm rebuilding a couple rusted up single discs to make a double.
There's a couple I can reuse that I have to replace. All the replacement disc blades
I've found say they're 12". When I measure mine, they're 11". My question
Is how are the measurements on these figured? Before or after the concave? As in do they start
At 12, then they get smaller after they concave them?

I believe the Brinly Disc are 11 I think you can still get them from Brinly but not for sure last I knew they were a bit pricey

Pretty sure they are smaller than the 12. Center hole too.

Couple of guys have planned on using a bigger one and cutting it down, don't recall ever reading a follow up there.

These are several different disks, maybe they were made by Brinly, but one is for sure a Wheel Horse, the other two were pretty rusted up and I cant tell, but all seem to be about the same size at 11"  Does it matter all that much if they're an inch off one another?  Would it make that a big a difference when disking?  Reason I ask is cuz ASC has them for about $6.50 a disk, so I can replace what I need to and get a few extras for under $50 bucks.

It might work, but it might be that you will need to trim them down.. Probably depends mostly on the soil conditions and if you care about the look or if these are just for fun/workers.

Like has been mentioned, only Brinly carries the outdated 11" dics. If making a double, go for 11" across the front and 12"'s in the back. Replace the fronts with 12's when necessary.

 

I am taking for granted that there is room for 12" dics on there. :anyone:

Ok last dumb question.  Can someone clarify how the numbers on these things go?  AgriSupply.com has some numbers on their product listing I cant figure out.  They're listed like this, I just grabbed a listing as an example:

 

26" x 6MM (pretty self explanitory, but I assume the diameter and thickness)

1 1/2" SCH (no idea what this means)

1 5/8" RCH (again, no clue)

3 7/8" CONC (degree of concave maybe?  As in laying outside edge of the disk flat and how tall it'd be?)

 

If anyone a helluva lot smarter than me can make heads or tails of it for me I'd sure appreciate it.  Thanks

Agri-supply sells the 3./4" center hole in both a smooth and notched discs...............I rebuilt my 3pt Brinly disc a year or so ago and put the 12" notched discs on it because I liked the looks of them..........It has never been hooked to a tractor since I put it back together........ :D

 

P.S.  Word of advice...............DO NOT order them off of the website!!!!! Call them and order them.  The website will charge shipping rates that are OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Instead of measuring the diameter, measure the radius   11" dia =  5 1/2"  radius  12"dia + 6" radius  that means a 12" disc beside an 11"  will penetrate 1/2" deeper  Won't make much difference when your using the disc. If the 12" are in the center throwing the dirt in you will create a small mound down the center of where you disc.
