I have seen a few factory disk plows for garden tractors. One was on a ridemaster and the other was on a crawler type walk behind. Has anyone got one or made one to fit there tractor? Just curious if it would work worth a darn or not.

They work real well if you don't have rocky soil, they don't like rocks. You see them mostly in the south east because of the sandy soil conditions.

I see you are in Indiana, under the impression the soil is similar to here in Mass, was never popular here for good reasons as taxasdeer&horse stated above. The rolling action of the blade is much easier to pull then the pointed share of a plow.

Think of it like this : Disk harrow are several small disk plows in a row on a common shaft with no provitions for any kind of draft control, the action of the two rows of disks action apond each other counter acts the other keeping the draft centered. If you modify a disk harrow using only a single row of disks and following how draft and suction is achieved with a single disk plow you could end up with small disk plows to learn and experiment with first.
