I mentioned in another thread that I am reviving an old sickle mower. My current problem is that I need 13 sickle sections, and I have a couple of options, none of them perfect.
Option 1: I could buy new ones, but the last time I did that, it was almost $150 dollars and they wouldn't even talk me as a Canadian. I had to get an American to place the order and then ship them to me.
Option 2: I could make new ones, but that means buying some hardenable steel and spending a lot of time.
Option 3: I could rob them off of my working spare Simplicity mower, but that makes that mower useless.
Option 4: I could rob them off of my spare Allis mower bar, but then I don't have a spare.
What would you do?
