this is a template of a 6" moldboard plowP5010098.JPG

 

that i stretched out to 8,1/2 "from a planet junior walk behind powered unit of the cousins so i set to make it & this is how it turned out  

 

 P5140119.JPG P5140115.JPG

i had to change the land side heel to heavier & angle to hold in the cut wall ( trials & errors ) works good now 

 

the share & coulter is 1 piece on this build  & of 3/16 high pressure pipe , i can turn the unit on the bar to set side angle for the land side wall with a large bolt & nut & adjust the cut pitch by adjusting the top linkage in or out

 

Shane

 

P.S. i do apologize for not more pic's time was limited to getting it all done !

That's cool, a plow that rolls to the left, all ours roll right, ouh yeah I forgot you guys down under do things opposite .... Just kidding of course, have you turned any soil under with it yet ? You folks must be getting close to harvest time ?

Sorry about the camera.
The plow looks good, should keep the garden going for a long time.

Can I make a couple suggestions?
1 Find some high carbon 1/4" x 2.5" and bolt it along the bottom as a wear edge. The top ledge may need removed when you put it on, but I'm sure you're capable :D.
Not that the moldboard won't wear too, but the share is going the really suffer and that might be an easy way to prolong the units life.
2 Is that toplink an old C band actuator? If so, the ones we had here like that had a cast acme nut. Would hold up to anything but sharp impact, then it'd shatter. Just a word of caution.

Thank you for the suggestions , i do enjoy them as most of you people have done & made more stuff than me as it is over 35 yrs

 

since i used a tractor for farm work & forgotten most, much less make the stuff  just from what i have seen in here 

 

 ya'll an inspiration for me 

 

The top linkage was an old type car jack or trailer/ caravan hitch lift winder (jockey wheel )as we know it & this 1 has a 1

inch steel nut in side

Hi holdenboy1960, nice job on the plow build, I noticed the left roll right off but as long as it works now you could build a right one and hitch them together and when you get to the end on the field just turn around and come back, There were a number of mfg the built them back a few years ago. Likewise will be watching for action photos, just don't lose your camera and plow it under :dancingbanana: :wave:
