Got any pics? I did mine this way so I could trade between the 12" & 10" rather easily!

This was the only plow I used in Kentucky and it worked as planned. I am real happy with this!

Ehem lol. I do believe there was another plow you used in Kentucky. Of course I too used both my plow and the 10" conversion plow. Both work great.

That was fall plowing, and it really works good, as for shining up a plow.... Never .. The ground will do it just fine, It just takes a little extra power first few passes, then its all shined up and slick as a whistle.

I found some metal to make a 3-point hitch for this plow. Then it will have it's own and not share with the 12" plow. Got the pieces cut & bent today. I plan to tack weld parts together so the holes remained aligned. Here's some pics. Probably no more until next week due to the show.

I have some 2X2 square tube for the cross piece. I'm using the plans I drew up.

Looks great as usual, Kenny! What do you do your bends with? If you looked at my sleeve hitch at Daniels plow day, you know I'm in dire need of better techniques!

I used the 20 ton press with this on it.

Kenny did you need to add heat along with the press or a cold bend ?

I did it cold, Al. If this was for a 12" plow, I would use 1/2" strap instead of the 3/8" I'm using for this 10" plow. That would probably need heat to bend.

Oddly enough, I just got a Harbor Freight 20-ton press! I have the blade from a large press brake, I'll build a lower die and guides to go with it. Thanks!

Just be careful, the metal this press is built from is not good old USA metal!

I've noticed it seems a bit thin in places. I'll be careful!

Got some time today and fired up the welder. Had to drill some holes first. I tacked matching parts together to drill so holes would align well.

Trimmed the corners to make it look nice.

I had to 'extend' the 2X2 some.

All done and ready for paint!
