This is my first moldboard plow. I thinking I'm going to get the rust off and paint it. Looks like it has been sitting a long time.

I already have a decent sized garden. My rotor tiller threw a rod this summer. I figured I would put my Garden Mark to work plowing the garden this spring. I have some really sandy soil so this plow will have it easy.20170917_134807.jpg

The moldboard and share will work best when polished up.  Clean them up really well but only put something on to protect them, won't plow well until it wears off.

 

You can grease them.  I like a coat of grey primer because it doesn't get on stuff and it wears right off when it enters the soil.

If you can find one get a soft brick to polish up the molboard.  Seems I always have a sticky spot when I start to plow and the brick will polish it right up.  Soft brick are hard to come up with in this area any more.

I have piles of all kinds of bricks. The softest would be those old reclaims. I will have to remember that trick when I start plowing.

You need a brick like they use to clean the grill in a restaurant. May be available at restaurant supply store.

The disc wouldn't turn. I had a hard time getting these rusted bolts off. I have everything soaking in vinegar to get the rust off.20180401_191537.jpg 20180401_195158.jpg

Good news is, the bolt will spin again. I probably spent too much time polishing the head of a 50 year old bolt. Oh, well it looks good.20180404_121100.jpg

Glad to hear that! That plow looks like a has a decent point on it yet. A wire wheel will clean most of that rust off the moldboard.

I'm thinking about getting it media blasted. The weather here has been pretty bad here this spring. I'm just getting started on fixing this old plow. Are these discs supposed to have a sharp edge? I put a very sharp edge on mine.

Planning to pick up a plow this week. It was last used many years ago, so I am expecting to have to do the same rust removal before using.

I did some calling around and got a few quotes on media blasting. $100 seems like an average price for my area.
