Decisions,decisions...I have that Dearborn two 12" that I got at the local scrapper to get a coulter assembly off of. I sold the slat moldboards off of it, Tony brought up the idea of making a single bottom out of it,although I would still be stuck with the Dearborn prior model style headstock and cross bar assembly because I can not find any Fergusons being parted out. I'm sitting there looking at an extra beam and then it hits me. I could take my two 14" MF 62 and make a three bottom out of it. The beams are the same dimensionally. I would just have to get a machine shop to make me the diagonal braces as they are no longer available from MF. The. I turn and look at my Ferguson 2 12" I bought a while back and I could make a three bottom 12" Ferguson and then I would already have one diagonal brace. I would just need one more. I'm leaning more towards making a three 14" out of it. Yes Tony...coulters and Then just make a single 16" out of the rest of the Dearborn. You can't touch a single 16" around here. The local dealers around here get $400.00 to $500.00 for a good older single bottom.

Yeah, but another brace would be needed alright, a good man with a torch could cobble one up, till you found what's left of a ... third extra plow? Gosh your yard will look like mine!! Yeah 2 bottoms are all over and cheap, ones and three's are rare and pricey up here. Since your 175 can handle it, you might as well make use of the now extra frame/beam and moldboard. Draw a blueprint of your idea and show it to some handy friends... 150 years ago we'd look for a slab of oak or hickory....

Tony, did I understand you correctly? 150 years ago YOU would have looked for some Oak or Hickory. LOL Now I understand you a little better. Keep looking. See you in 16 more days at the best Tractor Show in Lagrange, In.

Yeaaaaahhhh... I was still wearing diapers and they'd get caught up in brush and twigs. no good wearing those things in the woods. By the 1880's my mom got me long pants for Christmas.... really tho, I have 2 walking plows made with wooden beams. Trying to keep them preserved as much as I can... I like horse drawn stuff... ALMOST as much as I like fergie stuff... had to thro that in...
BTW, I hope to be there Tuesday PM or Wed AM if I can. So have some jobs lined up for me!!! I'm chompin on the bit here!!!!

Enjoy your self I am sure I won't be there until Wednesday at the earliest. If I knew you was coming early I would have had you get in touch with Miner and the both of you could have gotten my 57 Red and Grey TO 35 finished for the show. However I know it won't get done until probably next year. Hey I am working on it, a little. Have to run parts to the chroming company this week.
