Your comment reminds me that in the 60's the welder was a new thing on the farm. Dad would weld two worn plow points together. He would also weld pieces of old dump rake teeth onto the edge of the shin piece. I remember welding old points on the edge of the shin pieces, and on landsides. I don't miss maintaining a moldboard plow! Haven't had one for almost 15 years.

I know how to sharpen plow shares. It's not as easy as it looks. It's hot and dirty hard work and the heal and the point need to line up when your done, then the point needs set for suction.I use a coal forge,anvil and the trip hammer when needed. Most shares now are being run too long and there isn't enough share left to draw back out to a point, then they need a new point welded on. There are a few other Blacksmiths in Illinois besides myself still sharpening plow shares.

Can you still get replacement noses and edges? Know of no place around anymore to get them. I have hammered out shares using that coal fired forge and anvile and just my body to swing that hammer. Could no longer do it. I could take a modern deep suck style share and rebuild any blacksmith type share with it with my knollage but the old body says no.
