  • plow share paint....
  • Thinking about getting the plow ready to play in the dirt in another....too dang long,
    Just curious as to what the going opinion is as to keeping plow shares from rusting after I get them shined up? Any ideas on how to do that without plowing? At least no plowing in my mud currently.
    I figure to get one of these plows cleaned up and painted and drop it for sale for $400. Pretty sells. All I need is someone with just as large a case of spring fever, Two months early.

  • Probably paint is the best but I've been using my wife's canola oil she uses for cooking on the plows I keep inside. Don't really want to hit them with gear oil and plow the soil that I going to be eating the Veggies from.

  • Grease use to be the norm but not today what with EPA regs on ground contaminants. Like ALCT says, once you plow a few furrows, whatever is on the surface will scour off down to bare metal. I always use old spray paint, you know that 1/4 can that never got used up. It doesn't matter what color because it will just scour it off on the next usage.

  • My 2N which my father bought new, has the Ferguson 2 bottom 12" plow. When we would plow the garden, plow would shine like a new penny. We "painted" the plow with gear oil. That worked rather well in prohibiting rust. My choice now is to when done plowing, wash thoroughly, let dry in the sun. Spray the share and coulters with a clear lacquer. Yes, the lacquer will wear off during the next use, just follow the same procedure again.

  • I like the clear Raquel idea.
    I mean Lacquer.... Yeah. That's the stuff! Dang Spell check!!
    Not too fond of 90W and veggies. Welch, I think that will do it just fine. I mean, "Well", that should do it just fine....
    I'm starting to feel like I was born 1 million years BC. . .
