    Obviously the plow is a Dearborn 10-1...plenty out there..I've got a completely redone 10-8. If the shears/points are good, keep it...if they are worn out..good luck finding any more for almost any price. As far as the disk, grease it up and pull it.. good luck. BobG in VA

    I have a Dearborn plow I need shares for it, I searched everywhere for them and couldn't find them.

    So I decided I would make a set for my self, I have drawn up a set in my CAD software of what I think new shares would be like (I dont have a picture of them new I am working on what I have left and a lot of guessing).

    Does anyone know where I could get a picture of what the shares looked like originally? Measurements?

    And do you think there would be any market for making the shares for others?

    thank you Ridgewalker,

    does anyone know what is the logic on shares that curve down to a point vs flat like a razor?

    I think your asking about the "scotch bottom" plow. IIRC these are used to turn the sod over better on wet ground. I can remember seeing a few of these as a kid but have never seen one used. Probably real good in wet, boggy conditons. I believe that the sod remains partially attached to the ground via its roots which rolls the sod better. Thus turned the ground dries out and kills the exposed roots....and the operator would later follow with a disc or other implement.

    Great to see that old sales literature Ridgewalker! Nice read compared to today's literature....where you may only get 1 picture.
