the first sickle bar

Postby Drfting1 » Sun Jun 24, 2018 4:15 pm

Got a chance to spend time today and start the restoration of the first sickle bar (have 3 and each has an issue, going to make two good ones).
Sand blasted a lot of the small parts and get them primed and painted.. Then concentrated on the knife section.
Had fun with that, first time I played with rivits like that. Clear coated all the new knives so they don't rust right away, installed them then clear coated the whole thing so rivits don't rust. Won't be a show piece, just want it to look good when done... Then I hit the play hay field behind me and scuff it all up lol :tractor:

Just plain rust-oleum satin clear in can... Keeps it looking kind of natural and preserves a little
