Re: Cub Plow with Canadian Bottom?

Weather and time finally worked in my favor and I got the pictures of the plow bottoms. The first 2 pictures are of the Rex bottom and the last 3 are of the Ace bottom.

I sprayed some WD-40 on the back of the Rex bottom to bring out the stenciling, there is not any visible stenciling on the Ace bottom, but I suspect it has worn off and would be similar styling.

Been following this post and kept thinking I wish somebody would post a picture because I haven't got a clue what they're talking about.

Well I got my wish and I still haven't got a clue :? :roll: :lol:

Glad to finally see some pictures. Yes, your ace pictures show the same shear/point and moldboard as my 193 plow. I have sent some pics of mine to Rudi for him to post but he hasn't been on the forum much lately. Have been trying to find a source for replacement parts but no luck yet. Have posted the painted(stenciled) part #s for the ace in a previous post.

Thanks
Jerry

Ok from the land side to the point on the left (third pic., last post) doesn't look very wide. Did it take ten inches of soil? Wonder if it pulled easier than the cub plow? Thanks for the pictures. Brain is not as fogy.

cubbrian wrote:The moldboards are made in such a way as to only turn the sod over 1/2 or 3/4 depending on which one. The one in the picture appears to be the 8 inch "Rex" moldboard. They were supposedly used for certain types of soil that would become unworkable if the sod was completely turned over.


Unworkable if completely turned over?
Could one of the FC.com "Plow Kings" explain to the rest of us plow newbie's, under what conditions a guy would want this? I seems to recall somebody putting on a plow set up/demo school at one of the Cub gatherings. Wish I could attend. I would think the science of the plow is more in depth than people think. Learning tons here. Thanks.

The distance (width) from the landside across to the point is 9" as it appears in my pictures. This plow does turn the sod completely over against the previously plowed furrow. It works best or does the neatest job if I plow in second gear. Easily plows 6" deep. This is a cub 193 plow.

Well, in an effort to better understand why the different style bottom I recalled doing some research on an Oliver #19 wooden beam walking plow I purchased a little over a year ago and at that time I had found a book called The Oliver Plow Book: A Treatise on Plows and Plowing (1920). I remembered it had way more information than I needed to know. Looking it over again I found one of the sections was on moldboards. I scanned through that section and have a little better understanding of the different styles of moldboards now. The book is available as a free google ebook here:http://books.google.com/books/about/The_Oliver_Plow_Book.html?id=pSxJAAAAIAAJ
and with a neat lady reading it to you avaialble from The California Digital Library (hit the speaker button in the upper right corner of the book window) here: https://archive.org/details/oliverplowbooktr00bacorich
The moldboard section starts on page 97. Page 109 and 110 has what they call a Scotch type, that looks like the Canadian bottom to me, with an explanation of it's use. :{_}:
