Ken, that is really a beautiful restoration. Have you ever considered a rust inhibitor after sandblasting/cleaning and before beginning the painting? I've used OSPHO very satisfactorily on projects. It gets into small spaces/cracks where cleaning is virtually impossible and seals the surface before painting.

Nice restoration! I do have a question, I am looking for decals for my plow as well as my other implements. Everyone mentions this company TST but I can't find anything on them. Do you have a website or contact info for them?

I just want to say this thread was a life saver when I was putting my 193 back together, The pictures alone we're worth their weight in gold.

Nice! I did mine this past summer. Found out yesterday why everyone said to not paint the plow face - it was such a pretty blue! After some late fall plowing yesterday (my land is primarily sandy loam), the plow face was nice and shiny steel - very little blue paint left on it. I just oiled it up and put 'er away until spring.

I enjoyed your restoration - it looks great. A note: I recently restored my Cub-22 sickle mower and found that the reverse thread nut that holds the pitman on was made in Canada as well.

Yep. Pretty much wasted paint on the face. Axle grease works well too.

Currently using left overs from rattle can spray paint, any available color.

Used axle grease on the farm. Didn't have spray cans of paint back then.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I coat my moldboard with linseed oil. It works well, and I don't have to worry about cleaning it off before I put it in the ground. I would never want to put a plow back in the ground with grease or petroleum oil on it...

I never understood that, people say they don't want oil or grease on the ground when it comes from the ground. When I was a kid they used to put burnt motor oil on the dirt roads around home to keep the dust down then the EPA got involved :lol:

I don't mind oil where it belongs, namely thousands of feet underground or in constructed infrastructure to contain it. But I don't want it in my food or water. The detrimental effects are well proven.

Yep, I agree - the amount of oil I put on the plowface is NOT polluting the environment! Seriously. It's not. :lol:

I too remember living on a farm in very rural Iowa in the mid '50's and the county sprayed used motor oil on the dirt roads to keep the dust down. Yeah, THAT may have been a tad over the top environmentally, I grant you. But the little bit of 3-1 oil I put on a paper towel to retard rust on my plow? Not.

:thumbsup: Comming out very nice! Once I finish the pieces I have now, a 193 is on my list of implements I would like to restore, already keeping an eye open for one if one pops up at right price, hopefully I'll have one by summer... Can't wait to see your finished plow
