making new grass board

Postby Drfting1 » Sun Aug 12, 2018 11:47 am

Well due to uncertain weather, going to do wood working today, going to cut out new board and hopefully make a new pitman, have a question on the grass board rod....Does it look bent properly? Owners manual has it looking kind of like this, but a lot of pictures I'm seeing, it has a wave to it. Did they make them both ways?.
Going with oak for the board, I know a lot use a lighter wood, doing it for the wood grain since I'm going to clear coat it... Have a cool idea to do with it I'll share when I'm done

The tip bends inwards so the cut grass will fall back towards the tractor.

New grass board cut.. Not 100% exact but close, would have been easier if I had a band saw, but made it with jigsaw, sander and router, now just have to give few coats tung oil
