Does anyone know if Crecent Forge is still/back in business:?:

They are not in business any longer. The remainder of their stock/inventory was bought out by a company called Whitehorse Equipment out of Pennslyvania, and they have been moving some of the inventory to Pennsylvania. They are selling off some of the inventory that is leftover (and on hand) from the shop in Illinois. If you have a particular part/item that you are looking for you can get in touch with a gentleman by the name of Vernon Schrock.
You can look through their on-line catalog http://members.peak.org/~crescentforge/ ... s_page.htm
and get the numbers of the parts that you are looking for and then give Vernon a call. They do not have every part and item available, but they do have a lot. To the best of my knowledge, they do not have any more shares for the 193 plow. I was able to get a couple of those and some heels and a trash plate as well when I called. Vernon had said that they still have a lot on hand, but you need to call and inquire about what exactly is available. Hopefully this is helpful.

Whitehorse also has the tooling, if I am not mistaken.
I read on another website that they are trying to find out what people want, in order to start producing some parts again.

Matt, could you elaborate on the company name? Maybe a phone number? I will check them out. Thanks

Tried the Whitehorse number and got their answering service. I will call back again when I know that I will be near my phone when they return my call. I figure others on here might need/want some pieces also! I will post up and thanks for the info.

I think they are planning to move some of the equipment and begin manufacturing some product.
I scored a couple 0552 shares and landslide heels before the move.

I too, scored 2 0746C shares after a 5 year search
With thanks to grasser

I updated the Specialty Services
page for Crescent Forge with the information Chriswell has posted for contact info. When the final information is available, would appreciate it guys if someone lets me know so I can update the page again.

As long as you are updating the Specialty Services page, you can remove Metzger Parts of Waterloo, Illinois for carb floats. They closed down a few months ago.

Yup, got that updated as well. Seems the list is shrinking instead of growing.

I called Whitehorse and they need specific parts numbers. My moldboard is a one piece with share. IH515708R1. Land slide. 515660R1. I can't make out the numbers on the share. I figure that this moldboard will be impossible or near impossible to get. What parts numbers will interchange with the Plow Chief. I would put the Super Plow Chief but I would that mean changing the frog.

The two numbers that you have given:
These two numbers are listed as being for the 12" Plow Chief on the Crescent Forge website:
IH515708R1 is the Crescent Forge 515708
515660R1 is the Crescent Forge 515660 (with heel)
Both of these numbers are listed as being for the 12" Plow Chief, their website only lists one blade share for the 12" Plow Chief, 515714. They also list a spear point for the Plow Chief as 515640.http://members.peak.org/~crescentforge/ ... s_page.htm

I will give them a try both Crescent Forge and Whitehorse tomorrow and see what is available. I will post up when I find out what is going on! Thanks for all the good infor one the numbers Criswell!

I just talked with Mr. King at Whitehorse, seems they are the one's that bought Crescent Forge. They are in the process of finding a building to put the manfacturing of plow parts in. (Being a real estate broker here in NC I tried to get them to move here with no luck.) My understanding is they will have most if not all parts for the parts numbers on the Crescent
Forge site. The parts they have are very limited for now.
