Refurbishing a sickle bar

Postby Bill Hudson » Fri May 21, 2021 5:39 pm

This is a Youtube channel I watch every week, simply because I really appreciate his craftsmanship. This week he made a detour from his usual activities and refurbed an International 1000 sickle bar. He really fine tuned the ledger plate adjustment in a manner I have not seen before. Take a look and see what you think.

I agree! He needs to talk a little more about what he’s doing, though.

Impressive work. Too bad he didn't have a better picture of an outer shoe.
