I get the magazine "Farm Show" magazine. It's basically a compilation of farmers showing or selling their solutions to common farming problems.
There was a neat product in the magazine by a company named Repair Tech. Here is their info:
1434 E Benge Rd
FORT GIBSON, OK 74434
Tel: 888 478 4558
The product is a set of 'carbonized steel rods and plates' that you can use to fix used holes or worn ends on plates, such as bucket edges. You place the size of rod you want the finished hole to be into the hole. Clamp it in with a carbonized plate on the underside, then fill in weld in the worn out section of the hole. You can then hammer out the rod after you are done, leaving the finished hole. For an edge of a plate, it would be the same idea.
It sounds interesting, has anyone tried it or something similar?
