:techie-ebay:, or if you're up to it an old car/truck leaf spring will wear better than most anything you can buy that's what I have welded on mine, Jeff.

I was thinking Lowes, flat bar.

I like the spring idea but, wouldn't weld it on.

3" flat bar, wide, would last twice as long as the standard edge. :handgestures-thumbupright:

I should have made myself a little more clear, welded to the existing worn edge not to the moldboard, please forgive my poor looking welds but they seems to be holding up just fine, Jeff.

Hillbilly:

 

I have one, not needed, 48" plow the PO wore to, almost, the edge mounting holes.

I flipped the edge, works well.

 

I'm thinking, stitch weld the edge to the moldboard.

Then drill the 3" wide flatbar to bolt on.

I use stainless bolts and Never-Seez on all threads.  WD-40 (water displacement) or any oil along the cutting edge top side so it

runs between the moldboard and the bolted edge. Plow is always set down on wood blocks when in my barn, out of puddles. :handgestures-thumbupright:

To save wear and tear on my asphalt drive way, I purchased a Heavy Duty Plastic (HV Yada-Ya) edge for my plow blade wear edge a couple of years ago from eBay. It's worked well but not sure if it will last this winter and is not wide enough to flip.  Have read lots of posts with folks using conveyor belt strips for wear edges, deck seals, and a host of other uses. Wanted to give it a try but could not locate a source with reasonable shipping.

 

Saw an an ad on CL from a place selling used Fire Hose with additional "re-purposed materials."  They have conveyor belt strips 6"W X 10'L X 1/2" Thick listed for 40 USD and free shipping.  Think it would work well with enough material to make two edges fora 48" blade.   Going to place an order today and check it out.

That would be a radial with studs, only in the winter. AKA the squeegee effect. :text-imsorry:

Tire Tread...  Now why didn't I think of that!

Looks like it would do the trick and cheap too.
