 The pointy sticks as you call them or sighting poles. Before you start to plough, you set them out in a line along where your first furrow will be. 1st in front of the centre of the intended furrow. 2nd halfway down the plot and 3rd at the far end.

 

Cool!  @WHX12 that’s what we are missing at our plow days!  I’ll have to have uncle Roger make some of those.  I still think that the jousting is a great idea...I could see @Rp.wh in one of those iron suits riding on the Raider:ROTF:

 

@Stormin  great job on the weights! Very ingenious and a great cost effective way to get what you need with what is around you.  Necessity is the mother of all genius!  They look good too...:handgestures-thumbupright:

Since I do not have a plow never thought about driving in a straight line. 

Do you think you could drive in a straight line if you needed to?:teasing-poke::hide:

Tyres are 700 x 12. Without going out for a look and it's dark and freezing, don't remember make. I'll have a look tomorrow.

  I've been wanting some more lead to finally add a bit more weight. Eldest son-in-law said he had some old lead from roofing work done on his house. So I went over for it last week. I just wanted about 40-50lb but came home with around 400lb. I think some could be getting weighted in. Keep costs down. :D

   Up to the farm this morning and out with the oxy/acet and soon had more lead added. More by good luck than judgement, they have ended up the same weight. 56lb.

  A couple of plastic bucket lids to replace the existing ones and some self drilling/tapping roof screws.

  Quick spray with primer.

 They'll get another coat of primer and a couple of top coats before I refit them.

Done a bit of a mod. The lid covers stuck out a little from the tyres. Possibly, (most likely), would catch the trailer sides. So off with the lids and after some filler. Not perfect but they'll do the job.

 Now all I have to do is refit them.

Re-fitted them today and also gave them a little test pulling my saw bench. Before, I had to use my Disco to move it, as tractor wheels would just dig holes in the stones. Pulled it up into the yard with no wheel slip whatsoever. :)5a7dc6f7243b3_DSCF0008(3).JPG.ea37c0cd362082f7e300b3cfe7c38444.JPG

Do you plow competitively? I've been to New Zealand, and Norway for world championship competitions. An education in its self.

I only plough for fun mainly, but do enter my home vintage clubs annual match. Went to the World Champoinship here in Yorkshire. Just a visitor mind.
