Working on cleaning the other seed hopper and the spring clip on the lid was broken. I got a piece of spring steel from a strap that was on a pallet and used it. Luckily the other side was still intact so I had a pattern to go by.

Got the press wheels back from powdercoat. They burned them, blasted them, primed them & painted them Cat yellow. Put a little WD-40 on the rubber and slid it back on.

I'm ready to plant corn now, just can't fertilize with it.........yet. I set it as far out as I could get it so I can cultivate with the Cub when I do plant with it. It only goes out to 42" centers, the Cub is set on 44". Close enough.

This planter had a piece of plastic on one of the skids, the other side was gone but the bolts were there. It was worn out! I got to looking around the shop and found some 5/16" UHMW and ask the boss about it, he said cut what you need. Got the sharpie and the skil saw and drill and countersink and wha-la!

Hopper repair has begun. Boss man gave me a piece of steel that's been laying around for a while. I got both ends done so far.
