    There is a dime size hole in the corner of my plow blade and i was wondering what i could do, if anything, to repair it. Just a short term repai to last to the end of the winter. I was thinkinking of getting the plow sand blasted+primed and then using some Bondo on the blade? Anyways i thought i would ask the experienced. Thanks and merry christmas!!!

    Bondo would break right off, get some sheet metal and have it welded on.

    If it is only a dime size hole I would just fill it with welding bead, and grind it smooth.

    Find someone with a MIG welder and have filled in, grinded "true" then paint. Patches over steel may not hold.

    if it were mine, i'd leave it alone until ur ready to blast it...not like it will affect your performance

    Mig weld that pin hole and grind it is the best way IMO.

    I'd leav it until spring then fix it. I have a tear in mine too. No effect on plowing.

    A quick repair is back it with some sheet steel then weld in the hole- this will weld the backing steel to it.

    Hang on until spring!!!!!!!!!

    :waving: justme, don't spend a ton of money on a simple repair. Wait til spring and either mig weld it and grind it smooth or have a small patch welded on. It has no effect right now on your plowing. I have spots on my plow that need help as well but, I'm waiting til spring to tear it down and get it like spanky new! Go make the money payup to pay for the repairs. unless you do your own?

    lorentz thanks for the offer. I just got a poly shield from a mail supplier the other day and im goingto try that for the winter, but i would like to try some sheet metal repair in the spring. i dont have access to a welder so if u could help out that would be awsome!! Anyways, i will let you know how things go. If you need any help with anything let me know. I deff. dont have a full route yet. Thanks.
