    Did you ever figure out the radius? I'm trying to clean up a plow I made 8.5' from 7' a few years ago.

    measure from top of moldboard to bottom write that measurement down as H. tape a string top of moldboard to bottom, measure the gap from string to center of moldboard, write this down as W.

    Use:
    H + W^2 = Radius
    2 + 8H
