    Just curious as to what ya'll used to make the 1 1/8" hole in the moldboard to mount pro wings. Did you work up to a large drill bit, holesaw, or torch?

    The instructions I got say measure up from the cutting edge 9 5/8 up and 4 1/2 from plow edge for the 11/8 hole. The wings aren't going to like those measurements. The 9 5/8 is ok but they want to be more like 8 1/2"in from the plow edge. Help!!!!
