    Just before you wear it down to the bolts.

    That's what i do. Don't know if he's a rookie and I don't want him to wreck his plow.

    This past season, I kept rubbing my finger underneath to feel the distance between the cutting edge & plow. Around the end of February I figured I could finish the season out w/ about 3/8" left.

    Sooo...When are the Chinese molded cutting edge knock off's coming out? (of course I'm only kidding Boss ;) )
