    OK folks the title says it all.
    I have an old fisher that is getting thin as tin foil in some places.
    Is there a way to beef it back up?
    I was plowing a dirt lot that ends in the woods the other night, when I piled the snow at the end, there was a small tree hung up in the blade.
    I thought it was just tangled up.
    But it had actually punched through the skin of the blade and was there for good. Til I pulled it out.

    Anyway, I 'm sure you get the picture.

    take it to a welding shop. they should be able to cut out the thin rusted out parts and weld in new steel.

    im not sure how much this will cost but im guessing a lot . might just be time for a new plow.

    Fisher blades are abundant in MA, just keep your eyes open and you will spot one. I see them all the time for around $100 or so.
