What is SCH?

Heaven compared to what is there stock.................No screwing around with that setup, put it on and it works.  Put it on a 920 Deere head once, convinced me if I ever have anything with sickles on it, that setup is going on there.  I think it would be really nice on a haybine.

We had Deere number 5 and number 8 mowers when I was growing up. We had a tool for laying a sickle in to remove and replace sections, and to lay guards in to remove and replace ledger plates.

If you would just sell me that combo, I will give it a nice place parked inside...

She says she would like to spend her winters inside. ?

She tells me she wouldn't even mind the 20 hour ride to get there. ???

She would be most welcome.  Tell her to head this way, I'll clear out a spot!

Like this Johnson Sickle Servicer?

I use the Crary self adjusting spring loaded hold downs. Both on my bean head and sickle mower. It makes a world of difference keeping that knife down tight on the guards.

I remembered the tool we had for riveting ledger plates when I saw this post,but didn't know if I still had it or where it was.  I found it in the old shop today.  You clamped it in the vise to hold the guard while you riveted the ledger plate in.  Let's just say I was happy when we got double guards without ledger plates
