    Just cut out a cardboard template to give to the shop doing the forming. A lot of times plows or dozer blades aren't a perfect radius, especially if worn or bent, so a template will get you very close.

    How thick was the material and what type of steel? Did you use a torch to heat it? Nice shop, by the way!

    No heat, I believe it was 16ga. I used the full sheet to help with muscling it and as I recall had a 4 inch channel or something I clamped along it, I figured out something, as I recall it took an hour or so. If I was going to roll it I would have it slightly undersized so I could spring it back against it, with 16 I could manage , heavier would likely be a problem.

    Cool

    Well its almost done. I just need to bolt the cutting edge on when it comes in. I used 14 ga sheetmetal a 2x4 and a hyd jack with a chain wraped around the plow and the metal jacked down using the chain on top of the jack. 3 jacks would have worked better for re adjustment reasons. My arbor press would have been great to use if i had it welded together. Cost was 64 bucks for the sheetmetal and 120 for the cutting edge with shipping and 10 bucks for the paint...Bob
