Page 149 - With the approach of the hot hours of midday, the vicious flies sapping the vitality from his faithful team, he has eased up on the work or quit the job. In using the tractor for plowing, there are none of these distressing conditions to be taken into consideration, nothing to think of but the quality of work done. It is possible to plow deep without thought of the added burden. Deep plowing may or may not be advisable.
Page 65 - ... you — I hope in equal amounts. Don't try to get the points sharp the first time around. Instead, bring them nearly to a point the whole length of the blade, then reverse the saw in the vise and repeat the procedure, this time bringing the teeth up sharp. If you point them up the first time, you are in danger of making them shorter when you hit them again from the other side.
Page 149 - Example : Suppose a plow rig has two 14inch bottoms, and the depth to be plowed is 6 inches. A cross section of each plow is therefore 14x6 inches, or 84 square inches. Twice this for two bottoms is 168 square inches. Since, in sandy soil, the pressure per square inch is three pounds : Then 168x3 lbs.= 504 Ibs.— draft in sandy soil.
