    Think that's for the 25's Roy. Correct me if I'm wrong but super Hydreins are different, depending on which boards Eamon has on loan.

    My super hydrein frogs have two sets of holes in, the previous owner used both types of board, and drilled them to suit.

    Not giving up are you? I was hoping you (and a few more) would be at Lichfield!

    No I've got 2, can't use them both and need the money for an old D4 I'm doing up

    Correct, I was forgetting that some prefer super hydreins, I think they will bolt to a standard hydrein frog though ?

    I may have had an odd frog, but I did have to make one new hole to fit the hydrein special board to it. I use the word make, as no drill I had would touch the job! Ended up blowing a hole with a plasma cutter! Nice thick washer covers the sins though!

    Sharpen a masonry bit up as an ordinary twist drill.
    If that still won't do it then weld a piece of EN8 round bar into a bigger hole and then drill that.
    Ransomes TS59 frames are hard to drill but I think that's more to do with what they are made of, having pockets of carbon, usually toward one face. which indicates to me that they were made from scrap, the carbon settling at a specific level.
    David Brown lift arms can be exceptionally hard.

    Blowing holes and big washers - gobsmacked. Hope you had good manners enough to weld the washer in place.

    I had thought of the masonry drill, but decided against it as the farm grindstone wouldnt touch a carbide turning tool, and its not my grinder! Washer will get welded in, next time the plough is repainted, its position is such that the body will have to be removed before I can see it, let alone get a rod there.
    KV and Ransomes material behaves in a similar manner, crystallising with the welding heat, and dropping apart when the bead cools! Stainless rod cures that though!
    Nuffield and Leyland bottom arms are almost drill proof, I sent some to the local engineers, they were not happy afterwards!

    Ya i had th old hydreins boards and i was told my saddles wouldnt fit
     
  12. correct if the boards are 25s,hydrein need a hydrein saddle
     
  13. extra hole needs to be drilled in the standard saddle ,easy enough to do,
