Weight only comes in three varieties " I can lift it " , "the machine can lift it "
and "I do not have anything that will lift it"
Once an object leaves the first category the actual weight is just a number.

Right now, I can think of another variety related to your first one: I use to could lift it (to paraphrase Jeff Foxworthy) .

Finally got the plates back, I goter done. I do these blades in three pieces, more welding but easier to fit. Used .045 duel shield wire. I am under strict orders since I pined myself under a hopper that SWMBO must be present whenever I roll something heavy but I don't mind because she helps running the hoists and moving the chains.

1 test fit

2 had to bring out the beast for the bevel

3 backup strips

4 Used my Harbor freight com a long for the outer plates

5 bottom weld (Sure is nice having two hoists)

I used a lot of Dual Shield Essb brand. Some days would burn 80 lbs of 1/16" off in 8 hrs. looking good.
