Default John Deere Corn planter

Figured I'd share some pics from a job this morning.

Have a customer who called me last week wanting to get this running for before the weekend. Well by the time I got an annular cutter ordered it turned out I was able to get him up and running today. Its still a little early here to be putting corn in, but soon enough.

-Frozen ball socket
-the opposite side of the frame egged out the pin retainer (can't figure out why)
-centering jig to drill the holes
-I really like car jacks with a nut welded on instead of a handle
-one side done

The frozen ball socket removed with the good old air arc

New socket welded in

New bushings/really thick washers?

(piece of 1.5" inside 2.5" outside pipe cut 3/4" )


So I'd like to know how the ball sockets are made? Anybody know of a video perhaps?

Your drill did a right nice job of opening the holes where needed.

Nice fix. One a little slop starts, it will beat itself to death.

I tend to scour ebay for annulars when I know I'm going to need one.

That was a Hougen that said it was new. It looked new. Gave 1/3 what they go for new?




So can anyone tell me how they make the ball sockets? Same thing on 3pt arms on tractors.

I don't know of any videos or how they are made however you might try a search for "spherical rod end" I believe that is what they are called.

By the way, where did you get that rod end? I am planning to build a three point hitch for my tractor and I need a few of them.

These are metric, but they are out there.
