Scraper Bar Sticker Shock

Been Upgrading a 32" 10000 Series, And Found I needed a Scraper. Priced at $58. 95! For a Piece of Flat Metal? Instead went to the Local Metal Shop and they cut me a piece of 3/16 Stock, which I Drilled the Necessary 7 holes. Cost was under 7 bucks.

Jack...Murray or Noma scrapers are made of unobtainium, so I just go to Lowes or HD and get a three or four inch wide section of 1/8 and like yourself, make my own.

I have done the same thing using the older scraper for the template. If you get it wide enough, you can turn it around for twice as much wear. I think 3/4" was a typo.

When the soles of original Ariens steel skid shoes become too thin then I cut/grind some mild steel channel material to fashion new soles. A C-clamp is used to temporarily sandwich the replacement sole onto the original sole. A wire-feed welder is then used to stitch-weld the replacement sole to the skid shoe.

A wire-feed welder is well-adapted for use on a snowblower. In addition to re-soling Ariens skid shoes, I've weld-repaired the high-stress area on an Ariens 10M6 bucket (near the scraper bar-ends). My welder can do MIG process but I find that flux-core wire is good enough for a sheet metal bucket repair or to make a fancy wingnut for the discharge chute deflector. You can find a simple 120 VAC flux-core wire-feed welder on Craigslist for well under $200 that will fuse up to 3/16" steel. It opens up a world of repair possibilities and special tool fabrication. https://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/tl...027195523.html

PS A good source of steel angle iron is to find an old metal bed frame that has been discarded.
