Mowers have gotten way too high. I just bought a basic push mower with a bag fir 350. :rolleyes:

When assembling(which is not much)I had to drill out the holes in the handle to get the bolts thru. The tab on the rear to adjust the height is twisted and had to wrap with bailing wire to the handle to keep it from rubbing the back tire. I thought that's easier than trying to take it back to home depot and go thru all that. Bs that for all that money I had to modify it to work.

My 2 stroke Lawnboy started on the 1st pull again this year. This is it's 27th year, and I mow about an acre. Luckily my Heifer takes care of the rest of the property.

I got rid of 2 stroke equipment and went with battery. But my weed eater push mower with 5hp Briggs and straton lasted 12 plus years and still runs, just barely. So I thought oh well need a new one. Now I'm thinking of buying it a new motor( if I can)and start using it again. Lol

I rebuilt an old old lawnboy in high school small engines, brought it from the farm, hadn't been used in a longgg time. Didn't have to do much, but since it was a class I did take it all apart. Fired right up! The coolest lawn mower there as well, even with that loud green color. I like how it was shaped too.

I had an old Lawnboy in our machine shed for many years. My late mother, God rest her soul, decided one day to put it out for a scrap drive. I was not happy!!

don't ditch anything.....2 stroke or 4 if it's running rough. Put some seafoam in the gas. I thought my last weedeater was gonna explode from the screaming it was doing after it fired after 3 pulls. I literally ran to the fence and started trimming before it would explode lol. It didn't but you get my point.

These are Nielsen Transfer Screws, they are the same principle as a transfer punch except they can be threaded into a piece so you can put metal or wood against it to mark a bolt pattern. This 3 size set was about $36 shipped.

I’ll be using these on an inboard shock crossmember bracket to transfer the bolt pattern to the inside of my frame.

Got this led 4ft shop light at Wal-Mart for about 15 bucks or so. Need to hang it. Seems to be pretty Brite too.

Says lasts 44 years on the box. If so I'll be dead by then. Lol

Picked up a few things from Harbor Fright Friday while I was off. Been needing some big pry bars for a while now so picked up a medium and a big boy. Always need wiring and this 400+ ft of wire rack was only $41 so I scooped that. Needed a soldering iron, solder and some helping hands to replace the coil pack connectors on my Camry so grabbed those as well. And a contour gauge for work

Any of you guys have any Harbor Freight toolboxes? I'm seriously considering picking up their 56" roller cabinet in the next couple weeks. I'm slap full in my current 41" Sunex, to the point I'm stacking tools lol. This is just hobby stuff for me so I can't justify a Snap-off or anything expensive. The HF ones seem super well built for the price and I like that I can add a top/side cabinet/locker/etc later on without buying a whole new box.
