Looking For Lumber and Messing With Old Mowers

Monday April 19, 2021 Guerneville CA.

Puttering around

I need some wood to build some kind of protection over my new well stuff. I thought I remembered some lumber up in an old shed up in the woods that might work so I needed to go check it out.

I jumped on the dirt bike and rode up through here to get to the shed.roadup


Here’s the old shed I rode up to.shed



There was some lumber there but it was a little on the large size for what I needed, so I decided to leave it for now and think about it for a bit and maybe find something more suitable. Maybe I should just use the lumber off the pallets.lumber


Out of gas

So I rode back home and thought I might mow some weeds around the house but I knew I was out of gas so I drove on down to town to get some.

On the way home I stopped to visit with John for a bit.

And when I got home I needed a nap.

That wasn’t going to work

After that I filled the old mower up with gas and pulled the rope about twice before it the rope wouldn’t return so I got some tools out and found out the recoil spring had broken. I tried to repair the spring but it would just break again so I gave up on that idea and  had another nap.mower



After the nap I wen online to look for a new mower motor but couldn’t find what I was looking for to replace this one. So I did some chair hopping around the yard when I realized I still had this mower/trimmer someone gave to me that I’ve never used so I thought maybe I’d give it a try, but not today.trimmer


I also realized the motor on the mower/trimmer was just what I needed on the other mower so if I don’t like using this machine I can put this engine on the other old mower.

I didn’t really have much energy today so I mostly just puttered around the yard with the chickens.

Nice day.

    That looks like an antique mower! I’m sure with your mechanical ability, you’ll have the mower(s) runnin’ in no time! :)
