The back step kept the saw blade aligned, and turning made a nice smooth cut. So after cutting it I didn't even have to dress it off. Put it on the alternator and checked it by spinning and it was perfectly true!
That's the difference in a True mechanic and a R&R ,mechanic ,,remove and replace

I bought a 60" Swisher last year and every time I mow it's like having your own Tilt-A-Whirl! I have lots of banks to mow so you get to go up, do a 180 and back down. Wheeeee!

You own more lawn mowers then I ever will in a lifetime perios lol and not just movers riding mowers and a tractor. Im not making fun I just wish I had a lawn to mow even as much as I despise lawn care.

I basically havent done anything loafed around today, its been raining hard the last coupld of days here. I did manage to get myself to work to turn in my LOA papers thats it. This back deal really sucks it has improved tremendously since two weeks ago after my esi shot but I stretched today and I had to stop mid stretch because it started hurting everywhere. Maybe tonight ill work on something piddly like surround speakers in the living room or something.

Lawn Mowers 'n' stuff today, too! (No John Quee -- oops I mean no John Deere! ) stuff - just the ol' Craftsman 21 HP w rear baggers , plus a "White" 6hp self propelled for the spots the Crapsman can't get into and a couple of "weedwackers". And yes, that's what I did today. Even managed to get the lil garden tractor stuck in a rut left by a log truck !

Maybe to morrow I can get back onto doing something that is NOT yard and lawn-related!

Did a little repair on the Austin gasser this morning. Had to weld a cracked bracket that the bolts separated on. Thought lockwashers would never let them back off, but they didn't, so I replaced them with nylock nuts and octite on the threads too. Then a little weld on the braket that started to crack when the bolts let the bracket work.
After that I fabbed up the linkage for my Falcon's tunnel ram carbs. Used 1/4" aluminum rod, and turned it down to thread on 10-32 heims. Made a piece to connect the carbs, and another from the front carb to the bug catcher scoops butterflies.

Got the car prepped to hopefully sell tomorrow. The special with this car is on the oposite side of special. Its been a pita from day one and all the way until today. I ended up cutting my hand an inch long and really deep...the kind that opening your hand it flexes open. The ONLY benefit will be space to actually lay out and organize parts. Ugh hopefully things will look up for the better after tomorrow

today is basketball at the gym. it's my favorite work out ever. Just yesterday a guy I play with asked me to be the starting point guard for an adult league. AWESOME! So now I'm stepping up my exercises and trying to go out with him so we can build some team chemistry, and more importantly, so I can prove to them I can dribble the ball up court and control the tempo. Pretty cool to know that they'd want a 38 year old undersized basketball player for hustle when the rest of the team is in their early 20's and all over 6'. It really says a lot about my effort and stamina. So expect a silly youtube video and I'll leave it unedited so you can see the energy I bring, which I promise you will stand out. I'm all over the place on the court and all that exercising and leg lifts and all that are paying back in FUN~!
