It has been a busy winter. I started restoring a reel mower for my Waterloo 20 before Christmas. It was slow going. Lots of missing parts to make. Lots of worn out bearing & seals. Even more rust to remove.
Then in January, the wife asked me what I would be doing while she was away on a mission trip. I panicked and said "doing that bedroom reno project you've wanted done." She got all excited & that motivated her to complete the wallpaper project in the living room. That went extremely poorly, so the reno project became the living room. Off came the paneling, in went some overhead lighting & outlets, up went the drywall. It is day 50 or 60 (I've lost track). The reel mower project slid into the gaps when I was waiting for something to dry. We were ready for paint just before the wife left. She let me pick the colours, so I went with a colour I like: the factory green for the Waterloo tractors. Hence the "three projects, one colour" heading. Any other brave soles ever painted a room based on your favourite brand of tractor?
Anyway, the reel mower is complete, even if the living room is awaiting crown moulding & chair rail. Atleast, it would be if I could find some 7/32" x 1/2" round head rivets so I could re-attach the cutting bar. No one in Canada (or atleast my area of Canada) sells them. Anyone want to donate 10? Will pay parts, shipping & time.
