My son starts his new part time job at the local mower shop tomorrow. He will be doing grunt work for a while, pick up / delivery, new mower assembly, etc.
He is a senior and has afternoons open now that basketball is over. He has taken small engine and auto mechanics at school. He has been helping me in the shop working on stuff for about 6 years and has done several projects of his own. I got him started on the foley belsaw small engine course about 4 years ago trying to get him going so he could do some summertime mower repair to earn extra money. Like most kids he would rather go have fun, so that part didnt go too far.
This should turn into a pretty good summertime job while he is in college and maybe he can find some part time stuff for when he is at school.
