Dad got home from new mexico on Friday and brought a new toy home, nothing like new toys. we figured this would be a perfect thing for the kids to take apart and "restore" for the summer shows.

Great to see them interested so young. Hope they have fun with it. They look like they are ready to go. Thanks.                                                        Roger

Get 'em started young.

Be sure they don't loose a finger in that thing!

My youngest sister almost lost part of a finger to one of those.

Glad you're teaching them young, just be sure to point out the sharp spot. I was young and got a good cut on one... Lesson learned.

Tell them we wish them well and hope they enjoy the restore.

   I thought of that, losing fingers and all. so the first thing me and dad did was to remove the reel. this mower is actually a pretty neat piece made in folbate England.  hopefully I can get the two kids together enough to get this done before the tractor shows this year.
