My FIL owns that mower, mostly for soccer field upkeep and such.

He just bought a new push mower now too, and I have a lowly electric weed cutter for trimming around the house.  It is far from new.  One from the SBD borg of course.

still rust? how much? wonder if vinegar will do? works great just not as fast or toxic.
Iím not rude how much rust is left. I canít see it but I can feel it when I stick my finger in the top and feel the area around the opening.

I used Evapo- Rust. The only think that removes rust better is Krud Kutter and muratic acid. Check out this video from Project Farm. He did a comparison of several products including vinegar and Coke.

I think the new synthetics do a better job wetting out and maintaining thin film in bearings than traditional dead dino juice. I've been running synthetic in all flavors of worn my worn out junk for the last 10-15 years and haven't had a failure relating to lube yet. I worked on a big farm that run a lot of old junk equipment and the boss was a believer in the synthetic diet for everything. Never saw a failure due to oil there and it sold me on synthetic. We had a fleet of JD combines with 5k plus hard hours, they'd hardly push 10lbs of oil pressure at idle running 5w40 full synthetic schaeffers, but would run flat out 600 hrs a summer on a single oil change and then have clean analysis come back in the spring when we'd pull them out of the shed with the prior season's oil in them. Seems like engines are always a little quieter when switched over to synthetic to me at least. IDK mostly just a dumb country boy's opinion on it.

I can't imagine getting my legs swept at 100mph by that belt when you eat crap. Nuts sounds being generous about the mental condition of anybody that would strap themselves to that. I love it!

GUNSMITHING/ KNIFEMAKING / Re: Anyone carry CHL insurance

it easy to set back and critique at a distance but if the tables were turned I dont know that I would do much differently. Brandishing at trespassers will be a stretch but I've been damned surprised by what the hell is going on in this country

I carry a Million dollar umbrella policy for liabilty on my properties but it doesn't cover acts of civil unrest or riots. one of the reasons I got the CHL was to limit my risks but now I feel it may create other problems. Thats why I've been looking into the CHL insurance. risk management.

I want to see it pulling to waterskiers at 110 MPH, no F'ing way. You'd have to be the strongest sumbitch alive.

You don't hold on to the handle like a normal skier. You hold a strap behind you. Yes, these guys are clinically insane!

The gent in St. Louis is a well-to-do lawyer, and if he's smart he'll use this as a step stone case for the Supreme Court to settle these type of cases once and for all.

As for the question whether CHL insurance would have helped him -- I don't know for sure. He was on his property, open carried his rifle, and did point it at a potentially threatening crowd. I don't know whether such actions are covered under CC insurance.

Brandishing is legally iffy at best. Definitely not something you want to be doing on camera in a demcong cesspool at "civil rights" protesters ::) If either of these lawyers were smart they'd know this.

I doubt the mob was close enough to be considered an actual threat. I didn't see the guy pointing the rifle at anyone but the ones the woman was pointing that pistol at looked to be a fair distance away. Based on the video I've seen he might get away with it but she's screwed.

If their idiocy makes it to the US Supreme Court nothing good will come of it.
