fixing an old school manual mower

T’s dad picked this bad boy up at the auction.
Prob from the 50’s the thing had not cut grass in decades.
Asked Trixie and she hooked me up with a sharpening kit. My Bro in-law will use it for his 20 sq foot lawn.

The blades were pure rust. Took a couple hours to get it kicking. Did about 1/2 of my back yard with it. Added a cool handle since it was missing one. I used an angle grinder to round the edges and make it look all beat up. Darn fine job I did.

Used Phil’s grease to get it rocking.

Still manual mowers are a pain to use. Me like gas powered.
