I was buzzing around in the smaller wing mower,
and smacked a hidden trap.
After all these hours
you'd think I'd know every nook and cranny,..
But dirt moves and wadayado.
This gave me a good slam bang,
I wondered why it wasn't cutting grass anymore!!
But what a great excuse
to pound out a quick metal patch,
while also brushing up my hack repair skills.
This wood wedge
is probably how Stonehenge was built.
Typical cardboard template
and an old scrap bracket for donor steel.
It's been hot,
and getting showered with sparks wasn't happening,
so far welds were doubled up outside,
and only a few small beads inside.
I think it will hold.
The bracket had a handy outcrop piece, reutilized as a stiffener to the banged up inner vane.
Here's a re-enactment of the boom boom.
Even at 5-8 mph it was a jolt!
Smacking something hidden
doesnt give much to talk chit about.
fills a diesel machine with gas,
that's another story...
