  • Lawn mower fix.

    Here's another small project that i was the 3rd guy to work on it. It seems like i get it after everyone else has a shot at it. Oh well thats what i do best. I had to turn a new shaft on the lathe because the old one was all wore down in spots and it needed welded down farther so you wouldn't have to grind down the inside thus making it stronger...Bob

    pic 1 old shaft with ear cut off in bandsaw.
    pic 2 new shaft and ear. the new shaft was turned with a big end to weld around.
    pic 3 outside welded first to keep the inside flush.
    pic 4 inside welded then around the shaft on the outside.

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

      Good job metalmaster, kinda seems like a shame to put something that nice on a lawn mower. I wish I was skilled enough to run a lathe
