My Mothers neighbor gave me this mower a couple of years ago and I told him I would get it fixed up before he died. He's 82 this year. His Dad bought it new in 1938 and he and his brother mowed with it till the late 50's. He said it has hung on the machine shed wall behind the combine for the last 50 years.

I have had little time to work on the Ranger, but when I had a few spare minutes I would work on this one. The planting is all finished and now I might be able to get back to work on the Ranger.

Just Beautiful...

When I hear "They don't make 'em like they used to" I'm reminded of machines like this!

I just finalized the transaction to buy the remaining Eclipse collection from a local collector. I got 6 Rocket power mowers and 12 Eclipse push mowers. I also got a truck-load of hard to find parts. Sorry, but there will be no pictures, my Grand-daughter has my camera at Camp. They were unloaded at the home farm this morning.
