Hey, I forgot to mention that my dad brought home two Sears Roebuck and Co machines. One's a wood planer, and the others a wood shaper. I'll get some pics this weekend. That makes three Sears Roebuck machines for wood (we also have a table saw).

I took out my phone to snap a pic, as you can see in the first pic he is just looking straight at me, then the second pic he has his head down...you know what happened next right? The SOB charged me

Luckily I was right near the house, so I was able to run inside. That's when one my dog's, a little Boston Terrier, caught sight of it and chased it away I was actually more scared that it would trample my dog more than anything else, but hightailed it down the driveway and out the gate.

Ah, you let it get away. That thing would've made a dang good barbecue. Assuming you had an industrial size grill, and lots of friends.

I haven't had buffalo in like 14 years. Had it as a sandwich and it was done in a similar fashion to roast beef and it was really good.

We made jack-o-lanterns!
Guess what mine is?
The Briggs and Stratton logo!
Thought I'd show the trick or treaters how much I love Briggs!
Happy Halloween and STAY SAFE!

We'll be having slippery roads for a bit, since we are getting dumped on with snow right now. Hopefully in December I'll be buying a driver pulley and belt, then buy the driven later on.

After a couple of weeks of mid thirty degree Celsius weather, we finally cooled down and got some rain. It has been unbearable here.

Dude, that was your moment. And you ran away. This is not a story you will tell your grandkids.

Well, I just found out my old edger is the oldest piece of lawn equipment I have. serial reads 4243b, which I was told on another forum means 4th year of decade, 243rd calendar day (august 31). And some other clues showed the engine was built on august 31st 1984. Now I can get her running hopefully over Christmas break.

Hahah! My Sears tiller has your "young 'un" edger licked! Built in '77!
Your edger is a little more than a year older than my HiPo.
My 3 HP may be even older, but I'll never know since it had a blower housing swap.
I'm sure someone will pop in soon with a 50s cast iron Briggs....

Hey, I never said it was the oldest thing in existence, only that it was the oldest engine I have. And are the engines you mentioned Briggs, Tecumseh or something else. Mine has a Tecumseh H30 (3 horse) with the original, pretty much everything but the missing air cleaner and the coil's bad.

All of them are aluminum Briggs flatties.
5 HP on the tiller, my HiPo on the Hothead, and the 3 HP for the Radio rod.
Why do you ask? Looking for parts?

No, the only Briggs I have that needs parts is a junk ohv intek that needs too many (though the pressure washer pump that was hooked to it works like new). I'm not much of a Briggs fan myself. I have three Briggs engines, and only one of them runs. The other two are the aforementioned one which needs $108 of parts, and a push mower that keeps overheating. But I have been looking for a 5hp for a bit.

If you guys want old engines, just find an old Wisconsin and drop that on a kart.

Yeah, craigslist isn't that good in my area, and the newspaper classifieds suck. The good thing is that you can find push mowers and gc160 engines all day long, but they don't work on a gokart.

Well guys, got a little cat to replace Sammy. He spent almost all night last night in my lap, and when I had to use the restroom, he constantly cried! One of the reasons I mention this, is that the guy that gave it to me a couple of days ago, told me it was very antisocial.

I bought a pumpkin. This thing was $45, but I got it for $20. It's HUGE!!!!

I almost have all the parts to fix the Edge.
