Tip & How-To about Garden
How to turn someones elses junk into your gold.....
I drove down the block one day with a friend of mine it just so happened it was a junk pickup day, everyone had put out things such as bycles, old wheel barrows, and to my liking...."old junk lawn mowers".
I told my friend , "hey I should take that critter home with me and make some side money of it", of course he laughed at me and told me I was nuts so that set the stage for a two + year side business.
I brought it home bought cheap cans of paint, black, green, and red, and a can of carburator cleaner along with a five gallon can full of fresh regular gasoline, again he said why are you wasting your time and money on this trash that somebody else tossed because it was garbage?
I said to him, I will show you what my intentions are here in a minute, so home to my garage we went mower, gas, paint, carb. cleaner and a basic wrench set.
Pulled the mower out of the back of my jeep and hosed it down real dirty, found it was a self propelled Sears Craftsman 22" rear bagger with a brand new mulching blade screwed on the shaft.
I pulled the fuel tank and safely disposed of the fuel and ckleaned the carb. fuel bowl, refilled the tank primed the carb, painted the handles black and deck red.
Pulled the chord, ran beautiful, advertised it on one of the popular websites and sold it for $85.00 all in two days.
Should have seen my friends face....LOL he was shocked and after that I have been doing this sort of side work for two and a half years making money left and right, even earned and saved enough to take the wife and I on a small 5 day cruise.
