Back in February, MachinistBlog contributor Mikey won an essay contest there with his post, Honest – all I ever wanted to do was make some stuff…, which is a must-read for anybody who’s thinking about getting into hobby machining. And it includes a picture of this beautifully rebuilt mower. Mikey says:

My Tru-Cut P-20S reel mower [was] restored to like-new condition for under $400.00 in my shop. Unlike its $1700.00 new counterpart, this one has precision bearings, stainless fasteners, and a reconditioned motor that runs great. Restorations like this are simple for a hobby machinist. Like I said, you can make stuff.
