That has to be the first garden tractor.  No mowing deck?

Another good day. The air grinder works great. All I had to do to it
was change the end to fit my hose. Even the wire brush is good.
The saw blade and chain came off another good looking Homelite
XL saw. The chain looks newish. I did now need another saw so I
only took the blade and chain. The coil is off a tecumseh engine.
Big $$$ today.

I'm not crazy about the air switch on the grinder. If this thing ever got wrapped up in you shirt
I think you would be in a world of trouble. When it's on it's on. If you let it go it's still on.
But it does do a good job... Maybe I'll hook it up to a foot controlled air switch.

That old end grinder is typical of the stuff in industrial use about 50 years ago . It takes a lot of air volume to run one of those style .

Yea it had a 1/2 air connection on it. I dropped it down to 3/8 and it still worked.
I wont use it a lot but it will come in handy for some jobs. I have a large 5hp compressor.

When I worked as a welder at Baldwin-Lima -Hamilton a former maker of the Shay locomotives those had 3/4" lines as did all the hand grinders .Of course the plant had a huge supply of compressed air .
A few of those right angle grinders got " liberated " Ingersoll -Rand good ones .Problem was most peoples air compressor could not  supply enough air to run more than a few minutes .
I've got a 5 HP myself dumping into  two 60 gallon tanks at 160 PSI .I've got big air grinders but I seldom use them because the electric is less hassle and the lack of the exhaust air doesn't freeze your fingers .Those dang things will make you go deaf too, loud .

Yesterdays finds.

This is the chainsaw that I took the blade and chain off of last week.
The saw was still there saying (take me.... take me...) so I brought it home.
I put gas in it and cleaned it up a little and put the blade and chain back
on it and put gas in the tank. It started right up and ran fine for about 30 min.
Then the coil died, It looks and runs good enough that I'm going to wait for
another saw to come into the yard to rob a coil off of.
The blue thing on the left is a 1" impact gun. All that was wrong with that
was that the trigger was stuck. I needed to remove the handle to get it
unstuck. But now it runs fine. It's the best sounding impact I ever heard.
It sounds just like a single cly John Deere tractor when running.
In the middle is some very expensive TV or stereo  wires.
Not a bad day...

Yep a Vise holder and a tool holder. Many of my tools just slid into the hitch.
I have them on all my work benches.  I keep many tools under the bench and
just pull out what I need at the time and pin it fast. Saves a lot of room.

Have you tried testing the impact driver for torque?

Not the right way... I'm afraid of braking my 1/2" sockets.
But it does all I need it to do.
