  • How to Bend PVC & Make Incredible Shapes

    On the larger pipe, you can use a heat gun on the outside of the pipe while the sand heats the inside. You should be able to get a better bend out of it. Careful of the fumes. Do it in a well ventilated area.

    Sharpen a Push Reel Mower

    I sharpened my recently restored Craftsman with the blade and gears swapped and tan it bacwards. You can actually feel tge blade moving more and mo r e freely. I purchased a reel mower sharpening kit with the grit in a jar. That old mower cuts grass like scissors now. Once it got sharpened i tightened it a bit more and added more grit to take off more uneven wear due to heavy rust for so many years. So I did this process twice. Switched tge gears and flipped the blade back around and replaced the tires and tried it out on Newspaper. It sliced the paper without ripping on evety area I tried. The mower cuts even thick patches of grass with ease.

    Restoring an Old Lawnmower, From TechShop

    I also restored my fathers old push reel mower about 3 yrars ago. I didn't have a sandblaster or powder coating booth or oven, so I hand sanded and cleaned each part with various wire wheels and sandpaper. I primed all the parts and painted each piece with spray paint. Then clear coated the paint job. I also two toned my mower. Its Red and Yellow. The wood roller was flat on one side so I had to build up the wood to make it round again. It made the roller not take a stain properly so I used some of my Faux paint skills to put some wood grain effects on it and all the wood parts. I didn't take a before picture, but it looked just as rusted as yours. After adjysting the blades they weren't cutting like scissors, so i purchashed a reel sharpener kit.

Rolled the blades backwards, I believe, to sharpen them, then reassembled it. All I could say was Wow! It could cut newspaper without a snag, the grass waz sliced like I had used sharp scissors, even when I wentover some thick patches. It is truly an amazing mower. Here is my finished Craftsman mower.
