I have finally got back onto the mower rebuild!
I purchased a small sand blasting cabinet and dust extractor from the Hare and Forbes Machinery House 3-day sale a few weeks ago. Now I can start sandblasting the old paint and built-up rubbish from the outside of the engine casting, this should get things done a lot faster!
It’s a small sand blasting cabinet, but should be fine for these small parts.
Using a 25Kg bag of Garnet that I also bought from the sale, I have sandblasted the head of the Briggs & Stratton after plugging up the spark plug hole with an old sparkplug, it’s cleaning up quite nicely
I need to go over it a few more times to remove some little bits I missed, however I am quite happy with the results. I just hope I can find time to do the rest of it soon.
