Clogged Spark Arrester

Until a half an hour ago I didn't even know it existed  My 13 yr old weed wacker suddenly stopped working  It would start but not rev up .Everyone I spoke to said fuel.  I changed the fuel ,then the filter ,then line ,then primer bulb,then the vent,then the plug.  I was about to throw it in the corner because a new carb was probably more than I spent for the machine  when I bought it.
I tried You tube and wallah  there was the vid.
A little Mapp gas, let it cool, some lock- tite and started on third pull.

Lawn mower repair

New idler pulleys belt and tension spring  The paint has been peeling off this deck since day one of owning it  My son came by with a 110 volt stick welder and welded the right mounting post .It let go and precipitated the whole repair .I'm planning to sand blast the whole deck this winter and repaint it that famous yellow
New blades and a grease job are in  order as well.Its a miracle they cut.Didn't make the season.
