That's 10hp fro $120 bks. It will probably need a little work on the shaft size though.
Have to play around with the const. spd. gov., too.

Still killer deal.

10 HP TECUMSEH ENGINE
New, Tecumseh horizontal engine built for driving electric generators. Cast iron sleeve, fixed speed governor. Low oil shutdown. Lighted on/off switch. Not for sale or use in California.
No offense to those in Cali... : But, any more left and you'll be in the Pacific.
Next thing you wont be able to wipe your own... Well you know.
Wait, can you still do that?

Thanks. I enjoy this, but I imagine a pro furniture maker would whip these out a whole lot faster than I do with my limited equipment and knowledge.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II






These are an engineered stone countertop with a hot pot burn. I had to Dremel out the particulates made clear by the heat, partially fill the voids with ultraviolet light activated varying colorants from my Invicon kit, then topcoat with catalyzed cyanoacrylate, scrape, and polish.



This is a close up of the filled particulates that polish much faster and higher than the estone with Steve’s Polishing Pro System. I had to knock ‘em down by hand with 4000 grit paper to get them to match again.



This is a close up of the final repair.



This is after the repairs with low-level light.



After repairs.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Just finished. Purchased 90 listed 225. Spent 2.5 months. Me plus part time laborer, plus roofer, siders, electrician, plumber, carpet, drywallers.

New: Roof, windows, some siding, decks, jacked up front of house and decks with new footings and posts, all wiring, all plumbing, kitchen and bath, all flooring. Finished non-countable square footage walk out basement and added half bath.

Kept most lath and plaster, cool box beam ceiling, most of the original cedar lap and shingle siding.

Realtors photos, I didn't take any yet. Stupidly didn't take before pics. It was a mess. Had new plumbing and wiring that we had to rip out. Kitchen and bath partial remodels were botched.

Before. I pulled the garage down with a strap to the Tundra and almost no gas


Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II-s-wa-lower.jpg
After. Replaced garage with BBQ deck off kitchen.

Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II-corner-before.jpg
Before. Columns were crumbling and rested on sunken brick footings.
