You said a mouth full there.. One level of someones opinion of useable...

I kind of figured as much.. Not new to Ebay but was hopeful..

I am hopeful.. And besides that I might be an excellent learning lesson.. I've always wanted to learn how to cut gears..

The tough one will be the pinion gear as its helical cut..

I was to late.. I did email him and tell him how I felt about the exchange and how I felt shystered.. By the time I received the blower it was a few months after the auction. So no feedback..

Nice find.. I watched part of it and the lathe work I think I can handle.. The gear cutting not so sure yet.. I'll get the bushings made and the pinion bearings replaced then I'll see how things sound.. If all good I'll put it back together but if it's noisier than I like well then it will be gear time..

Helical gear on the bottom might be out of my realm of ability.. So will see.. Keep your fingers crossed..

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.
