Tarpen.

So this is my tarpen 15L I purchased from a reclamation yard. Spindle was jammed in the flywheel, wiring was dangerous, thought it was dead but after dad rewired it and i rebored flywheel the little tarpen lives on. In the picture is a Suffolk super swift 12 inch for scale.

 

If I messed up picture sizes I hope olc admin will rectify.

Could be the Paul I heard

Could be the Paul I heard about from my transfer supplier, hopefully helping get the transfer for the handle. I haven't been collecting mowers for very long but I do like the little surprises that occasionally pop up from knowhere. I'm a big Suffolk fan but the little tarpens are so strange I'll be looking for more.
