My Qualcast B1 pushmower

Just finished having an attempt at restoring a Qualcast B1 pushmower. Any advice/comments appreciated.  Not sure what to do with it now, sell or keep.

Use it , save the planet and keep fit !  Interesting that it has a “split cylinder” which appeared again on the electric Concordes of the 1960s.  I’ve got a Q7 which is similar to yours other than having a conventional cylinder. It's complete and working  with much of its original paint in tact and came to me in a job lot of 14 mowers . It’s not really my thing so if you want to add to your Qualcast family send me a PM.

Thanks wristpin, yes I  will use it. It has some manufacturers markings on the underside. B15, S2 and 72 on the underside plate. Not sure if the '72'  is the year it was made.
