Silens Messor lives outdoors and earns its keep

So i have owned this SM for years, she lives outside all year round and is used weekly to cut the grass. A few weeks ago i had some spare time so i gave her a repaint and service. I know shes not the correct colour and the box is wrong but she earns her keep and is out in all weather so i just thought she deserved a smarten up, not a restoration, just a smarten up

If faye would allow it, I

If faye would allow it, I would have a couple of my old machines in the garden as a permanent display, best I can get away with is leaving it a few hours before putting them away. Nice to use

Very nice to see another

Very nice to see another proper old mower. I'm not sure whether I'm brave enough to leave mine out overnight yet alone all year round ! I don't think Pippa would be overly eager to attract any more 'ornaments' in the garden.

Nothing short of Wow! 

Nothing short of Wow! 

When you think about it, we have been gifted with excellent examples from the industrial revolution over a wide spectrum of inventions, in a hundred plus years time our young generation will have only left behind old smart phones and plastic collectables.

Great stuff!! It's the basis

Great stuff!! It's the basis for my small collection, machines that actually work and do the job for which they were intended. Although a few have crept in over the years that do not strictly adhere to these rules :)
