Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers

Hi I'm new here

Hi everybody, just thought I would introduce myself. I am currently rebuilding a Webb AB173 which I rescued from my mothers shed. It actually has sentimental attachment due to my father having been an engineering apprentice at the Webb factory & I remember him pointing out a simple part that he had to design and draw up etc ready to be produced.

Welcome aboard.

It's nice to hear you're taking on a restoration like this. It warms my heart to hear that. Your father would be proud of you.

It reminds me of a few restorations I've undertaken where machines have come from homes where their owners have departed. I always hope that each restoration in those cases, they're watching over me as I do them, taking great care to keep them alive, always wondering what stories they could tell.

We're glad to have you here. If you get stuck, we're all here able to help where we can.
