Hey guys... I am feeling kinda guilty. I was trying to be funny. That's not the same machine.

I was telling a neighbor about the project a few days ago. So yesterday, he shows up at the house with that snowblower and just gives it to me. Compared to the one I was working on, it is in a different league.  24" auger (compared to 20", so it cuts a bigger path), electric start, headlight, 6 forward & 2 reverse gears, power steering.

I figure it is time to retire the other project and use the motor for something that is more fun than a snowblower. My son is thinking go-cart.

Science is fun.

We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.

No need to feel guilty. I think you played it very well. You had me for all of two seconds before I thought "DOH!, That's a different machine!"

I get that a lot, jokes going right by people...

Now if only I could get a neighbor to give me a snowblower.
