Fix it or toss it?

15 posts in this topic

I was just wondering how many of you guys preffer to fix something over tossing it? I am pretty mechanically inclinded and have resurected quite a few different things. Especially if I can get a shop manual for it, I will fix it. I even do 90% of my own car repairs.

On a side note, If it don't run and your gonna scrap it, let me know, I may be willing to tackle fixing it.

I fix it. If it can't be fixed I keep it for parts.

THATS why my 3 car garage holds 1 car and a boat.

I try to fix it. I am a little bit of a tree hugger in that I hate to have anything going to a landfil unnecessarily and using additional resources to replace it. I am also a bit of a cheap bugger so if I don't have to spend the money to replace it I won't.

Big Country's 10" auger bit was a bit much for the 49cc Mag 111 engine, heavy too.

Today we got Mark's auger ready for the Bash.

Very fitting for my Hillbilly friend.

Can't do this without those spare parts.

I'll call it a Mora Master Mag lll. 3M for short.

Pretty funny Frank but as long as it turns clockwise and cuts ice that is all that matters \:D

Cuts ice? Dude, with Franks sharpening skills that thing will put any new Jiffy or Eskimo to shame. You need a hole dug? Call BC at the Bash on channel 7 and I am there pal. BC

I fix 'em. Mostly because I enjoy doing it. I'm a carpenter by trade but am just as comftorble tearing down and rebuilding an engine as I am doing everything from form work to finish trim out on the job. Evan after I've finished something I'm always thinking of ways to improve it. Bad thing is I have a hard time saying no and seem to spend a lot of my time fixing stuff for my friends. Right now I've got several projects lined up in my shop that aren't mine.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
