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.
