    Jeremy! Thanks for bringing a little life to our activity thread - and Lee for following up.
    Jeremy - what about making a meetup to come over and help you build the beds? You could also throw in the "fix my mower" as an aside.

    Good Jeremy,
    The oil sputter out when rope is pulled: this is a guess- carb float valve leaked and fuel ended up in the crankcase (way overfull)?
    This usually happens when anyone leaves the fuel turned on and hauls the equipment somewhere - road vibration dumps fuel past float valve--

    I have a lawn mower that when you pull the cord oil sputters out the side lol and 2 leaf blowers with an unknown status, actually the status is currently not working lol. No rush, ::shrugs:: gained a lilttle confidence this year with breathing life into my snowblower (carb clogged). Looking forward to learning much hands on with you guys and learning skills for repairs.

    I'm diving into self sufficiency and will be hooking rainbarrels up soon to irrigate the raised beds that will be made soon. So many projects, so little time...

    Members: Although it's a new direction "repair anything" A2YDIY can look into, it will be slow to take off. I've been in 100s of peoples homes and there is nothing I have not seen - usually as a result of something left un - repaired way too long. Message /email me to discuss your issue.
    Regards, Lee (yes, that's a homemade Kayak)

    Rory, not had a volunteer yet. I have been adding bits of information and invitations to everyone to look over what needs done in their home or garage.

    Members, for a while we will have to continue to use "Join the conversation" for group communication. We will have to "click" a few areas to have it come up. Thanks for your patience. Many in our group have fantastic skills to share. We don't have to be teachers as others will pick up skills just being in the area of something being demonstrated. That's some of how I gained confidence to enjoy out of the box analysis of most things. (had a great Dad) Let's find out who would like to share some of their skills.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
