:cheers:  You're welcome Moe.  I still got about three more sets to go too.  I have not scanned that bunch yet and irrigation problems kept me busy today.

  LOL,  this ain't no race,  like I said when I mailed them to you,  I'm in no hurry,  and to be honest I haven't looked at them in quite a while and I'm enjoying them as much as all of you guys are.

Those are every bit as cool as the others.  You can easily see the time and craftmanship that went into making them.

Looks like you did a great job freshening it up.  Hope it gives you another 35 years of service.

Here's a couple pics of the two I mentioned.  Newer 90's one on the left, 60's on the right.  The 60's still locks up rock solid.  It's just got more blocky features to the shape and longer sweep in the blade profile shape.

Thanks OE.  Don't see many of them around where I live.  My neighbor in Colorado had one but didn't use it much.  Your unit looks to be in good shape and perfect for mowing long runs along my driveway.  :)   Amazing that it is in good shape after 35 years.  Glad it works well for you.

I looked them up and did not know that Toro bought them 1986 and used the name until 2007.

Yeah Toro took over and in 1987 the kohler switched from the K series to the Magnum "M" series.  They are really good as it's basically the same engine just went to electronic ignition with the flywheel, instead of the points and condenser on the K series.  Any of them good and worth the effort to save.

Thanks guys!  That Bolens your son is restoring Moe is a solid machine well worth the effort.  He'll have a solid rig for 40 more years when he's done!  All hydro is really nice too. 

So Moe are going to keep the craftsman going as long as it can?  Or will it be retired?  Your son may have the rebuild process done when he's done with his.  It really is the deal where they just don't make like they used to.

My dad didn't give anybody anything when he checked out.  I got his tackle box and in it were a couple of knives.  One was a Buck folder, a 501 model with dark maroon micarta scales.  I don't use it a lot but it is a well made knife and I like the drop point blade and the way the hollow grind was done.
