Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers
Hi folks. Managed to damage my ATCO 1264 mower this afternoon. Gutted as I really enjoy this mower. What might be the best way to make a repair please. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Oh B*****r . Either search for a scrapper / donor or consult a proper welder with a view to tig welding.
That's a shame, possibly strong glue? or a donor machine, I did acquire one for the Atco Centenary display so could possibly let it go.
Hi Angus. Thanks for your thoughts on a solution. I will see who does TIG welding locally and hopefully they can repair it, if not, hopefully I can source another machine. Thanks again. Rob
Hi Clive. Thanks for your reply, Angus thinks a TIG weld might offer a solution so am going to look into that next week. However, I would be interested in knowing how much you would like for your 1264 if you are happy to part with it please?, perhaps drop me an e mail, text or Whats App when it is convenient. Thanks again for your reply. Cheers. Rob
Belt and Braces job on my ATCO....A local welder is going to have a go at repairing it and I have taken up Clive on his offer of another machine, well, you can't ever have enough old lawn mowers!!
