I thought I would start another thread as I can't seem to upload the photos on my last post.
i have two early J&P cylinder mowers, an early pre war Maxees model and the rarer Major model with the serial number 71 stamped on it making it prewar too.
Interestingly, the Major (on the right) is the smaller of the two models and in my opinion is the better quality of the two models. Sadly I'd o not have the grass boxes for these two lawn mowers. If anyone got one please let me know. I am not sure whether to restore them to their former glory or to rejuvenate them as they are with their patina as I would like to use them to cut my lawn. Either way, they are safe here from the scrapman.
