I am a recent new member of OLC with an avid interest in old lawnmowers. I confess to being an absolute newbie but own 3 already, all post 1968, (JP Maxees and 2 x Atco) All of this got me wondering when searching for spares or equivalents.....Having been in manufacturing for 25 years, data management is considered critical, yet lawnmower enthusiasts rely on each other and any manuals they can get their hands on. Would a database of part numbers cross-referenced to different manufacturer models be of any help? I am in the process of building the database and have catalogued all Atco Ensign part numbers and started on the Atco Commodore range. Others will be added - but it takes a solid week to catalogue all of the part numbers for each product range! I am prepared to put the time in and build it up over time and make it available to all OLC members.
Give me your thoughts please.
