PB fixed one of these for a friend:
And we got one of these from that friend:
While PB was fiddling with the chainsaw, I remembered a conversation I had with S last summer, we were discussing my redneck washing machine, she mentioned that she had one by Lehman's, complete with the rollers, she said that she didn't use hers, I asked if she would be willing to sell hers and she said yes. The problem was she wouldn't quote me a price, I don't know why she wouldn't do it, but she wouldn't, she wanted me to make an offer. I think it's a thing about being friends, neither wants to offend the other so we played this game ever since.
So while PB was deciding that he needed to take the bar from the chainsaw home to drill a hole in it, I remembered about the washing machine and asked S if I could see it. She promptly took us to where it was being stored and there it was, practically brand new, she had never used it, or if she had, it was barely used. I made the comment (in jest) that I had been trying to get S to quote me a price on it and she wouldn't, so S popped up and said that if PB fixes her chainsaw, we could have the washing machine. I just about fell over!
So now, S has a working chainsaw and we have a hand washing machine that I have been wanting for quite some time. Just in case you might think that was an unfair trade, to get that chainsaw worked on or to get a replacement chainsaw, S would have to drive 3 hours out and 3 hours back, pay for the work or pay to get a new one, so yes, it was a good deal for everyone, though I will admit that I feel like we got the better end of that deal. Of course, we do help S when she needs it, just like we do for most anyone else out here. :)
The washing machine is smaller than I thought it would be, I pictured something the size of a 55 gallon barrel cut in half, this is more like a 30 gallon barrel cut in half, being smaller is good though, it will take less water. I haven't had a chance to give it a try yet, I will soon though. Thanks S!
