Tech tip of the day. (30 yrs late)

Recently, I found the best tool for working with those tiny springs on the old Briggs carburetors, the ones that are sometimes wrapped around linkage rods, are easily detached and reattached using a small, medical hemostat. They work great for those little buggers. Every time I have ever had any medical procedure done I always request the tubing from my IV, and whatever else they dispose of that is clan and useable.
Have a good ay, all.

The metal strips in the rubber blade of a wiper blade, also come in pretty handy. And you can bend them to what ever you need.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.

My Dad had a surgical clamp and was the envy of all who saw it in action.
