I'm taking a break from snowblowers. Yesterday, I got running a 2'' Honda pump, an old Honda Generator, a Troybilt pressure washer, restrung a Husqvarna chainsaw and a weed wacker, and serviced a Craftsman rototiller. I've got five Husky saws, a Poulan, and two Echo's to go over and get ready to sell for today.

Nothing blower related but snow is starting so I thought I'd go up on the roof and clean the chimney. It's due for a cleaning so I have a 6" flue (just a wood stove in the basement) and it takes 4 6 foot rods joined with 3/4 NPT pipe nipples and bushings.

Anyway, get it cleaned and in the process of pulling out the brush and rod assembly. Usually start unthreading the rods as I pull them out. Icy, wet gloves and I thought I had a good grip on the second rod. Turns out I unthreaded the nipple from the first rod- 6' from the brush at the bottom of the chimney.

Got my LED flashlight and could barely see the rod but couldn't thread the pipe in because of the angle it was sitting.

Got a wire clothes hanger and twisted it onto the 3 rods I had and pushed it below the brush. Managed to pull it up about 7 or 8 feet and th eend of the rod was in the middle of the flue. Got it to thread on enough to pull the brush out.

Been doing this for almost 30 years and this is the first time I lost the brush...

Snowing heavier now here in Nova Scotia. Maybe I'll have to get the blower out after all...

Had to take a break from doing any work. Still doing shoulder therapy from all the damage it sustained when I tried to stop a fall back in early Nov. Dr. says it will be Sept. probably before he'll clear me. I'm Hoping it won't be nearly that long.
I have 5 rototillers that are ready for sale though, and one edger.

speaking of chainsaws... my 2175 Poulan Pro got a work-out dealing with this cedar that gave my garage a little hug:


I'll be replacing the fuel and pulse lines shortly...they're shot.

I also picked-up a non-running Wheel Horse C85 about a month ago... at a crossroads whether or not to use it this year or start breaking it down for a full restoration. After some top-end work (and paint), the Kohler K181 purrs.
