Lawn sweeperfrom an oldhand mower
You've gone to power for yourweekly grass-cutting chore?Don't throw away yourpush-type machine untilyou've considered thispractical use for some of its parts
hadn't thought
of it, but the
parts from the old hand mower you've beenready to toss out since you bought a new powermower can be used to make an excellent lawnsweeper. You dismantle the mower and throwaway everything but the wheels, wheel plates(in older hand mowers these are castings), thepinions and clutch pins and the bolts and re-tainers that hold the wheels on the spindles, andin some cases the reel bearings. Clean these partsthoroughly in a solvent to remove accumulationsof grime and lubricant.The brush which picks up leaves and trashmust run in a direction opposite to that of thegrass-cutting reel. This is accomplished by re-versing the normal position of the wheel platesand driving the brush through spur gears and aroller chain as in Figs. 1 and 3. The former detailof the assembly and the photos show how themower is altered and reassembled with a newdrive shaft, a jackshaft, to give the brush shafta reverse rotation to the direction of travel.
