Odd Software for Odd Jobs


Day-off after working Sunday night so doing some chores. Of course, the starter cable on the lawn mower breaks … one more chore added to the list.

Found a replacement cable at the hardware shop easily enough - it's about 30cm shorter than the original.

Was pretty easy replacing it … until I tried to figure out how to put it all back together.

Finally figured out the trick - you need to give it a few turns to tension the spring BEFORE you feed the cable back out and attach the handle. Duh!

Don't let go!
