Dratted Mower

I wrestled with the lawn mower last night. God help you if you have to fix a Homelite electric mower. I had to use a saw to get the canopy off the motor.

The real problem with the mower is that it is vibrating itself to death. I found one lead popped clean off (bad metal in the wiring) and a capacity stand broken off (metal fatigue from cheap metal).

I did try to buy replacement parts, but they were nowhere to be found. Nada. Nothing. 

Much more of this and I'll have to find better wires and some better attachment thingies and rebuild the wiring.
