Second pickup 2018

Hey,
Sure.

Fact is if you want to replace the complete sweeper you don't need to drill.
Just cut off the "bolts"  (or call it sweeper arm if it still exists :-)  ) that the stuff fits through the washer and it will fall apart.





Hope that helps you out! (If I got your question right)

Thanks, I'll have to take a look when I get a chance this weekend. I also enjoyed the pictures on your blog! How did you restore the handles? I need to do that as well.

Hey,
sorry for the late response. I somehow missed your question about the handles.

I just use sandpaper and a file/rasp (not sure which word is more common).
I use the sandpaper to get rid of the dirty and rotten wood layer to restore nearly the org. color. With the rasp I try to reshape the edges.
The last finish is done with warm non-stick-spray. You could also use some timber-preservativs but not-stick-spay works fine for me since years.

Best regards,
Jan

Very nice restore! I love the fact that you were able to bring it back to its original beauty... nicely done!
