Tonight's project - Choke Lever

Postby Winfield Dave » Wed Feb 23, 2011 7:13 pm

Bashful didn't have a choke lever and I thought I would just manually turn the choke when I started him...
But, I was looking for a small ?? project to do tonight and made him a choke lever.
Took about 1-1/2 hours...most of it was cutting the chunk of aluminum. :x
Didn't bother making it pretty as he is just a playing Cub. :)

Nothing wrong with that lever. Does what it is supposed to do. You can find this particular style on :eBay: -- usually starts around $18 - $20 and goes for more. This one is cheaper and gave you a little project that you enjoyed -- can't beat that with a stick :D Nice job :!:
