Default Hi from Michael Purkhiser in Akron, Ohio!

Hello everyone! I am new to this group and am excited to be here. I have recently become interested in collecting and restoring vintage Briggs and Stratton engines. I own a couple 5S engines, a 6S and a type N. I also am interested in restoring vintage power reel type lawn mowers from the late 40s and 1950s. I own 3 of these mowers and just love the way they look and are built! I am looking forward to exchanging and obtaining information on my new "old" found hobby! Thanks for having me!

Welcome aboard Michael. This is an amazing site and the benefits seem to be endless. I think I get the most out of it by going to the SmokStak main page and clicking on "Today's Posts." That shows you what everyone is talking about (and how I found you). Afterwards, you can go to the various many departments of most interest to you and catch up on the old threads. There is a special section for the Briggs type engines. Be sure to check back every two or three days to see what is happening in the world.

Welcome, There are a lot of people on here that collect briggs&stratton engines. I have been at it since 1978. There is lots of good information on here. If you need help just ask, someone will respond. The old lawn mowers are neet and fairly cheep to buy. Good luck. Arlie

When you get on the Stak, click on "NEW POSTS". It shows all the posts since you were on the last time. AND, you NEED to get on more than every day or two.
