Subject:
crank it up

GaryG in MD
When I was a teen, in the 50s, my Dad had a 1922 Model T pickup.
He let me drive it, but he wouldn't let me crank it.
He said it could break my arm. He was probably right.

So now I have a Jet 1236 with a bad starter cap, and I have to hand crank it until the replacement comes. That brought back my memory of the Model T.

BTW, without a starter cap, the Jet 1236 will run backwards! Here's my chance! ;-)
