I just cut through the damn power cable for the lawn mower again. Not bad considering I have only done it once before in the 4 years in this house. This time though I grabbed my handy dandy soldering gun and got to work. Ten minutes later it was good as...well..it works. I don't know how I have gone so long without a soldering gun. I have used the heck out of it lately. But yeah...next mower....cordless.
