I’ve had trouble starting my 2006 Echo string trimmer the last couple weeks. I did a Google search for how to adjust and found they sell tune up kits for $20. It included air filter, fuel filter, spark plug, fuel lines, gaskets, AND a carburetor!

I replaced it and figured out how to tune the carb and it works great!

$20

Did you just Tweet at him or DM him? I’m going to order one tonight.
Yep, just send him a DM, and then he'll give you the pricing, and his Venmo.
I am buying the skating Goldy and giving it to my wife to wrap as a Christmas gift for me.
Which skating goldy?

A little late on this. On Wednesday, during my weekly Speedgolf round, this happened.
It was about 5:45 AM, and there was a lot of dew on the greens. This is a 100 yd hole, and I hit my sandwedge. It was real high; you can see the ball mark, but no trail in the dew. It must have taken the one bounce and landed in the cup (or hit the pin a foot up and dropped in). The amazing thing is that it stayed in the hole. They have the noodle in the hole to keep the ball accessible. It isn't always easy for a nice putt to stay in (we use a special rule if it goes in and just pops out) So, I'm lucky this didn't because I didn't see it after it hit the green.

So I just heard from him that he’s had 10 more orders for skating Goldy since I asked for one a week ago. :shock:
Keep it on the DL before the U starts asking for a cut. 😬

Thanks @gopherguy13 for finding out about this and sharing :)

Pulled pork on the smoker at 7 am. It is already looking all sorts of porky deliciousness.

Can’t wait for a couple of cold ones, a nap, dinner, then switch over to mai tais before fireworks.

Happy 4th to everyone!

Yeah, the bowl thing is kinda dumb.

It's just a bowl. And for the non-cavemen (or women), it's rather easy to drink out of. You can order a bowl for the first week that certain IPAs are released. Yes, it's part gimmick, and yes, it's part tradition (see: vikings). :D

Not saying that Vikings drinking ale from bowls NEVER happened, but it was wine that was brought in from abroad that would typically be in bowls. Ale was usually drank from a wood cup or cattle horn.

Yes, I see how a bowl is much easier for a brewery. :mrgreen:

I love Back Channel but if they brought me beer in a bowl I’d tell them to F off. On another note picked up a couple of crowlers at Barrel Theory this weekend, Shredder McGavin and Fan the Flames, couple of NE IPAs. They continue to knock it out of the park. Best brewery in town IMO.

You have to ask for the bowl. So don't bother with the hostilities.

But there’s so few times we can razz you for being pretentious! Lake Minnetonka! Beer served in a bowl! Who do you think you are? It’s not the Renaissance Fair.

One of the tweets form the maker shows a hole for a screw head or hook.

This is the first photo I've seen of the final product. Schwing! I hope the tail makes it through the shipment.

He is charging 100$ for the Goldy (plus shipping of $20) and my M was $70 (50 + 20); that may go up given the boom in Gopher business 😬

Does he have email? I’m not on FaceBook or Twitter (jeez I’m a Rube!!). I’d like to get a Goldy for Christmas.
I looked and couldn’t find one but I may have missed it. Thx

Anyone care to share what both costed together? I may get both and give one as a gift to my brtoher.
He is charging 100$ for the Goldy (plus shipping of $20) and my M was $70 (50 + 20); that may go up given the boom in Gopher business 😬
I ordered my skating Goldy last week and he said he has had a great response from Gopher fans.

When he emailed me the pics you see above of skating Goldy, he said he had ten more orders for Goldy so far. Looks like that number will continue to rise. Keep this quiet from the U....

Whoa... is it wood or how will you hang it?
Medium density fiberboard. I believe it’s only about two feet wide and a little over a foot high. But I’ll let you know, mine arrives today!!! And skating Goldy is finished so he should be here next week!!!
How do you plan on hanging?
One of the tweets form the maker shows a hole for a screw head or hook.

This is the first photo I've seen of the final product. Schwing! I hope the tail makes it through the shipment.

Sweet mother of Joseph that thing is awesome!

It was so hot the bubble wrap melted on during shipping.

He’s so awesome he’s going to make a new one and pay for me to ship this one back.

He feels so bad - he said his wife helped him pack and the foam wrap underneath didn’t get put on, but I know the heat didn’t help at all. Who knows, it also might have been packed under something heavy that compressed it in the ups truck - you can’t control the weather or the ups. I offered to find the paint and spray it myself but I know I’d ruin it. 😆
He is seriously going above and beyond, this guy deserves the business he gets!

As much as I want one (both), we just repainted the basement the UofM maroon color. I am afraid both would just be kind of lost, or look odd on the walls with the matching color.

Will there be eyes and a puck with the skating Goldy added yet?

I imagine he could reverse the colors with Gold being dominant and Maroon the trim. :M2:

It was made to look like the logo (this was before he moved the upper arm stripe and fixed the fingers on the bottom hand)

Gotcha. I'm used to seeing the version on my 2006~ish diagonal gophers white jersey that has a black puck and black eyes (don't know how to post a photo that isn't hosted online).

Maybe he could do the 70s Gopher football goldy too...

That must be the one. Looking at it now its a Misson Jersey. I think they switched from Nike in 02 to Mission in 03... I laugh because it says "Authentic" on it. It was purchased at Goldy's Locker room while I was at school there, (so mustve been 05). But is clearly not authentic. It is sized "Large" versus 48, 50, etc. and it is so thin and cheaply put together its sad.

I keep trying to take a photo and post as an attachment, but even a 2MB cell phone photo tells me "attachment size too large."

Not quite, but close. Has Gold Helmet and gloves, just like the one he made. But just has black eyes, nose, skate blades, and puck like the one you posted. I am not critiquing saying he is wrong by any means, just used to the logo that's on the bottom of the jersey I had and never realized how many slightly different versions there are until now...

It still looks awesome! And is correct based on this jersey:

This is the football goldy, but I cannot find a better version of it:
