The mower was at full-power, but the blade was
So, if I altered the balance of the blade when I
sharpened it [I tested the balance, but only 'cas-
ually'], that could only enter into the water's
pseudo-freezing by impacting the mower's
harmonics in an asymmetrical-damping way -
a small effect at most.
I do routinely wash the mower after using it [it's
more-valuable than my car :-], and I've never
noticed the phenomenon I'm discussing before
I sharpened the blade.
I can't say, however, that it wasn't there before
that. Perhaps it was there, but I just didn't

Maybe that's why I observed it then.
Anyway, the phenomenon is replicable [using

One more thing - the mower was on a very-

It's a toroidal-convex 'lens'.
