I picked up a tatty old webb push mower and was wondering how to date it.

I am planning on stripping it and repainting etc.

Any help, advice or grass box welcome.

Hello Hepsibar
Well, Webb has a long heritage and I have been
trying to understand the AUS perspective for some years.

The Wasp was the six-bladed 12" model.
It formed a part of the holy Webb trinity:
the Whippet, Wasp, and Witch.

I would rate the Whippet good; Wasp better; and Witch great laugh
[Apologies to Devo fans].

My best guess is that the Wasp was a post-war model
introduced here in about 1947.

I would date AUS sold machines from that time to about the mid-1950s
[based on newsprint advertisements]

It sold over many decades: -

An image of your machine may help dating ...

Hope this helps.
