I have worn many hats during my working life. In order, Autobody repair, wood cutter, printing roll /acid etch tech, repair and setup tech at electronic parts company, Machinist (19 yrs) mechanical calibration tech, Cleanroom Tech, Military radio final inspector, Plant calibration and guage repair tech, window and power washing operator, Incoming inspection tech. Finally father of 3 boys two girls and grandfather of 4 boys and one girl. Have retired three times. Lived in Salamanca, NY - Dallas, Texas - Rochester, NY _ and presently in Albion, NY. Try to do all my own repairs on everything from carpentry to plumbing, to auto repairs. I build my own computers and repair what I can. I research items to death before I make a purchase, Guess Jack of all trades master of none could be my simple title.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I will try to fix most anything that requires a wrench, pliers or screwdriver. If it's mechanical, it can be repaired, usually.
