I am a ASE Master certified automotive technician. I have been working as an auto technician for 21 years and currently manage a large scale mechanical reconditioning operation for national used car retailer. I am heavily involved in lean manufacturing and waste analysis. I don't bat 1000 all the time, but I consider myself to be a pretty damn good tech!

My first post!!!

Hey guys, My name is Jon, I am a certified Volkswagen technician. I can pretty much work on anything I can get my hands on but I specialize in German cars such as Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes, etc. In my line of work i do a lot of new cars, warranty repairs, retail work; you know, all the boring stuff. After hours I specialize in highly modified projects. I drive a 465 awhp audi a4, I've build 500awhp Audi S4's, a couple turbod 550 awhp VW R32's, and I'll be building a 450 whp GTI & a 600awhp 2004 R32 in the spring.

Feel free to PM me with Volkswagen questions if you've got them!!

My main thing that I like to do the most is custom cabinetry (Bookcases, entertainment centers, computer desks, wet and dry bars). I also do a lot of remodeling like tile flooring and baths, trim and finish carpentry.

Best aircraft I've ever worked?

The coolest one of those?

An F-15 C/ASAT with 229 engines owned by Edwards.

The damn thing came in with a bubbled windscreen. It was wrote up because the pilot left the rain/ice blower on. MY ASS.

Strengths would be gunsmithing, metalworking milling/turning/EDMing, and CAD/CAM engineering.

I also can do carpentry, outdoor plumbing, auto mechanics, ammo reloading, and a small list of other things that I normally don't do anymore.

I've done remodeling for the last 5 years or so, finish carpentry since I was a teenager, and have made furniture since before that. I currently do most of my work in the American Federal Period, but do other styles as time and needs permit. I do most, if not all, of the critical work by hand and do the rough milling and processing of boards with machines.

Computer networking technician by trade but i hate it

A+ cert Cisco CCNP, Security analyst and intrusion specialist (fancy name for legal hacker), Data network tech dealing with hardware aspect, C++ and a few other certs but i hate my cushy job tbh. in my area no one will hire me because id want to much money (over qualified) so I've decided to go back for my hobby a computer geek by day welder and sprint car enthusiast by night.

going back for my welding cert I've been welding since about 10-11 i think something like that only type of welding i cant do is tig welding and that's just because I've never had anyone teach me or have a tig welder, ill weld anything i can typically touch. instructor is gonna have me help teach the programming side of robotic welding, i sat in 1 class and could understand the program that little robot used to do everything, but i wonder if i could program it to make coffee.... class project.

Used to be a framing contractor til the residential market died on '06. Joined the Carpenter's Union and have been doing commercial concrete formwork mostly since then. Currently working for a company that specializes in concrete decks ( high rises and parking garages), but I've done plenty of walls and columns and a year and a half at a mostly undergound power plant rebuild that involved a lot of unusual situations and pallets of Hilti epoxy and a 100 tons of threaded rod to attach our formwork to the bedrock.
