Journeyman Sheet Metal Worker...

While I do mostly Commercial HVAC if it moves air or is metal I get to take care of it. I have two hospital accounts and one high tech account that pretty much keep be buried. I get to do alot of service work on HVAC systems on the hard parts, fans, and unit replacements and even complete remodels. With that includes installation of fans, units, and duct work. Besides installation welding SS, Alum, plastics, and even working with Fiberglass and Composite materials are on the plate. I have ran everything from aluminum dryer vent to 72" round composite acid exhaust. It keeps it interesting for the most part.

Sounds like I help design and install what ZW17 fixes....

It sure does.

We got ourselves a genuine "Tin Knocker"

When I first got into the HVAC trade I started in a union shop pounding metal fittings together. It was a beast of a job, hot and dirty. I then was let out into the field doing what you do. It's much better in the field and you gain a lot of experience that way.

I don't know how much help I could be in this type of thread, but I would assist if I could.

Autobody repair - sheetmetal fabrication, welding, dent repair etc.
Automotive paint - single coat to tri-coats to candy, whatever.  All learned the hard way.
Auto lighting, LEDS, other automotive electronics.
Basic auto repair - Mostly learned the hard way as well. Inspection mechanic also.
4X4 vehicles, gear reductions, buggies, mud trucks etc.
Fairly broad knowledge of ATV's and Snowmobile repair.
Emergency medical dispatcher certification.

Other items of interest but not "trades"


Scuba diving - open water, advanced open water, night, ice, resque and public safety diver certifications.
Archery, traditional and modern.


I have always had a habit of learning everything I can about things that interest me.

Automotive tech since birth it seems sometimes , but I also have a couple
of engineering degrees that I've acquired over the years . As well as a metric
shitload of factory and ASE certs . I'm also a 20 year member of SAE .

I've gone full circle and then some in the automotive field  . Tech , instructor ,
Engineer , consultant , shop owner , and now back to a tech part time because
in the end it's what I really love to do . Only now I'm old and wise enough to
pass on the nasty hump jobs that are more brawn then brains . Besides , that's
what the young guys are for . My dues were paid in full a long time ago

From the Phone Jack in your house to the Central Office I can repair or rebuild it. From a simple jack to pole replacement I can use the tools and crewmembers to put dial tone back in your house.

It pays well for a construction job.

Trained as a truck diesel mechanic though, I rarely get to work on engines anymore. They would rather send that sort of work out so they can get a warranty. Heck, I warranty everything I do. If it ever goes wrong bring it back and I'll fix it again.

I first did a Diemaking apprenticeship almost 30 years ago. I was a Journeyman for a few years, and then a series of cutbacks found me eventually doing Layout Inspection, both on the plate, and on CMMs. When even that went south, I was offered a Pipefitting apprenticeship,which I completed a while ago. All this happened in the same plant,strangely enough. I've never been laid off out on the street in almost 30 years. Now I am in a brand-new, state of the art plant, walking miles a day, fixing leaks and adjusting cylinders and such. Still the same plant I started in, too.

Well, after a semester I've discovered that I have a talent for welding so I may take it up as my new career.  I just passed the common arc certification test for the Boilermmakers union and I've received the AWS cert for unlimited plate welding w/mig.

Sweet, then could you tell me why on our DSN lines (Defense Switching Network) we recently started to get busy tones whenever we would call. Did matter what line used, what number called, what time of day, you dial a number and it comes up busy. Redial the same number and on same phone right away and it works

Commercial roofing and sheet metal systems. Mostly work on big flat roofs. I specialize in hard to find roof leaks and TPO system application.

EPDM (rubber) - Licensed or certified applicator for several systems.

TPO (Thermal Plastic Olefin) - another single ply system, similar to PVC, but has a mix of EPDM in it, seams are welded. Licensed or certified applicator for several systems.

Sheet Metal - Fabrication and installation of standing seam metal roofs, commercial box gutters, coping, flashing, and trim.

I have worked in the commercial roofing business for 20 years. Also attended college for several years where I studied business management and commercial illustration.

Currently own and operate a commercial roofing company.

I can answer general questions about the other trades, but unless it's a small job, I usually sub them out.
