Heavy duty field mechanic here, working out of Fort McMurray, Alberta.  Fix it all at any time, any weather down to -50 or so.  Field repair as required.  Units you see on the discovery channel are units that I have repaired and operated.  Vac trucks, drill rigs, shovels, haulers, gensets or light plants, they all show thier weaknesses when it gets cold.

communications technician.  I spent 36 years as a cable splicer/cable maintenance/repair tech.  Retired from a local telco in Alaska and went to work for an electrical contractor.  3rd year there so far.  I kind of do everything now.  Run backhoe/excavators and dozers.  Splice cable when the need calls for it.  Hang strand and lash cable/fiber.  Do alot of traveling around the state.  "Dig the holes, plant the poles, string the golden wire.  Kiss the girls, twist their curls, set their pants on fire".  Just a little poem someone wrote on one of our show up shacks.

By the way BlownHolley, great looking tables.  Looks like some quality craftsmanship.

Auto repair by trade for over 15 years in the last 4 years I have worked as a parts counterperson at a NAPA auto parts store.  I still supplement my income with part time repair work.  I am ASE certified and have been Chrysler certified in the past.  Chrysler corp 1997-04 is my specialty in most areas.  Most of the repair type work I focus on now has to do with driveability.  I however am aware that I do not know everything and I like to learn that is why I keep my ASE's up.  Any one with any questions on napa or chrysler stuff fell free to im me, who knows I might learn something also.

I am a third generation sheet rock man. My gran paw started doing sheet rock when it replaced lathe and plaster work here in the south.
can do it all from hanging to finishing. Only thing I have not done is knock down finish since it never caught on down here in the south...well they do it in Florida but
not in most other southern states.
due to the recent decline in building I am probably (if things work out) soon to be employed with a major NASCAR racing team..hopefully

Before going into LE, I ran an 8-employee residential framing/remodeling company. We placed an emphasis on turn-key additions, like carports, garages, and workshops––from planning to completion. I have experience in framing, roofing, fiber-cement/wood siding, decks, and tile/laminate floors. I also did my share of door replacements, trim carpentry, and drywall/painting.

I still do small jobs on the side for cash, and I still love the smell of freshly cut pine/spruce!

Welcome, dude! I also had a framing company (in the Mobile area) but I got out while the getting was still good. Last time I talked to some associates there, they were really getting the shaft due to the economy.
