Hello from North Vancouver!


Renaissance Man in Training
Hey all!

It's great to be a part of a community focused on a trade I have been wanting to ad to my list of skills.

Just starting out with welding and trying to locate a decent benchtop mill to help fabricate some things. Any leads would be helpful!

As for my skills I've been in the trades for 30 years. The largest chunk of that was plumbing. Everything from repair, reno, commercial, off the grid and developing world projects. I have worked mostly in the USA, but also Africa, Central and South America and the Caribbean. The second biggest chunk of my career has been in property/facility maintenance management. I am hands on familiar with framing, electrical (and electronics), HVAC and site work.

I am a lifelong mystic and musician. I enjoy nature especially the ocean. Other interests include Ham radio, skateboarding and martial arts.

Thanks to all for creating a place to learn and share ideas and experiences!
