Thanks, Guys, I should have presented myself….

I’ve been in construction all my adult life and then some… ;) I’ve graduated to being a home inspector after banging boards and mixing mud for almost 20 years but but I still get my hands dirty from time to time even if my back won’t let me do that for too long a stretch…

I live in the Great White North, in a little township of 1500 over an area of roughly 100 square miles… It’s us and the blackflies for the three summer months , 3 months of rain and a solid 5 months of snow ;)

I’ve been taking things apart since I was a toddler, fixing things and renovating with my parents and started doing renos on my own when I was 19-20, graduated to homebuilding, doing log structures, solar designs and remodels until my partner retired. Since I hated paperwork and the redtape that goes along with construction nowadays, I decided I just couldn’t take the business over so we sold the big stuff and went our separate ways, and I’ve been doing home inspections ever since, for the past 15 years now.

I am tool geek as well, although I don’t like to admit it. I have enough of my kids laughing at the collection of tools “he never uses”... And fighting my wife to allow me to display some of the old stuff I like to look at, such as this huge Hammond transformer I used as a coffee table base for a while ;)

Thanks again for the welcome, I’m looking forward to get some feedback on this Hitachi WH10DFL impact driver, which I have tried and find a bit too noisy to my liking, would be my first Hitachi tool after owning B&D Industrial, Porter Cable, Rockwell, Bosch, Milwaukee and of course Makita…

In case you wondered where my nickname came from… I’m a Diesel Toyota Landcruiser diehard, I used to own an 83 BJ60, I let it go t a young enthusiast after it had served me well for almost 600,000 km ;) But that’s another story :)

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
