fng here...
« on: July 10, 2024, 03:01:45 PM »
I'm a refugee from the garage gazette. Looks like y'all have quite the nifty little community here. Busted down with the ban hammer from ch3

Thanks for having me.

Not really a collector, more of a user of tools and such. I'm the neighbor they bring stuff to get looked at and possibly repaired. Kids and grand kids bring their broken stuff too. Some can be worked on, some can be fixed, and others get repurposed or just thrown away. I try to have patience. My wife reminds me of the stories my siblings and parents told of me tearing stuff up as a youngster. So I try to understand why stuff gets torn up. I will say, I know why my dad and grandfather were always so salty now. I just couldn't figure it out back then.

I hope I can add to the site with good info and I hope all are well!

Welcome!  I live in Texas.  Missouri City just outside of Houston. Papaw lived down the road from me about 25 miles or so. I'm the uncle everybody calls to ask about gardening. I like shopping estate sales for tools.   
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....
