Finally joined the Forum!!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, finally got round to joining the best Tool forum on the internet!! A bit about me, originally from the North East of England, a small town called Durham.

 

I'm 46 now and have been a mechanic for almost 30 years. Worked for Ford, Toyota, Rover and Volkswagen then left the UK in 2003 to work for the US Army at Ft Stewart GA, worked there for 7 years and then went to Afghanistan till 2013 when I emigrated to Canada and married my wife.

 

I just got my permanent residency so am now looking for work. I love Tools In Action and have enjoyed seeing Dan and Eric grow in their confidence and quality of their videos but they still manage to keep it raw and funny yet informative! Posted in the "show your toolbox" as well so check that out! I'm proud of my tools and my box!

 

I am a big DeWalt fan and have made many purchases based on Dan and Eric's reviews and also the crews opinions.

 

My big love is my 07 MINI Cooper S, I like the classic Mini's but I'm too fat to fit in one now...lol

 

Looking forward to being a member of the forum and getting to know more of the TIA crew!'

 

Cheers, Bearuk!

I worked with a guy that was doing the opposite he was marrying a Canadian lady and getting US citizenship. I think I pissed him off a few times with all of the Canadian jokes. Turns out I'm kind of an asshole when you make me work 24 hour hours or longer straight. Also Welcome to the TIA forum BearUK!! Its a great place with a bunch of fun but crazy people!!

Just wanted to know why it too so long for you to join the TIA forum Bear. Don't worry we don't bite too hard!! Besides did you see my post of the lady that comes from Milwaukee!!!! Its worth a look :)

not sure why it took so long DR other than I wanted to get my toolbox in order and my Tools In Action stickers on so i could show her off...lol but i think the real reason is I'm a procrastinator...but its good to be here now....i'll have a look for the post you mentioned!

I'm the kin of procrastination I think I just watched the TIA forums for at least year before I got the balls to post!! You also worry how people are going to treat the new people on the forum. Some forums are really bad about having new people join in. TIA has been always open to everyone except rude assholes and spammers. If you don't do either your fine!! Also liking Milwaukee tools is a plus but any tool brand is ok!!

LOL...I do like Milwaukee but I went the DeWalt route, I love their  stuff but the choice that Milwaukee offers is hard to beat! I know what you mean about other forums, sometimes if you don't know something and you ask, people can be very condescending but i've never found that with any of the TIA crew!
