How long have you been working with tools?
Somewhere around the age of 7, my father built his house, and I "had to help!" I think my first project was a pinewood derby car, and it just snowballed from there. When I was 14, my dad bought my brother Mark and I our first starter Craftsman Mechanics sets and small roll-away tool chests.
What is your favorite tool?
It's a toss-up between my Original 16oz Craftsman Hickory-handled hammer and my C3 Hammer Drill/driver.
Why Craftsman?
Price, no-hassle return policy and lifetime warranty. You can tell a Craftsman tool by touch and feel.
Favorite thing you ever made?
My full restoration of a 1987 Pontiac Fiero. I did 90% of the work myself with my Craftsman tools.
What do you do when you are not on the Craftsman Community?
I've gotten into yard-work and gardening since I've bought my first home. I seem to be pretty successful at vegetable gardening. I also love working on cars. I'm currently working on a Chevy S-10 frame for use under an old pick-up truck body (yet to be purchased).
