Keith Mullins
When and how did you get into using tools/doing projects?
I worked with my Dad in his garage as far back as I can remember. I even converted my tricycle to a Big Wheel around age 4!
What do you do when you're not tinkering in the garage and working on other projects?
I attend Vintage Motorcycle & Automobile events.
What's the project you're most proud of?
It has to be a toss-up between my 1968 Harley SS250 & my 1974 Indian ME100.
Any stories of DIY disaster?
ALWAYS unplug the drill before changing drill bits. 14 stitches later....
Why do you use Craftsman tools?
They just feel the best in my hands.
How did you get your DIY skills?
I make a huge effort to stay teachable and observe the other craftsmen around me.
Anything you have to say to other craftsmen out there?
Take your time and do it right the first time. Nothing's worse than having to do something twice because you rushed it the first time.
