Hi everybody! I am a Canadian noob, presently based in Port Alberni, on Vancouver Island. I am a 50 year old semi retired tool & die maker & I enjoy my many technical hobbies. I have a very comprehensive machine & electronix shop that fills my basement & gives me many hours of pleasure. I also enjoy science fiction. I look forward to contributing to this fine site, & getting to know the others here. Cool

Welcome Tekwiz!

Glad to have you here and I look forward to reading your contributions. Smile

I would love to see what your workbench looks like and if you act quickly (be entry #20) you can get a free loupe magnifier to add to your workbench. Wink

Thanx, Alan. I did enter my shop in the contest, so enjoy. That magnifier sounds good, too. My eyes aren't the greatest, so it would come in handy. I look forward to contributing. I just found out about this site, so you will certainly be hearing more from me. I have been a member of the Dutchforce electronics forum for about 3 years & have over 12,000 posts there. I will probably be on this site daily, now that I know about it. Smile

Thanks for entering! Nice looking workshop. I wish mine was that large. Shocked

Something that is not obvious from the pix, is that my shop has a grade entrance with a garage style door. I have enough room in front of my assembly bench to bring a car into the shop. Nothing like a drive in basement! Are you jealous yet? Laughing

LOL! In that case, a contest is in order, methinks. Laughing
