I'm Kev and I have a variety of skills.
I've replied to another post and joined the group.
I have extremely limited time in life as I work full time (Mon-Fri) and run a woodfired Pizza business on weekends (which normally takes up most of my spare time)
Lately, I've been repairing our investment unit (which our last tenants wrecked) - it is my 'Good Samaritan Tax' - we rented to a single mum with two kids, dropped the rent for her and didn't ask for a bond - BIG MISTAKE! Long story, short answer is it will cost us about $30k
But we live and we learn keep smiling for life is for enjoyment
As mentioned, I have a variety of skills, Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering and general life skills.
Would love to have a major interaction with the group, but my belief is that I won't have much time to do so.
So, I'll have to cherry pick the posts to give my input and from time to time, ask questions from the group to improve my skillsets.
BTW, It's a snag sanger - Aussie way of life and supported by Bunnings and charity groups - so good to grab a snack on the weekends and continue rockin'

Hi Catherine here from WA I'm partially buying an ex homes west rental and need a labotamy. Barely able to keep up with maintenance, actually that's not true its lagging severely. Blessed with two children grown up. 3 by 1 brick and tile. I have heaps of tools from garage sales and stiff given to me but have no idea how to use them. ATM trying to hang doors, thought it was going to be easy. NO .... I bought 4 second hand doors. Long story short went to bunnings and bought new latches etc. I have everything but wood plane. Once I have my plane hoping this site will help.
