    • Re: What is your Occupation?

      I work at Lowe's - we get an employee discount (My Home Depot roommate doesn't) so I buy most of my handtools and supplies at work...but it's off to Harbour Freight or HD for most of my power tools.

      I'm currently making the jump from people who work for a living to management.

                  Ok guys first post so go easy on me
                  I'm a Pipe fitter Welder from a little town just outside Oxford, England.
                  I own quite a few Ridgid tools but mainly just pipe wrenches and 2 pipe welding clamps(an elderly flange and a newish butt) but all my ridgid gear works without fault.
                  You guys in the States don't really know how lucky you are with all your Ridgid distributors, here in the U.K we only have 1 distributor and Ebay if that counts.
                  We do have other quality makes of pipe tool like Rothenberger and Record/Irwin but they just don't quite match to Ridgids quality.

                    Hey, guys. Great forum.

                    I am an Electrical Engineer at a large chemical company - been there almost 33 years.

                    I have always dabbled in woodworking, fix it yourself stuff. Started collecting some power tools in 1978 when I built my first house - my first tool was an old B&D circ. saw, used it to do all the framing and cutting of particle board, plywood, you name it for that house. I still have it and it still works, just used it about 5 years ago to build a 20' x 14' shop/storage bldg. from rough cut sawmill lumber.

                    I collected tools as I needed them thru the years - a Craftsman RAS was my first attempt at getting started into some better precision woodworking about 15 years ago (don't laugh, I did some pretty nice book shelves with that old saw - still have it) and had plans to get a TS, joiner, planer, etc. to start doing some more serious woodwork. But I never did get around to it. Kids growing up, going to college, etc.

                    But just recently I have started to get more serious - just bought a TS3650, a JP0610, a BS1400, a TP1300LS, a oscillating sander, and a 12 sliding miter saw (all Ridgid). Thanks to the special deal at the BORG.

                    Now I wish I had made my storage building about twice as big - I guess my next project for this summer is to build a new workshop. I have spent the last 2 summers painting my house and replacing screen wire on my back porch - I hate painting, but I would rather do something myself so if something goes wrong I have only myself to blame.

                          I work in the Pipeline Integrity department for a major pipeline company in Houston. I read/analyze smart pig data, deformation and MFL, and develop rehab plans accordingly. Basically I read squigilly lines and create spreadsheets all day. All the while looking out the window on nice days dreaming of being at home in the wood shop/garage.

                          No, the half of the missing finger was not power tool related.

                                People laugh when they read that. I think it means I'm the smartest monkey in the barrel.

                                I'm proud to be called a plumbing mechanic. Residential service, remodeling, boiler piping, new construction.
