From BC
« on: December 09, 2019, 10:31:24 PM »
Any time one gets to talk tools , it's interesting. Since my first tools now rate as vintage, it's even old tools. I came over here to read JimC post on Craftsman teardrop ratchets. Of course mine doesn't really fit, chuckle.

I'm a retired millwright, so I've used tools to make my living. Even before I picked up a trade, in fact, I bought tools with my first pay cheque .

Hello and welcome from British Columbia.
 When you say from BC do you mean British Columbia? and if so where do you call home. I live in Prince George.

I'm in Abbotsford, in the Fraser Valley, but  I spent 10 years three hours north of you, left in '86.

I'm guessing Chetwynd or maybe Dawson Creek. I spent close to a year in Chetwynd back in 1980, I was one of the crew building West Fraser sawmill.

I was millwrighting  at Canfor then.  I walked in and applied as a carpenter/millwright. They hired me as a millwright, that was my start pulling wrenches.
