Steve's Profile

I primarily focus on topics such as home improvement, car repair, and working with tools, as this is the stuff I know best. I have a strong mechanical background and have worked in several maintenance and repair positions, as well as managing a farm. So, suffice it to say, I don't mind getting dirty. At some point, I would like to start making how to videos, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

If you have any questions about how to fix or repair something, please let me know. I would love to share my knowledge with you or learn from you, whatever the case may be.
