    New to forum

    Hello, I just registered here today and wanted to post a howdy to forum members.
    I am new to this field and will more than likely be a lot of questions in the near future. I currently hold a universal tech certification but have not done much other than some small repairs on heatpumps and window shakers.
    I have a lot to learn and am looking forward to it.
    A little about me,
    I am 41.
    I have two great little kids and a great wife.
    I have several interests, just ask my wife! I like old Farmall tractors and antique outboard motors, and R/C airplanes.
    I am working full time in a plastics manufacturing facility and have been for 15 years. I am looking to eventually get out of there and start doing this full time. Tired of the rotten shift I am on and all the "educated" people making my decisions for me. I know there are pros and cons for having your own business but I have been in factory production work almost since day one of my working career and I am tired of it.
    Anyway, greetings to all and prepare to be bombarded with questions.
    I have 2 jobs lined up right now and I know I will need your help with one.

    Better late than never is what I've been telling myself ... I got in last year when I was 30 ... and half of my journeymen are younger than I am lol ... and in school I think that I was the oldest out of 25 :P I'm just glad that I'm doing it now!

    Thanks for the welcomes,
    One thing I have learned from other sites like the DTR (Diesel truck resource) is that there is always someone out there that can help you figure something out. That site has been indespensible to keeping my truck on the road. I could not afford the dealer repair costs.
    Yesterday's tractors is another good site.
    Thanks again.
    Dan.
