    Default Hi all...

    I've been a member here for around six years but, I've been absent for around 5 years, now I've returned under a different name (same account, new name); some of you may remember me but most likely not, I wasn't here for long...

    Anywho, I've expanded my tool collection &, therefore, expanded the kind of work I can now perform. 5 years ago, I had the basics & a welder, compressor, etc, now I have a 3 in 1 welder (although I haven't tried the TIG yet), a bigger compressor, I'm on my second lathe (the latest having a mill attachment) & a 52" sheetmetal combo (shear/brake/roller)... just to name a few...

    I've also changed my location; I was in Sydney, I'm now in Warwick, Qld...

    I hope to get to know some of you in the near future...

    Thanks guys, I'm a little "everything's up in the air" ATM so, I'll start posting as soon as things start falling back to earth

    My name is Tony; the "Call Me Jack" username refers the the old adage "Jack of all trades"; it's also the name of my new youtube channel (please excuse the gratuitous plug )

    At the time, I didn't have much of a choice; Sydney was just getting ridiculously expensive, I was homeless & unemployed when my daughter offered for me to live with her; it was a great opportunity as I would be closer to my young grand kids but, I had to leave my 13yo daughter behind...

    We now live on a small property (a little over an acre) with a large yard (lots of room to play with my toys) & a double garage sized workshop (lots of room to make/repair more toys) as well as a 20' shipping container which houses my machine shop (among other things)...

    I am & always will be a Sydney boy but, having said that, I'm over the "rat race" lifestyle so, it makes a nice change; I have access to just about everything I need here, although, for now, the local Bunnings is very under stocked; fortunately, they are currently working on a much larger store...

    ... & I have many... as always, I usually have at least half a dozen going at any given time...

    I'll be sure to start posting ASAP; in the meantime, you can see some of my work here

    Great work on the go carts Tony. Your grandkids look thrilled with the new toys. You must be very proud of them and I'll bet that they love having you around.

    Indeed they are... the boys anyway; my granddaughter still hasn't seen her go kart
