I wasn't always a sewing machine mechanic, but I have always had a tendency to pick up new skillsets, especially in slow periods in my life. I can do several types of welding, I can build and manage network systems, I can blacksmith, the list can go on and on and on.
Recently one of my regular customers had me take a look at their network because they'd been having issues, which turned into a conversation about working on networks, etc, and now I have been asked to upgrade their network system and do some managing on it to make their systems work better, faster, and more stable.
I also do some work with gunsmithing. Nothing like boring a barrel, more like adding new barrels or swapping out parts. My most often gunsmithing customer says I have both "gorilla strength" and "finesse strength," and that's why he has me make adjustments. Granted, he also has me weld together shooting targets using half-inch steel plate.
I have worked in machine shops, wood shops, fabrication shops, IT departments, phone system repairs, museum archives, and just about everything in between. I don't meant to toot my own horn, but I like to be able to help people with projects. If you ever have an odd issue that I "may" know something about, please feel free to ask.
Your sewing machine guy:
I am a Jack-of-Most-Trades that was roped into working on sewing machines, and managed to find a knack for it. I love hilarity, fixing things that are broken, video games, dogs, cats, most other creatures, and sleep. Especially sleep. On here you'll usually find tidbits about recent visits or ADORABLE CREATURES THAT LOVE ON ME WHILE I WORK. There may be ancient machines, there may be unique machines.
