Hello. I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm a fairly capable handyman type with a pretty diverse skillset and the willingness to tackle pretty much any project that does not require an engineering degree or advanced math skills. I'm 50 and my wife and I just bought a fairly unmolested and well preserved large 1925 craftsman-style bungalow in Washington DC that needs all the kind of work I can do and (hopefully) not much of what I can't. First up starting in mid-May is fixing up the basement and a total kitchen remodel.
My hobbies are fly fishing (totally a rabid saltwater fly fisherman), collecting and restoring vintage standard guage Lionel trains, and cooking and collecting pre-WWII cast iron skillets.
I'm an IT consultant and am pretty good around a PC. I build all of mine from the ground up.
Stuff I've done in no particular order whatsoever:
Wall framing, drywall and spackling
Vintage window repair
Painting (brush roller and spray)
Plumbing (copper fitting/soldering)
Bathroom and kitchen plumbing fixtures - repair and replacement
Basic electrical (up to the panel)
Wood floor refinishing
Electrolysis rust removal
Home networking for computer, audio, and video.
Looking forward to picking people's brains here when I am confronted with a dilemma or paint myself into a corner. :P

Hi Ironlight. You've found a good place to ask your questions, lot's of smart folks here...and then there's me.
Hope you keep your mobile on you for that 'paint' situation
One of these hammers will fix it.
