    What's your Daytime Job.

    Of course we all love racing or hot rods of some type, but what is your day job?
    I've been in the equipment rental business for 15 years. Started as a road mechanic and worked up to Store Manager. The rental bus. pretty much sucks right now so I changed jobs in January and now work for a crane co. Southway Crane & Rigging. We rent anything from a small 15 ton to an 800ton crane. The 800ton is one of largest truck mounted cranes in the country and only a couple of them in the US.

    I started my own welding businsess about 5 years ago, at first i did alot of welding of stainless and aluminum when custom motorcycles were the big craze, backhalved cars, and so on. I quickly realized it was easier to make money in the construction field and started doing mostly commercial jobs, dont get me wrong, they are both really hard work.

    I set up tube benders. Not like at the local muffler shop. Big CNC benders that make multiple bends in each tube

    I am a Project Leader for Caterpillar Inc. My division is based out of Peoria, Illinois but I work in Champlin, Minnesota. My responsibilities of being a Project Leader are to wrench and write the Disassembly and Assembly Manuals for all of the Cat Paving Products, Cat work tools, Defense and Federal Products, and also manage our Mechanical Lab. Basically we take a new machine and tear it down and write the remove, disassemble, assemble, and install of all the serviceable components for all the Cat dealers and customers worldwide. I like my job because I am not sitting at my desk 8 hours a day or turning wrenches 8 hours a day. Truth be told.....I am spoiled with my hours which are 6:30 am - 3 pm, and I am home by 3:30 pm.
