    i don't expect many will need fire & rescue. but some one might need an electrican. i also do restoration work. anything from restoring antique appliances like fans,coke machines, ect. to auto, marine, bike.
    as well as custom metal work. think black smithing and fab shop, more than auto paint and body.

    I work as an electrical designer for BDMI MEP engineers... we do hospital, manufacturing, and commercial building infrastructure. Once again, not so useful for a Binder. But it can be useful for bartering! Not to mention sound advice on honey do's.

    I'm a wanna be mechanic but I have military experience with small arms repair. Some, not all, translates into the civilian market. If anyone needs help diagnosing malfunctions or customizing let me know, I might be able to help. I am very familiar with AR-15 and FN FAL type weapons and some pistols and also get good deals on parts. (dealer pricing in most applications)
