    As my handle would indicate, I tune pianos. I cannot tune a fish if that was the next question. I also used to rebuild and restore very old pianos to near new condition, inside and out, but I wasn’t able to keep that up and now I just tune. Much easier on my back!

    I was a Tool & Die Maker for 38 years but after the die making business went mostly off shore I got a tech job with the United States Postal Service. That was for 7 years until I retired for good. But then I drove for a blood place, worked at a home improvement store, volunteered at a hospital, worked as maint. at a hospital(non-volunteer), then was a crossing guard for one school season. To finalize everything, I now do electrical installations(fans, lights, switches for homes). (Mostly a what do you think you want to pay me?) due to the great amount of retired folks around here.

    So I have always wondered, do you have to have very good ears etc for that? And is that something you had to apprentice in for years?

    Flooring installer for 31 yrs, now a days these guys are either a carpet installer, tile setter, wood, ect. Back in the day I did not want to limit my income and I learned how to do it all, I traveled for 9 yrs doing Marriott hotels all over the US, now I'm mainly in the kc area doing residential work. On the weekends I work on remodeling my rentals as there is no retirement for self employed floor guys so I got into rentals, I like working with my hands and being able to see finished products,
