I live in Round Lake Illinois, a small community about 50 miles northwest of Chicago. An area known as the Chain o lakes, famous for its fishing and boating. I worked in the pipeline construction and maintenance industry as a welder for quite a few years and more recently as an automotive technician. I enjoy woodworking and racing & collecting vintage h.o. slot cars, mainly Aurora model motoring cars and accessories. I like almost anything vintage, especially old toys, tools, cameras and collectibles. You might find almost anything for sale here if its worth saving. I like buying and selling here on eCRATER, and hope to do more in the near future.
