Not bad. They usually cost about $40 an hour...

Maybe it's just me, but I like it when they are family men also.

When I read the title, I was thinking of this kind of handyman, maybe worth a lot more....

They don't seem to care about the address. I have a subscription that is ending next month, so I signed up DW for the $5 deal. Same address. Seems to have worked.

I keep my instruction and homework stuff in the cloud these days: youtube..
Amazing what you can find there, fix a stalled garbage disposal, set the valves on a ducati literbike, mastercylinder replacement on the pickup...you name it. I take the laptop out under the hood with me. Will I soon find something I need missing from youtube? Sure, but I guess not for long.

I got one for a present awhile back and enjoyed it very much. There's a 20% harbor freight
coupon every month that keeps me from tearing up my barber's Road and Track.

Never considered it might be a $5 gift.
