let’s start by assembling all the cogs…
THE STORY BEGINS
1st Cog – My Uncle
My journey took its first step with one man, my uncle. By profession, he is a woodworker on par with professionals and still, now he is doing that. He and his family live with us since my childhood. And we all are a rowdy bunch. He is muscular, strong, and a little bit of an angry type.
And he used to get angry at me because…
2nd Cog – His Work & His Cabin
Designing cabinets, doors, frames, furniture are his expertise. His craftsmanship is exceptional. Not to mention the soul he pours into his work is fascinating. All in all, I would say that he is made of three Essential Gears.
And the amazing fact is that even if he is only into woodworking, he had a variety of power tools in his work cabin that I can think of.
Air Compressor, Nail Gun, Drills, Table Saw, Grinder, Wood Planer, Routers, Miter Saw, Generator And The List Goes On –
3rd Cog – a fond memory
“Remember, I Said, “He Used To Get Angry On Me Because…”
I was the one who usually took his tools away. I needed those tools to operate my toy cars in my childhood. Broke many of them and saved only a few of them. Then, I had to get lectures from my father and uncle on breaking the cars and taking the tools without permission.
– That Was A Fond Memory I Still Cherish –
4th Cog – the inspiration
Being around him, my whole life. He has taught me all about these magnificent tools. Their internal functioning, how to repair them, what are the best ways to utilize them, as well as what are their safety precautions.
Looking back I use to ask him about these tools a lot and still now, I ask him about any problem regarding the tools.
– He & His Work Were An Inspiration For Me In My Mischief Days –
5th Cog – my mission
Well, that same inspiration of mine boosted my morale a lot. All that energy was just geared into “My Mission”. Now, seeing that today’s modern era is jammed packed with power tools. So, many heavy-duty tools and machines around us. And when you put your gaze on the market. There is a huge ocean to get yourself immersed in.
That’s why in all this bustling world, DIYers, Hobbyists, common garage folks like you and us have to face different challenges.
What are the best tools and Where to get them at a pretty good price?
What are the factors you need to consider before buying any tool?
Safety measures you need to take. So, you make your work more secure and safe
How to work like a professional and make your work more effective.
These challenges are just like stuck-up gears in a cordless drill. So, in order to adjust and sharpen up these gears, I created the Tool Miner.
6th Cog – Terminology
In the terminology, you already know the word “Tool”. As for the “Miner”, it is a person who digs coal, salt, gold, minerals, or other natural resources out of the earth.
Same here is the case. I will be “Your Tool Companion” for digging up the online market and overcoming the above challenges.
