G’day Keith firstly I would like to thank you for running this marvelous giveaway its truly inspiring.
secondly I would like to nominate myself Andre Mausli for the giveaway. I am 20 years of age and live / work in Sydney Australia on the weekend I travel 200 km (120 miles) to my dads house on the south coast to play with my shop.
I have been setting up the shop there since I was 10 years old . Making stuff has always been a passion of mine when I was 3 my favorite toy was this old angle grinder my dad gave me. When I was 13 my dad got me a lathe and I have been hooked on machining since. I currently work 4 days a week at a small machine shop and 1 day and two nights go to trade school for machining and fluid power. when I am not working I am working at home and when I am in Sydney I am watching all you guys on you tube. If I won I would treasure them for the rest of my career and share them in future videos
