Back in Aug-2016, I purchased a 1988 GMC Grumman 23 ft stepvan. I put in 324 feet of 1.5 inch angle-iron, for shelving.

All the equipment listed below, is in this truck…


Just to have some steady income – I’ve been doing handyman contract work, for the past 6 years. Now that most of the needed equipment is in place, I think it’s time to start looking for some freelance projects – that deal with image production… 🙂

When possible, I also produce stock footage – for the Dissolve Stock agency. There’s a link in the SideBar…


Most of these line items, are in Dewalt equipment tote cases.
