    DIY CHIC MACHINE for the GIRL'S workshop

    I will really need a welding positioner for the building of my skid steer and not only. It took a lot of welding and metalworking to create it, but I'm sooo happy with the result! Come check it out too and welcome to my YouTube channel for more videos

    Good work! I recommend your videos to girls here, there's no reason only boys should get to play with the big toys.

    Yes, great, congratulations !
    And finally, it's a lady who wins the tool of the week at HMT !
    This is great and I personally would prefer to see more and more women builders (and there are) than women in bikini on these pages.

    I don't even look at the bikini pages, just the machines and tools.

    I don't mind photos of pretty girls, but they're not the biggest attraction here, and that's for sure. Two thirds of my children are female, and I tried to teach them all that there are only two jobs that are gender-dependent. Bearing children, and fathering them. Everything else is just work, and gender has nothing to do with who does it. I changed diapers and fed my kids, from the day I brought the first one home from the hospital. Bought them their first tools and toolboxes, and tried to teach them as much as I could. I also wash dishes, cook, clean, and do laundry. I can sew on a button, and hem a pair of pants. It won't be pretty, but it will work!

    Grandma, who was a newly-wed during the Great Depression, taught all of her nine grandchildren to do lots of basic self-care tasks. I tried to do the same for my kids, and if I ever find out I have grandkids, will try to do the same for them.
