Bob Beacham


Bob Beacham has always had a fascination for all things mechanical and received an engineering degree from Aylesbury College in the UK. During his 35-year career, he has worked on everything from automotive components to oil rigs. On weekends you will often find him tinkering with a car or motorcycle. He’s also a DIY enthusiast, and with a great deal of help from his wife has completely renovated two derelict buildings, turning them into comfortable homes. He now splits his time between contract work and writing articles that share his practical experience. He may be the last person on earth who isn’t on Facebook, Twitter, or Linkedin.
