About the founder

My name is Justin Barnes, I am the founder and owner of The Gear Shak. I have been interested in these type of items since my childhood and as I have aged, my passion for them has only grown. I currently work in factory maintenance but my range of experience includes small engine repair, agricultural equipment maintenance, and as an aircraft maintenance technician. Combining my years of hobby experience with these products and using them professionally, I have developed a good understanding of what works well for certain tasks and what type of traits to look for in particular products.
