Congrats on purchase of a Chris!!
1. Person who works often on engines and the like
2. Person who operates items correctly
3. Person who can build or repair various items
4. Person smart to know a good deal when they see one!
You obviously are all four! Numbers 1 and 2 you simply are. You will get much use out of # 3 quality mentioned in this definition of "mechanic". # 4 you just proved yourself to be!
