Well, I have lathe and milling machine, both small, but I think I can manage most anything that would be required for the work I've mentioned.

I need to build out some space in the basement for a little shop.

So "I'm your huckleberry" means "I'm just the man you're looking for!"
From the short article:

I'm Your Huckleberry!

Huckleberry "definition":

The way I've heard it, since Huck was quite the rascal, the meaning of this comment is to be taken as "I'm your worst nightmare".

all very interesting.

we have slang terms of our times, so it's fun to learn and understand the slang of that era as well.

( and might be fun to use the slang of that era, too. i.e. Thanksgiving and other family get-togethers )
