Dave Weinman On Secret Restoration
History Channel’s new series Secret Restoration is just as it sounds. The show follows a team of restoration experts including Dave Weinman who work diligently to restore old heirlooms inside a tool factory, but without letting owners of these items know they’re getting special restoration treatment.
Dave, alongside Leah Bolden, PJ Burchett, David Dall, Alfred Dill, Sara Porter, and LaTasha “LA” Thym, worked on these objects in the show’s “secret factory” reportedly located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. And it could be true for Dave himself tagged the location of Bridgeport on a FB post of him working on a 150-year-old cannon carriage in the Secret Restoration factory.
“ROLL OUT THE GUNS – All done. Hundreds of hours of work, multiple parts made from scratch, dozens of raw castings hand fit and finished. Rotten steel cut out and new steel welded in. Bodywork, Bondo, sanding, paint, the list goes on,” he wrote at the time.
Also, a few days before he shared a few pics of the restoration team and the factory on FB, captioned, “MORE SHOPLIFE – Gang. I can’t express how excited I am about this Wednesday. The project I spearheaded took me hundreds of hours to complete and required reverse engineering 140-year-old parts to make them from scratch on the mill and lathe.”
Interestingly, anyone can apply to be on an upcoming episode of the series. If you have an item of any historical significance you want to be restored, just apply on their official website stating you’re relationship with the owner of the item.
How Much Is Dave Weinman Net Worth?
Dave Weinman flaunted a net worth of above $700 thousand. But let us tell you it’s not all from restorations!
This expert restorer is also a firefighter. His LinkedIn mentioned Dave to be a “Cadet” in the City of Philadelphia.
Taking about his work, Dave said that as a firefighter he used to have half of the inventory of the fire store in his pockets. A few months later, he then realized that it was impossible to be combat effective and weigh as much as a cruise ship anchor. Thus, he personalized his gear to carry just what he needed to get the job done while staying lightweight and mobile. “Nothing fancy, just a couple sharp edges, a few wood chocks, enough rope to get me out of trouble and a charged flashlight keeps me “Combat Ready” every tour,” he said.
To be precise about his salary as a firefighter, Dave was annually paid $68,145 in 2017, $76,223 in 2018, $76,187 in 2019, and $78,092 in 2020.
Now, coming to his passion for restoration, he first discovered it while refinishing a colleague’s old fire helmet. A decade later, he then found himself restoring old tools, machinery, weaponry, and a multitude of vintage gizmos. Today, this history buff is also a part of Secret Restoration.
