About Busted Knuckle Garage

A little over a decade ago we had one of those days which inevitably turned into a very long week, where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Threads stripped, drills broke, spanners slipped and last but not least, our knuckles ended up bloodied and busted.  

Frustrated and sore while reaching into the fridge to get a few cold beers to share with a couple of mates that had arrived to investigate my progress, and drown my sorrows, I sarcastically commented that my shed was nothing but a ‘busted knuckle garage’.

From that day on the locals dubbed our shed “The Busted Knuckle Garage”, and it sometimes became abbreviated to simply the “Knuckle”.

That shed was located in the tiny northeast Tasmanian town of Winnaleah and it became a popular gathering place on Friday nights where our friends would drop in for a few cold beers and chat about the week that was. One casualty of these Friday night sessions was that our large stubby cooler collection (over 400) eroded away to barely a few coolers (just 3) in just a few short months.

Thankfully a solution was not far away and with the arrival of our new “The Busted Knuckle Garage” sign for the front of the shed we arranged to get some “Stolen from “The Busted Knuckle Garage” stubby coolers made. We figured if people were going to steal our coolers they might as well know where they stole them from. 

But it wasn’t all drinks and partying, we still had a healthy passion for working on our bikes and cars, as well as doing maintenance and repairs on some local trucks and tractors.

Change it seams is inevitable and a few years later we had to move, thankfully to a bigger shed too. Now our “Busted Knuckle Garage” is located in Scottsdale, still in picturesque northeast Tasmania.

Bigger is better too, we’ve now got a 4-metre bar, pool table and the shed is now fully air-conditioned. The workshop is bigger too, and along with maintaining vehicles and motorcycles we’re making a few video clips on workshop tips and tricks that will hopefully save you from ending up with ‘busted knuckles’.

Entry to our facility is by appointment only and our ‘Limited Edition’ stubby coolers are available on eBay.
