    Work as a Maintenance Electrician on Industrial automation for a Large company in MN. I fix the computer controls inside the machines that make the parts in the items you use every day. Been doing this with them for 22 yrs, 30 plus years in all. Employer does not allow pics to be taken of equipment (proprietary stuff).

    Bought a 1990 310 Sundancer that needs some minor repairs (she's almost 30). Looking at updating the berth and cockpit areas. The cabin carpet has to go, blue shag.

    Well, I'll jump in... Some of you know who I am and know that I used to be on this site all the time... My career has taken off and I'm usually busy fighting the corporate fires that accompany what I do. I enjoy it and I think it's interesting. I am a CAD monkey by heart. I love using the software to create parts and then have them created into tangible objects. Here's a few of the projects I've been working on over the past 8 years!!! best view.png Exploded.png cad.PNG emotor.png

    Hillside, that is some beautiful work. When I looked at the first photo I thought the tractor was parked beyond the gate. It wasn't until I looked at #2 and #3 that I realized they were part of the gate.

    Danged nice work.

    It blows my mind what some of you guys do/create. Good for you! The American dream is alive and well. After a career in law enforcement, my wife and I opted to hang out at the marina and help those that needed/wanted help with their boats, so we started a business detailing boats. It’s not technical, but sometimes does D423E90E-B033-4B4D-86D4-3C1291A55BCD.jpeg take a decent touch with a buffer to bring back the beautiful to gelcoat. It’s hard work, but rewarding.

    In the immortal words of Lloyd Dobler:
    “I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.”

    So with that being said I fly airplanes for a living.
