Sexy at 71 super mod..
Know it all, know nowt breed are just a damaging drain on the country:frown2::frown2:They used to be one of my customers.
Can't remember the guy's name of the top of my head but their chief tooling engineer was an old school engineer...bin there, done it, wrote the book and designed the tee shirt. Didn't suffer fools gladly and the pair of us got on like a house on fire.
I think we agreed more deals by the coffee machine or outside having a ciggy then we ever did in his office.
Guys like him were getting fewer and fewer, new blood brought up on computers and not getting their hands dirty. I never could get on with them sort.
My problem is that I spent almost all my working life with old school engineers.Know it all, know nowt breed are just a damaging drain on the country:frown2::frown2:
Not a rant at all mate its the truth, theory never cut it with me but hands on wins every time and that is a fact, manual wins over theory,fact!:wink2:My problem is that I spent almost all my working life with old school engineers.
Some with very few qualifications but a wealth of experience, some with very high qualifications but earned the hard way, often at night school.
All quite prepared to get their jackets off and their hands dirty, all very capable.
Worked all around the world with engineers from major car plants, steel works, component suppliers and whatever, didn't matter what language they spoke, they were engineers and we understood each other.
Then, as apprenticships died out and higher level jobs were invariably filled with oiks with degrees, the rot set in, more interest in buzz words, statistics and FMEA (failure mode effect analysis) along with project schedules such as critical path analysis then actually getting the job done.
Ridiculous when a project could be deemed a failure cos the paperwork was wrong even though it did all it should.
And vice versa...we've ticked all the boxes so it is good to go....but does it work ? (Boeing software ? )
Sorry, rant over.
me as well in collage we learnt theory, that eve in the workshop as was told now try it theory is just that it dont always work just helps you understand it , then when you go back to work for the rest of the week you learn ten times moreDon't get me started on this one.
A manager at a company I worked for had an often voiced ambition to make something for a penny, that everyone wanted and would pay a shilling for......Anyone remember how many jobs went, when points dizzys and condensers were not used................
We are going to see a lot of this..
Electric engines, no sensors really needed, so one sector gone..
Battery makers, another one..
Filters, only will need two now instead of the 4..
Spark plugs ( so champion , and the likes, ) Glow plugs..
Lots of things being taken off,
Anyone remember how many jobs went, when points dizzys and condensers were not used..
Diesel and Petrol sales will drop, so more little forecourts will shut..
And thats just looking under the bonnet lid..
Dealers will have to send their Techs on courses, someone will need to pay, labour charges will rise for eleccy cars as opposed to the other fuels..
5 years time, when it all kicks off, and all these idiots have realised what a bo77ock drop they have made. It will be too late..
Glad to say ( Selfish as it may seem ) Leccy cars will have no impact on me..
But any one under 40, ..
These are going to pay a high price for this technology, wont be a mornings wage to buy a Car on HP, it will be a full days pay..
Soooo no engines needed then obviously no vehicles needed, net result! total shutdown:frown2::frown2:Saw a news report today saying that the closing of the engine plant in My native wales is due to the lack of demand for the Jaguar/Land rover Dragon Ford engines.. Jaguar land rover are undergoing a slump in demand for their cars so no engines needed..its as simple as that..:frown2:
