Thought you were a Draughtsman Ray?

Posted by: raymyjamie (4560)  Report abuse
Stuart, I was BOTH a Draughtsman and a Design Engineer in my previous life when I had a reason for getting up in a morning.
I worked for 50 years in Engineering, so progressed up the scale.
In the early Eighties the introduction of computer Aided Design (CAD) brought on the demise of the traditional Draughtsman, ie Pencil and drawing board and replaced it with PC based technology.
Later software in the Nineties saw the introduction of Parametric 3D software.
I have "Autocad" software on my PC, and try to keep my hand in.

Ray, didn't being an Engineer require having a bachelors degree or being chartered?

Yep... bachelors in origami

Take whatever you fancy, do not assume.

Taking the clock apart.

Yes, I have to admit to that one. How well I remember.

It was though, very instructive: a weight driven, striking, long case, pendulum clock, with deadbeat escapement.

Soz Stuart, I missed your 1st Mar 18-23 post.

I have a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Mechanical Engineering, and thatís probably the minimum qualification you would need.
Some companies of course may require a degree.
Itís horses for courses, depends on the company and the product youíre designing.
