At the time this article was likely published on the internet, at the time you zipped through it perhaps, there’s just no telling how many commercial processing and manufacturing companies are still in existence. And you would have to refer to the relevant trade and industry departments to find out just how many new startups they have officially recognized. Maybe yours is one of them. But are the government departments keeping up even. Do they even know how many startup engineers they’re dealing with?
But maybe they’re still on to something. Maybe they’re checking for credentials, as they say. Are you really an engineer, as you say? Well, if you can do your own custom metal manufacturing work by now, then congratulations to you it can be supposed. But it’s okay if you are not there yet. Maybe you’re still getting your ducks in a row. Maybe you know a thing or two more than this writer and that reader over there.
Because you can be the best darn engineer in the world, and there’s still going to design and manufacture work best left to another artisan. But there is nothing stopping you from being part of the design and manufacturing process. You have an impression or estimation of what your workshop floor must look like. You can do a sketch of this. But if you can’t, well then, maybe your kid or the cleaner at work can do it for you.
He’s very kvetchy. What a waste of talent? Anyhow, you can still just talk to your engineer in person or online about what you have in mind, and he’ll start pulling out a sketch on his desktop program. This, and many more things, are good for starters.
