    What's your day job?

    i work for a company called miniature precision components (mpc). we are a plastic/rubber injection facility. we make auto components that go straight to ford, Chrysler, gm, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Honda, Harley Davidson assembly line. almost every vehicle on the road has a part made by one of the mpc companies. there are several companies all over the U.S.A.
    most of the parts my company makes go in the engine bay area of the automobile. most of the plastic bottles, the caps, the rubber seals. a lot of plastic tubing with rubber connectors/elbows. some of those beauty covers on top of newer motors. cumins diesel parts.

    we also make the chrome oil cap for Harley Davidson. if you have a new Harley. check your oil cap. if it has a chrome cap then under that a rubber plug with a plastic dip stick. ha, ha. i made the rubber plug in my rubber injection mold machine. we also make a rubber bottle cap for Harley.

    we use to make 6, and 8 inch wheel for honda push mower.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    I blow smoke and pass gas lol. I work on oil and gas production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico testing fire/smoke detection systems and calibrating gas detectors. It's all safety work. Also work on fog horns and navigational lights that keep mariners safe. We travel a lot by helicopters and boats. It's a adventure everyday. A lot of butt time that I pass using this forum and buying parts for my rcs. We eat a lot too.

    I own a company in the construction business specializing in retaining wall structures. 34 years and going strong. Wish I owned a R/C hobby store. But then it would all be work and no fun.

    Same here. I'm finishing up high school and in my spare time I drive my slash and mow lawns and do yard work for a landscaping company. I plan to go to collage and become a mechanical engineer though.

    I'm a pizza driver, it can be an interesting job. What is strange is how stressful and busy the store will be inside and then you come in and take one pizza then you're back to driving at a steady pace on the road.
    I like turtles.

    I work for Coca-Cola, plant where I work is a non-carbonated production plant. It is a heck of a process, and the machinery is pretty interesting. Still in college too working towards my engineering degree, though I still don't know where that is going to take me.

    An Engineering degree will take you where ever you want it to.

    The hard part is deciding which field of engineering to specialize in, kind of torn between electrical and mechanical.

    My job title is Information Systems Network Administrator / Enterprise Application Developer.

    In a nutshell, I make sure the computers run and talk to the Exchange servers and Internet, and the users have access to the systems-wide applications that I set up and deploy. Been doing this for the past 11 years. I'm vying for a promotion to a Department Lead position that just opened up this week. Wish me luck!

    Before all this, I was a licensed mechanic until I realized making my hobby a job was a bad idea. So after about 15 months I changed course and was an EMT for 10-1/2 years.
    I shot an elephant in my underwear last night...
