So what do you do when your not playing guitar ? Thought it might be interesting to find out what other professions and hobbies members might have. Myself I have worked in the industrial manufacturing enviroment for the last 30 years. I took an Industrial electrians apprenticeship in 1979. I have worked in the Steel industry, Automotive and Particleboard manufacturing facility. Currently I have been in the Food industry for the last three years. I work a lot with automated lines, setup programming and troubleshooting. A lot of high speed packaging equipment. It's been an interesting career so far, technology has exploded over the last 10 years. I also have my own business where I install alarm panels, cameras, access sytems and LAN network cabling. Just something to fill in those idle moments...

I am a Continuous Polymerization Instructor at a manufacturing plant. I train the guys to sit in a control room and eat doughnuts all day like Homer Simpson....

...and I'm not cutting my hair:tongue:
They kidnapped, err highered me anyways. I've been doing it for nearly 30 years now. Still haven't cut my hair and I refuse to shave. Let's just say, you never want to meet me professionally.

Sweet!! I used to see those being test driven on the track behind my office. A friend of mine just left where I am now, and started working there. I believe he just started this week in the quality department.

I myself did sales for quite a number of years in the motorcycle/snowmobile market throughout Canada.

I'm now in the automotive industry as a shift leader.

Me too...but never a dull moment! :banana: The past 6 years have been a blur for me. I always say my claim to fame is a significant reduction in workplace injuries and environmental incidents since I got out of operations and into EH&S. We never had a trainer like Tarl, but I still managed to eat an awful lot of donuts during my 10+ years as a plant operator...I had to cut back on these things since I started flying a desk.

HAHA, you're right...you never know what's coming your way in this field. I've recently started in it (6 months) and am still adjusting to it. I guess, for me, the only :zzz: part is the paperwork that comes with it. I enjoy the project work. I may be PM'ing you for some tips! :food-smiley-004:
