I have to agree with you I tried my best to get my yougest grandson interested in mechanical engineering but all he wanted to do was work on big trucks. he is as happy now as a pig in its big doobries, and am am sure with a little bit of grandads help will start his own company eventually.
Everery one to there own I have learned over 70is years.

Thread: Conversion Chart
24/03/2013 18:42:06

A Fantastic idea mine are all getting verry worn out, Conversion chart from Imperial to Dec, drilling charts, you name them. Thankyou think that will go down a bundle with everyone.
It would also help any new person starting up yes go for it

BUT I do not take MEW so how about including it in the forum or getting Dianne and team to take the idea on board!!!!
