Hi, I started my career as a fitter turner for British Aerospace in the early 70s form there I went to Landover until the late 80s when I moved up to Scotland, were I was employed at Wood group until the late 90s machining aircraft components. I left wood-Group to study at University for a B/Eng Hons degree in Mechanical Engineering. After leaving University I worked in the oil industry for a short while before taking up a lecturing position in engineering. I am a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and a Member of the Engineering Council. I have been building models since I was sixteen and have always had an interest in machine tools and steam. My past experience has taught me a lot of complex machining operations, gear cutting, cutting spiral flutes, working to very tight tolerances. I find it such a pleasure to both see and hear that the model Engineer of today keep the hobby alive with such enthusiasm, and are so willing to learn what would be classed as elaborate In industry.
