I see some here think their job is not 'up to par' with some others. Every job is important. Even the trash cans need to be emptied or it makes a mess pretty quickly. I don't think anyone has a 'lowly' job. There is a place for each and every one of us in this world and it's important we all find where we fit in. In my mind, no person is more or less important than any other person.
Carry on. I find it interesting to see what each of us do with our lives.

I've made a die for a certain ammunition company out there. They were so frickin picky and demanding that we dropped them. And we were charging them triple what the last company had been to make their dies. We still make some wad cutter dies for them here and there.

That's a core from a .45 die I made. Their tolerances were impossible to hold.

Project manager for a bank. Working from home is the best part about it.

I manage my families diesel mechanic shop and will some day be the owner. Not really looking forward to that cuz that will mean my dad and grandad are gone. I've been pulling wrenches since I got my first tool kit for Christmas when I was 5 years old. As soon as I get it I went to work taking my grandads recliner apart. That thing never was right after that.

I'm a team leader at a local government communications center.

I like to fix and configure the sophisticated equipment and software the center runs.

Here's a project that I started a while back. Got pulled off in late April of this past year as I had to go on the road for a time. I got it framed up before I was pulled off though.

These are big timbers used in the framing. 28,000sq ft. and 90% single story.

Used a crane to set the timbers.
