I am on lunch break from working in the factory today, and I'm having so much fun! It's engineering in it's most direct and hands-on fashion. We are solving problems and getting things done ...slowly. It reminds me of my trail building days due to the building aspect and the rock climbing days as far as the organization and direction aspect.
I am learning quite a bit. A few things:
A variety of wrench extensions will likely be useful for hard to reach places.
Rubber and urethane compress significantly under load.
Decisions involve opportunity costs and sacrifices, tough.
