Any industrial engineering fans here?

Whenever I try and talk to family or friends enthusiastically about the big machines we make at work I am met by the sort of face people put on when trying to be polite to street drunks while planning a swift escape.

I think the machines we build are cool, but outside of the industry I'm not terribly sure anyone gives a poopy bum, which is a challenge when trying to get mates to help me out increasing 'likes' and watch counts when I make videos of the machines (which is a part of my job).

The machine in the video I have just finished working on winds a paper(ish) material that rips very easily, and it winds it very fast indeed. If you have a passing interest in very clever machines (or like those 'how it's made' programs) you might enjoy this video.

I got excited at the idea of someone else interested in our industrial engineering heritage, you've let me down :sad:

I like my machines big, heavy, breathing steam, petrol, diesel or aviation fuel designed by men with pencils and slide rules

By default I'm also very interested in our industrial heritage. I'm not one for heroes, but Isengard Kingdom Brunel is the closest I've got to having a hero.

My dad is a huge steam railway fan, and even all these years later a holiday doesn't feel like a proper holiday unless we go for a ride on a steam train.

Here's the wicked woodsman bit...



I once had a girlfriend who could eat corn on the cob in much the same way.

Missing nip guards? How does it meet the Machinery Directive?
