Mechanical Engineering & Resume

I have been doing design drafting and mechanical engineering since 1963. I have a good background in manufacturing and a patent too. My last customer gave me a new Ford truck as a reward for the high quality work that I did for them. I am not actively looking for permanent employment - I have one customer and work 60 - 80 hours a month for them. I use Solid Edge 3D solids Modeling software. Check out some of the stuff I designed - the Oven systems were big enough to walk around in - 8 feet tall by 14 feet long. I did a lot of Ball Grid Array tooling for "The big M". I have machines at IBM, Motorola, Xerox and other companies. I was the Mechanical Engineer for the Jerome Instrument Instrument Corporation and also helped 2 machine shops in Cottonwood get started.

I am really good at what I do and I basically am selling... competence.
