Now retired after 47 years as a design draftsman.  Steam turbines, piping for machinery, satellite camera systems, and steel fabrication. (not all at the same time! )  And a side job as a mechanic the entire time.  Wholeheartedly agree with you Injected - 40 years in the design field is enough for anybody (then I went 7 years more - arrgh! ). I was kind of disappointed to convert to CAD work in the early 90's, I liked drawing by hand on a drafting board.  Now working on motorcycles as a "hobby" (obsession? )

Started worklife as electrical/electronic engineer (The Cummins Engine co.Ltd) Then electricain for British railways, then computer repairman till windows 10 sickened me, Online shopper and finally got my dream job taking vintage Japanese bikes to bits and restoring them for JMC restoration in Stockton on tees (www.jmcrestoration.uk/) We specailise in suzuki GT750 and other 2 stokes. I get landed with the 4 stokes (my preference) last year enjoyed doing a Kawaski GT550 shafty, and now imagine my delight doing a Kawaski Z500 B3 of all things. Shame it will look far cleaner than my owned from new 1980 Z500. 
1980 Z500 B2 owned from new 78260 miles
1980 Z500 B2 in bits since 1982 23000 miles

Funny enough I am a taxman in the UK since 2012. Before that I was an export administrator in various industries in Greece.
