Description of Apprenticeship:

Hello,
I run a one person workshop where I make small plastic products and sell them. My primary focus in on hobby products for tabletop wargames, model railroads, and slot car racing. I design items using 3d modeling and then make molds for plastic injection. Me and my workshop can be viewed on this you-tube video; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-g-SJ-P9Wg

I am also the supplier for some items for other people. I make things from cup holders to steampunk wings.

I am currently quite busy and I find the work very fulfilling to do. It is a so nice to be free from the hourly grind. However, this job is not all setting at a desk wiggling a mouse. It is drill press, grinding metal and busted knuckles. I do every step from concept to taping the box closed for the customers. Stuff breaks a lot. Here is a link to my blog which has lots more info on it. http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=8248742754594693022#editor/target=post;postID=1172812838885685909;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=0;src=postname

There are almost a hundred posts on there so it will really let you know how things go.

I would like to work with someone who might like this type of work. I will teach you everything I know and you can make products along the way. Must be willing to fail a lot and have bad days. Good days too. You will get dirty and scraped up. Band aids will be provided. You will also see your ideas go from your head and into the homes of people around the world. All made in the USA.


No liberals please, as we would just fight all the time.
