I'm a water treatment specialist. I operate a water treatment system for a small town pumping water out of a mud bottomed river and turning it into drinking water. I retired from the AF in 86. Was a substitute teacher for 10 years and each year it got worse, so I hit the books again and became a water treatmenst specialist. I'm pretty much semi retired now, just working on the weekends.

Well-when I worked, It was in a shop where we built and engineered machines that manufactured other things, like boxes, timing chains, oil pumps, we made the machines that made these machines, I was the trouble shooter for all metals of all types, to make them re-shape conform and weld or fasten them, that was my $$ job, my other Job was a stained glass artist, church windows, custom glass work, NOW- RETIRED=RETIRED= just detect and do R/C cars

Please tell me that you have an ammo bag full of gold nuggets that you use for hunting. That would really impress me!

I currently work as a Third Mate/Dynamic Positioning Operator on a 213' commercial saturation diving vessel in the Gulf of Mexico. We perform maintenance and repairs on oil and gas platforms and pipelines up to about 800 feet deep in the most extreme cases though most often its 300 feet or less. In the past I've ran Master on a 190' vessel (and considering chasing another Master's slot currently), did a little over 4 years in the US Army infantry, worked a longliner (fishing boat) in Alaska for about 2 years, and finally ran a little 27' charter boat for the Army whilst I was stationed up there, too. That's where I got my start in boats.

This has been a pretty interesting thread; it's interesting to see what everyone else does/did.

I am an electrician by trade.
currently employed at a big fabricating company where i am employed as an electrical technician, in the engineering dept.
It is a lot of fun and many different projects to work on.
high tech electronics and service installation and machine troubleshooting is my specialty though.
