I know I know... It's like twice the price and my visions are a bit more grandiose but speaking of bugs, this one caught my eye about a week ago as a super fun ride! Not to mention, toyota reliability!

Either one would do! If I had stupid money and an eight car garage, there would definitely be a spot for a Baja Bug.

Anyone want a job? I'm ready to quit... I now know first hand why so many people I've worked around say they hate working with true engineers. Unfortunately this new engineer is also my new boss. I'm already looking for ways out of this. It's absurd. Let's speak real world here. I design parts for a car that just celebrated it's 50th anniversary. I design parts for a car that's 50 years old using alien technology compared to what they did back then. On a drawing he found a hole placement for a part that gets riveted to the car that was off in location by 0.02mm. Here, I'll do the math for you. The hole is off... Ready for this??? .000787 of an inch. I've got to fix that, you know... Just in case the rivet might not line up. I've gotta suck it up and stick this out till Jan of '15. I'm fully vested in my 401K program that month. Deal with it... Deal with it... Deal with it...

BTW, there's a total of 4 of us in this department right now including him. One announced his retirement before this guy was hired so that was already in motion. He bumped up that by over a month though cause of this guy. His last day is this Friday. My other counterpart has been here 7 years, he's fully vested, he's looking for jobs. I've been here 5.5 years, my opinion is above. New guy has been here 6 weeks.

I would think each application would have a defined acceptable margin of error. I'll bet the high quality Chinese manufacturing is going to result in a larger margin of error then .02mm.

I feel your pain Khris. Just got briefed on a quality assurance fail that I now have to explain to my boss. The fail? Oh, just a signature that extends slightly above the signature block on a set of aircraft forms.

Not necessarily the owner but the general manager who runs the show day to day definitely is well aware of my feelings. I don't sugar coat things when I speak with him and he actually appreciates it. The owner himself isn't around that often really...

FYI, a little google fun... Google tells me human hair is .004" Some rough rounding so don't hold me to the fire here but my hole location is roughly 1/5th of a hair off in location! Forgot to mention on top of that that I already oversized the hole purposely to allow for a bit of slop while installing the rivet.

NOOOOO not a fifth of a hair!

i know how you feel. Whenever I have worked with engineers on projects or in school its ridiculous. It's bad when they are clients too, everything has to be exact. NO, fool, this is landscape, it doesnt have to be measured to the fraction of an inch. Hell, if we get it within about a foot of whats on the plan i'd say its a success! lol

Common sense and real world doesn't exist in their mind! This is the type that's never actually built anything, he's only designed it. Not sure he knows what a screwdriver is honestly.

My whole family is engineers (pa, ma, sister) so I know how that goes. at least dad wasnt all nutso like that.

He would always have to go out onto the floors and show the guys parts who were actually building the stuff and make sure it could actually be built.

This is what I love about my job, I'm never right nor expected to ever be exactly right ever. All I've got to be is close most of the time and if I'm ever way off I can normally come up with some highly technical BS on why it's not my fault things did not come out as projected. Just talked my way out of a 1.2 million dollar oops this morning that another underwriter in the department made last year.
