My journey started off by going into the motor industry just after school and I quickly realised that was not God’s plan for me. I then started working at a hydraulic company called Mr. Hose, and was there for three and a half years. I always made myself available for overtime. During these three years, my character changed as my experiences developed – I gained more knowledge, purpose and understanding in life. Over the next few years I gained more experience working for Continental China and Hyflo Southern Africa. I’ve realized that I enjoy working with my hands, and have been building small scale projects at home. This has taught me the value of time management, working towards a deadline, and focussing being quick, neat and correct. This brought out a very hardworking side of myself that I didn’t previously realise was there, as one project finished, I challenged myself to a new one. I’ve always enjoyed the challenges of mechanical engineering in hydraulics and pneumatics. Having spent 10 years in the trade, these are some of the skills I’ve developed: • Stripping and assessing motors and pumps • Repairing of cylinders • Stripping and doing maintenance on hydraulic power packs • Building pneumatic cylinders according to the drawings • Testing and charging accumulators • Pressure testing air pipes, air receivers and hoses • Stripping of control valves • Working on sites • Pipe bending • Fault finding on vessels • Working on oil rigs, De Beers vessels and fish boats • Building to drawing an electrical stop-start panel with a digital temperature switch • Building transfer units • Assessing thread fittings
