I'm a retired mechanical technologist, graduate of Ryerson, 1952. My work was in machine, tool and product design. I also registered a number of inventions. One returned about $1,000,000 in royalties.
I was part of the Avro, Orenda Engines Group, and designed mechanical tset equipment for the Avro Arrow. After that truck trailers for Canadian Trailmobile, where I designed did the first production shipping containers made in Canada, also dump trailers, stake and rack, and numerous special purpose tralers. Following that I was chief engineer for Reynolds Extrusion Co., Later worked for two other aluminum companies where an assembly machine I designed won 1984 gold productivity ward. I retired in 1986 after setting up two plants for a Nigerian Co. Since then I have gradually got into investing, which
now provides about half of my income.
