This forum is such a useful resource.

The info reinforces that the old school, “we can fix it” people are retiring, and not being replaced.


A few years ago it was difficult to find someone who could repair an alternator on my old Mercedes van.
Found an “old guy”, probably retired or dead by now, who could do it - he was mildly surprised that I was only bringing in the alternator after he advised that the large van wouldn’t fit in his workshop.

So the message for all us is not to retire, we need to promote and pass on our skills to the next generations.
Thumbs Up!

That would be ideal.
But it seems most young people (but not all) would rather be “influencers” than trades people.
I’m told by my friends still working in the trades, that the newbies think they should be “off the tools” and into management as soon as they finish their apprenticeship.
