You are mistaken. This can not possibly work.

Yep, sorry bikerboywill, I'm calling BS on this, you obviously haven't got a clue what you're on about. I hope you aren't planning on retiring anytime soon if this is your level of understanding. Especially when you take into account how much it'll cost to sort out your dodgy British teeth. Oh, and by the way, your countrymen are shit at rugby, even though they spanked Australia a few weeks ago. lol

I think the last 5 or 6 pages of this thread has given me brain cancer.

Just report all of walkingtall76's post since he's basically just spamming the thread at this point.

Yeah, I guess our Australian friend mistook unemployed for being retired.
But you're probably right on the money about the teeth though.

It's just a matter of how you look at it. We should all strive to be so optimistic.

Here's a guide on how to retire three years after finishing(?) school.

F_ck me, what a tool he was.

So keen to prove his mega intellect and experience that he failed to see that it's already a proven method for fixing creeky press fit BB's, and missed out on the fact that just because something is 'press fit' doesn't mean it's an 'interferance fit'. One's a fitment method the other is a fixation.

I'll let the personal insults slide, R-M-R has him bang to rights. I can only assume his parents don't usually let he near a web connected computer.

This was entertaining. A realtor selling Gold Coast holiday homes, debating an actual well respected engineer for a bunch of pages. I really appreciated that his brother in law was a plumber.

Anyone make anything sweet as of late?

Bought a fairly large Lodge and Shipley counter shaft lathe a while back. I've been trying to learn the ins and outs of it with limited success. I'm working on a a new thread profile for oilfield tubulars, the goal is to end up with something similar in cost to an St&c or lt&c thread but with better torque handling and two integrated sealing methods. I'm hoping I can patent the design and sell it to tenaris or another tubular company and retire before 30, we will see how it goes.

That sounds like a good idea, and a possible outcome.
A couple of things to keep in mind:
If you wanna sell IP, and receive a significant amount of cash for it, you have to get things through the patent process, which takes you something like 5 to 6 years, with the right people involved, from the time of application, and some $100k+.

I've done this a number of times by now, and another thing most people seem to not pay attention to, is the prior art. A large part of getting a patent, is to make sure there's no conflicting prior art. This again is fairly time consuming, and will cost you some cash too.
It's well worth it in the end, as it prevents you from wasting time and money, and a potential buyer will want to see such work done. They will do their own due dilligence anyway, but they may not even bother dealing with you if you have not done so.
This also is a fine way to get inspiration for optimization of your own IP.

.....and early retirement is nicer as a dream, than once you can actually do so. Then you figure that what you did to get there was actually quite good fun, and will in one way or another continue.
It's much like anything else you covet. Once you can just go and buy yourself that Porsche, you realize it's got no room for the bikes, and you get a stationcar that you drive all the time anyway. Sooner or later you're down to the stationcar as the only vehicle, cause the dream of owning a Porsche was much nicer than actually owning one.

Beating your chest, yelling "I'm right and you're wrong, cause I'm retired" on public forums, most people that actually makes it to an early retirement, well, they learned enough on the way to not do that. Big Grin

A former colleague in oilfield set up a company based off of his IP, he licensed it out at a few cents per foot drilled with his tech. Needless to say, absolutely minted, but he still came in to work to do other things as he loved his job so much.

My name is on a couple of patents but unfortunately my employment contract meant they're the property of the employer. Got a couple of hundred quid as a bonus for each of them though so better than nothing.

Also, as I'm sure you're finding out, designing oilfield threads is HARD. Then you've got to make sure any customers believe you when you say it's compliant with API Spec 7 / DS1 etc.
