STICK Machine Tools Project

STICK Machine Tools Project We aim to assess Scottish engineering and machine tools collections as an accessible resource for understanding basic engineering principles and processes.

The Scottish Transport & Industry Collections & Knowledge Network with Industrial Collections Officer Daniela Wellnitz will undertake an audit of historic machine tools collections across Scotland. This will result in curatorial outputs for a better understanding of machine tool collections, which will be shared with peers via a master catalogue. Based on this, the project will develop a series of

"Projects we have completed demonstrate what we know - future projects decide what we will learn." - Dr. Mohsin Tiwana -

With these encouraging words today we are kicking off the final four weeks of this adventurous project! Coming soon: The STICK Master Catalogue of historic #machine #tools listing various #industrial #museums in Scotland and essential guidance material for curators that will be accessible online! Exciting times....;-)

#Engineering quote of the day:

"It is not an accident that #musicians become musicians and engineers become #engineers: it's what they are born to do. If you can tune into your purpose and really align with it, setting goals so that your vision is an expression of that purpose, then life flows much more easily." Jack Canfield
