Working for my self gives me the flexibility to do things in the week.
Today I’ve visited the Morgan Motor Company Factory. This was a group trip for members of the Austin A30/A35 club. Members travelled from a wide area and we met up with a subgroup at a cafe for a proper breakfast. If you are ever near J1 of the M50 I highly recommend Ye Olde Hutte Cafe.
We then travelled onto the factory. The tour costs £20 and we first watched a film on the history of the company and then went on a tour starting with viewing some older vehicles.
Not a robot in sight, this is traditional car-marking where you can join and undertake a 5-year apprenticeship. I didn’t take notes so can’t list all stages in the process but hope the photos give you some idea on what it’s like.
It’s not all focused in the past. They use a 3D printer for making samples and these can help with tool setting all getting a bit technical for me now. Visit the website if you would like to learn more of the history and the car building process.
