This was a hobby, besides engineering challenges on my day job. From 2002 to 2005, I designed and produced state-of-the-art gym & fitness equipment under my MSC trademark. Unlike usual commercial stuff on the market, these machines were designed and built for endurance, with frame lifetime warranty for professional use in gyms and fitness centers. Another interesting feature were gold and chrome plated parts. Due to career advancement, increased demand for Magma CMS and oncoming PhD studies, I had to set my priorities and sell this operation.
For a while, I also experimented with chrome and gold plating, hot rodding of air cooled VW engines, as well as production of wheel spacer and adaptor plates, custom lugs and bolts, lowering adjusters and other small parts for my other hobby.
