Short intro about Nigel Petrie
Fabrication has allowed me to fulfill many of my life goals, for me there is nothing more satisfying than designing, building and using something I have constructed with my own two hands. It's not just the thrill of the finished project, it's the journey to get to that point that I love equally as much. The beauty is in the detail and I love to document this through film, photography and written content. I live for a project and Engineered to Slide is my online garage where I aim to inspire and coach a whole new generation of fabricators setting out to achieve their goals”
Where I have trained and what have I achieved
After graduating from Cobden Technical School I went on to further studies at Geelong Tafe where I completed an Advanced Diploma in Engineering alongside my apprenticeship with Ford Motor Company, once a qualified Fitter and Turner I spent 14 years in the Research and Development Prototype area. It was my after hours activities that drove the Engineered to Slide brand, I built my very own space frame drift Hilux in my one car garage and in doing so inspired thousands around the world to follow their fabrication dreams, anything is possible if you set your mind to it. My biggest achievement is building the Engineered to Slide brand and my goal is to teach and inspire into the future.
Exciting new chapter
What began as a blog in 2006 has evolved to the launch of this very website, I am now dedicated to coaching you through your own journey and can’t wait to have you part of Engineered to Slides Online Fabrication School Subscription service, we often struggle when uneducated opinions from unreliable sources direct us into expensive projects leaving you doubting your abilities to successfully complete your project. I am here to coach you through each process and to offer real world advice on the hundreds of processes involved in fabrication.
