Might not be spelled right by the way! Please correct if necessary.

It's a term I've heard used about old boys into engineering or techy industries.

Please clarify folks! Is it a friendly term or is it a bit 'unkind'?

The museum (who I mentioned above per the food and folk fest) is looking to create a men's club for tinkerers and such.

Do you mean luddite?

If your spelling is correct then I would suggest that you may be referring to a male ladder!

Guest, I think the derivation does indeed originate in Luddite. But I'm almost certain there is a colloquial / slang version in Lodder.. I'd just like some feedback on that.

In Denmark, lodder are weights; pieces of known weight.
Also a plumb bob.
Antique small weights with a handle, brass/bronze, are used as paperweights; there are collectors who have them in variety.

Also I have heard a wheel loader pronounced "lodder."
