Its sort of like this..some people are hands on types, mechanically minded and go through life , fixing their own cars, repairing the mower, building their own garages, Turned their own metal gizmos on their lathe in the shed at home, perhaps knocking up a table or bench for the shed...they have that mechanical, anylitical brain, they get into this game and use the same skills to solve problems...

Now ,they may have worked in an acoountants office for many years prior to getting out and opening up their Engraving business, but their skills work them through many a problem...

The next Bloke has come through a Fitting and Turning background, he has done his apprenticeship with a Boilermaking firm or other metal production company and has had a formal education in metal work/ fitting etc, plus the benefit of being trained under a master...These blokes have a trained perspective, many know the traditional ways to achieve a result and a somewhat confused when the "Home Garage method of problem solving ,type of bloke" puts forward a solution....Many times it may be a little more convoluted or wrong way around, to get the same solution..but they still get there.

The Trained eye may say," but it is the Wrong way to achieve the result" or the untrained eye ( the home shed tech )" may say, but I can do it this way and still achieve the same result, albeit it in an uncoventional and non trade trained way..

the end result is what matters and many different perspectives allow the non Techs among us to see how the Techs perceive things and vice a versa, the Techs can wonder how the Untrained can achieve the same result using some novel and untrained methods...

We all in turn learn something.

Yet some comments back question my sanity

But not for your suggestions!! That is a stock question for anyone who ever got into this industry! LOL

It's the diversity of people and their equally diverse opinions that keep me glued to the forum.

So far, nobody's died from strangulation, but we've had several get blue in the face :P

I maybe be mistaken. It's happened once....... today........but I think what logojohn was trying to get across i his post is, just because you may not like a response....don't go diss'n it, just take what you need and leave the rest....... we have a great group of intelligent people here......all with different opinions methods and points of view....live and let live....blah blah blah....
