    Congrats, Dave! You did very well by that grain. Ten bucks for that pipe is a steal.

    What an excellent job, Dave. From rags to riches.

    That came out wonderfully after all that work. You folk doing that by hand have my kudos. I wouldn't think of it without all my machines. But I'm naturally lazy.

    I get the best results by combining the two; machine work for speed and accuracy, hand work for finesse.

    Well yeah, there is always some purely hand work. I use as much machine as I can employ first. Couple of friends of mine who were helping me build a couple of airplanes called me Steve horsepower after I pushed them out of the way with their spokeshaves and went after a shaping job with an angle grinder.
