Sounds about right. By doing, right, wrong or otherwise, and never listening to others that may or may not know what they are talking about.

Other than training police dogs, though I have trained dogs, I have experience in everything you listed. Though I know just enough in some of those to know how little I know. Can I mix mortar and lay a brick or block? Sure. Would it take me five or ten times as long as a bricklayer? Yep. Would I give advice on it? Rarely. As I know my limits.

Glad though that you’re a self taught expert, whereas I’ve done actual apprenticeships, and guess what? I learned a LOT from listening, watching and paying attention.

Even with 30 years in the trade, I continuously learn new things. Why? Because I enjoy learning, and because I end up with different things that need done. A few years ago I started doing mobile or field machining. Totally different when you are basically building a lathe or boring mill in place to machine a part, versus doing it on a machine.

Anyway, if you’re willing to take the blinders off and open your horizon, maybe you’ll learn something. I’m sure you have things to share without needing to sledgehammer it in to everyone, but maybe not. All up to you.

Exactly! Why I ask about the "Ignore" button a while back. It only tends to give one ulcers to try and educate some folks. I discovered this during the 20 years I volunteered at the high school metal shop. :-)

FWIW I took your advice and bought that chinese drill grinder, and it works very well.
I just wish they put the smaller one on the same sale, I would buy it too.
