Best is, you build something that no one will ever need. A mechanical servant that bring you cold drinks or hot tea in the garden. Or a mechanical arm that holds the parasol straight in the right direction.

 

Some times later, you know what you really need - or your wife tells you...

That's everyday for me! I love building things. I look at something and see a glimmer of what I want out of it. Then go from there!

I built this loader 3 or 4 years ago. It was great fun to build, but never thought it would be so use full.  Only lifted by a winch, but gets most things done. Easier on the back and a lot more fun.   Noel

That's a cool looking setup.
