Nahhhh, come on rick, I love cutting a piece of wood wroing then using a hammer to make it fit, practice does make perfect. I'm just THAT good at hitting the wood into place after all these years of incorrect measuring ;)
Remember that if it aint broke, you're not trying :)
The carpenters union that I grew up in taught me: measure twice, cut once. Even when framing, my father insisted on measuring to the nearest 1/16" so that combined errors could not grow to more than 1/8". As a Civil Engineer and an Army Engineer Officer, I saw too many times where nobody measured and then the idiots couldn't figure out what went wrong.
I find a strong resistance by younger guys to "read the manual". They want to instantly know. The secret to almost everything is patience and research. Even though I've been working on cars and small engines for about 50 years, I still read through the manual before starting. The ten minutes spent reading often saves me alot more in the long run. Just realized, its been 49 years since I got my drivers license and car. Duct tape is the secret weapon. Good Luck, Rick
