Thanks Vini, funny, your not the first to tell me that... I always thought I was behind the curve not ahead of it...... For me it just seems the attitude of today is just about making money as fast as possible.. Wheres the pride people used to have? (not ego, theres plenty of that!)
As far the things I listed in my previous post, Ive found the old stuff to be built better and require less maintenance, for instance my push mower requires nothing but to be sharpened and oiled once in awhile and my razor just needs a strop before each use.
Most of the time "Modern" bites me in the butt...
I use to be a sawsmith and we had a quote hung on the wall "The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the cheap is forgotten" and its so true, I see it everywhere, most everything today is made cheap or to be thrown away. Its even in the attitude of people, is seems they just do their job and dont really care how as long as their getting paid.
I like to have pride in what I do, and do it to the best of my ability, even if it takes a little longer and costs a little more. Ive found it ends up taking less time and money in the long run. It just turns out better.
I gotta ask Vini.. Does you avatar have anything to do with the Fibonacci Sequence? I dont know why but it makes me think of it....
