I think that’s a straw man argument, Don. Nobody is arguing that quality woodwork cannot be done with simpler tools. The argument, to me, is why people would be so complacent as to allow their tools to perform at less than capability? To me, it’s as much a safety issue as anything else.

Or, why would I choose to us a certain tool for a job when there are safer and more precise options?

There are people who struggle with skil saws for any number of reasons, but would feel right at home with a big cabinet saw…and vice versa.

Yes, you should learn to use the tools you have…but that shouldn’t mean people shouldn’t look for better ways of doing something. Too often something bad has to happen before we realize we need a different tool for the job.
