I can definitely see where the tools and knowledge in the machinist trade would be a god send PK. Has there ever been times when someone asked for advice on restoring a tool and as you relayed the steps you would take you found yourself stopping for a moment and saying to yourself “Oh yeah, this person isn’t a machinist…?”

teejk – Funny you should mention geometry. That was a subject I had few memories of taking in HS but found great satisfaction in discovering that I had retained in adulthood. I was making mitered flower boxes one time and had a ball making different geometric patterns because I remembered that all angles equal 360 and all I had to do was divide the quantity of angles by that number to come up with the proper degree on my miter saw. Very basic but still produced a moment of glee for me :)

-- There is little that is simple when it comes to making a simple box.
