    With an open mind they complement each other for a better solution that on their own neither could achieve

    I would trust an old tradesman for advice long before I would listen to anything that you have read about

    Trust no one, verify everything. Just because someone's been doing something for donkeys years doesn't mean it's right

    Don’t knock Bernie! He fitted central heating to his basement using scaffold poles.

    I use a Superfire 2 at work all the time to free off seized fasteners, bought on for home as well as it's handy for working on cars.

    Maybe one day I'll use it for the plumbing!.
