Oh, my bad!
Still, I find myself re-engineering all sorts of things. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that I'm a machinist with an engineering background.
Point is, most things are sub-par if you look really closely. All too often, you don't have to look, it finds you.
Use the experience to shore up your skills. Many times, you only learn to do a skilled task when the option is to deal with manufacturers (or sellers), pay someone else, or pick someone’s brain (or all of us) to gain the know-how and tackle these things on your own.
There's no feeling in the world that compares to the enjoyment of out-doing the so called "professionals".
I plan to die young, as late as possible.
