…and such berating me for daring to work on fine air rifles with crap tools. My tools are of good quality and I'm careful when plying my trade/hobby with them and get good results. I think they're getting upset because of that very thing. I can do as much or more with less. Necessity is indeed the mother of all invention.

Your statement reminded me of Burt Monroe who set a land speed record in the 1960's, which still stands today. " Because Munro was a man of modest means, he would often make parts and tools himself instead of having them professionally built. For example, he would cast parts in old tins, make his own barrels, pistons, flywheels, etc. His micrometer was an old spoke."
