    I have a good friend who's a talented engine builder / machinist.

    He always helps me for free, but his "rule" is that if we are working on a project and I don't have the right tools, I have to agree to go out and buy them before we go any further on the project. :grin: It has worked out well.....I got a lot of free help, and now I have a pretty competent rolling cart full of tools!!!!

    There is something REALLY enjoyable about starting a new project and knowing that you already have all the tools you'll need.
