Tuesday was a momentous day at Brese Plane. I managed to almost completely negate what I had accomplished from Monday up until noon on Tuesday. In one bonehead moment I completely destroyed my chances of making this tool, and in the next moment I was back on top.
any of you who have read David Pye, just because machines are involved

mind, and not in the hand. Coming from a hands-on background, I would
much rather rely on my eyes and hands to create, than on the mind to
control a machine in a numerically controlled manner. I flunked Algebra
in high school and college.
