it’s just a shovel

Sometimes, when you talk to people about really mundane things, like refurbishing a shovel or why some tool has merit over another tool, you can see their eyes glaze over and you can feel any interest or enthusiasm leave their bodies while you’re talking to them.

That’s kind of fun in a really perverse way.

Kind of like a really mild form of waterboarding…tortuous.

And then sometimes, you find someone who shares your enthusiasm for tools and quality construction.

This guy is good…lots of practical videos on YouTube.

His thoughts about tools and keeping things running right…refurbishing good tools instead of replacing them with something substandard…are true and good.

“…keeping things squared away…”

I could learn a thing or two from this guy.
