As far as the sander goes, I guess I will just have to find the time to head out to my folks place. The rest of your statement is ALMOST entirely true. The person that cares though is me. Does it need to be entirely to spec? No! But for me this Is a personal challenge, which results in personal disappointment and personal achievement. I set out for a goal and I want to the best I can to achieve that goal. Came across some hurtles ( dissapointment ) and I am simply looking for some guidance in achieving my goal. I'm not looking to please other people. I hope you don't take this response as defensive or rude as I did not take any form of insult from yours. I am simply letting you know where I come from!
