While reading a hobby related magazine I saw the following note that I think speaks volumes …..
When deciding whether or not to buy a new piece of kit for the workshop ask yourself three questions :-
Do I need this tool ?
Do I want this tool ?
Can I justify this tool ?
If the answer to any of the above is ‘possibly’ then buy it.
If the answer to any of the above is ‘no’ then ignore it as it is probably a statistical anomaly.
If you feel you cannot afford to buy it then tell yourself you are in danger of becoming a cheapskate and buy it anyway.
Enough said ?
