I went round to a mates place and he was working on a water pump for a car. He wasn't actually working on the pump he was fabricating a new one out of brass and bronze pieces he cut out with a hacksaw. I asked him what he was doing and he told me, I thought for a while and said its only $10.00 for a new one, he looked at me in amazement and then said what the heck am I doing. I gave him a lift to get a new one total cost $10.00 The price to make the pump was going to cost heaps of time and a lot more than $10.00 for the gas and silver solder. Sometimes we make work for ourselves but that's what I do, just sometimes. Writing this blog is one of those sometimes but I do.
