|Cat with plane|
My ideas were distilled into this
- choose less power over more power
- choose simple over complex
Even after the generator arrived to run some power tools these criteria continue to shape my decisions.
I am not a power phobe and I am quite content to use it when appropriate. The power in my shop is provided by a small generator (3500 watts) and is not unlimited, which keeps me thinking about how best to use what I have.
