To each their own speciality...

I can't cut with any saw as accurately as Bill can, due to not having the practice at it. I can carve a gunstock or any other tool handle by eye with an angle grinder, belt sander, and a rasp. Again, just practice.

I'm usually a bit amazed that others don't realize that their favorite tool is not everyone's favorite tool and that it really just comes down to the comfort that comes from frequent use.

So don't disparage those guys who fuss over their planes, they can probably do lots of things better than you can. If they had spent years driving a skil saw, I bet they would agree with you.
