Awfully easy or difficult..

David Weaver
Depending on who is talking, I guess it's awfully easy to declare something will work or not work.

I find it very difficult to talk about things I don't have much experience with, and even then, to make definite statements.

I've got certain preferences from making a bunch of planes, and a few things in mind to try when encountering various cap iron shapes (and heights - I don't like a cap iron to have the boundless spring that a lot of the emmerich, etc, type caps have). But if someone does something different and it works, it's awfully hard to tell them that it doesn't. Or maybe for some people, even after hearing that something else works, maybe it's really easy to tell others that it doesn't.
