"... If you can work with your hands, you're never going to lose your mind."

Nice motto!

I like that too -- almost picked it as the title for this post!

Get a load of the über-decimal-tabulator on the big Royal in the opening scene.

Thanks for sharing this, Richard. Really loved seeing the tools Ed uses.

Have to agree: "if you can work with your hands, you're never going to lose your mind" is a fantastic quote. Going to keep that close to my heart this year; it's a sentiment I've held for a while.

I love his motto of working with your hands and not loosing your mind. That is a quote I'm going to type.

Good to know there are still typewriter repairmen out there. He sure does not look his age either.
