Another engineer viewpoint, like Old Coot said in post #3.

Oops I'm not sure if that worked or if I did a boo boo. Old Guys

Okay then. By the time I had posted this the previous post was working and Old Coot had already replied. Maybe I'm not so dumb after all. Old Guys

If it is not broke, you can't fix it and working means it operates well enough to figure out what is wrong with it.

There is a ton of truth to that.
I was always dismantling things to figure out how they worked, and building stuff all around the farm. Dad says I started at about 5 years-old, when I mostly dismantled things.
As time went on, it went from rebuilding car and farm equipment engines, to restoring complete classic cars, to designing and building farm machinery and car trailers, to learning carpentry, electrical and plumbing, and so on and so on.
Funny thing is, when I went to university, I chose Civil Engineering rather than mechanical or electrical, as mostly I wanted to build bigger things.
Lots of people make fun of engineers, but I think they wouldn't mind being one.

I once asked, "Who decided Roundabouts were a good idea?"...OMG! It's like closing your eyes and hoping you survive. The answer was, "An Engineer". 'Nough said.
