One could have the best of the best but it truly comes down to the person using them. There are certainly many builders who don't have access to such tools but still turn out just stunning results. Just takes longer from my experience. Thanks too! One of the very best builders I have ever known, Dave Abell, built cross-legged, on his living room floor. He drilled holes with an Xacto knife, and painted virtually everything with those cheap water based craft paints, from Walmart. He built a Caterpillar that nearly won Salt Lake, in 1990. The hard-facing he did on the blade, and the ripper was astonishing! I just saw it in an old issue of SAE, a couple of weeks ago (GSL coverage). Sadly, I believe he's gone, now.
