Both Mike and I went to a special kind of senior high school that we’ve got here in Austria (called HTL). You start at around age 15 and it lasts for five years (for most people, at least). We used to have a whole day of workshop class, and we started out with filing a block of metal… I guess we must have spent almost a month filing that stupid block, trying to make certain patterns and to get it perfectly even etc. etc., just to start over again, 1mm smaller. My whole body was hurting at night from that stupid exercise!
Well, but this experience also had it’s upside: I can now totally relate to Daniel-San when he has to do the wax-on, wax-off exercise!
