I learned like you its the right way! Quality and pride in a job well done way! As mentioned its a time saver now ,times money! Its funny how a few cents effects 0verall quality any more! 2000 hrs In a year, 2 min. per hr., per man,8hrs a day is $ !!!!!

How can you give it a good inspection for wear as stated earlier
