I can identify with that statement and figure it fits a lot of us. I really enjoy using a newly designed tool to produce an improved product; at least for the first few times. I've done it every chance I've had since the Sixties. Right now I'm on a piston/rod handling fixtures kick. Different kinds of rod heaters, different ways to float small end/big end to get more repeatable 1/10 gram readings. Lots of fun.

It's about the only circumstance in which I lose track of time and forget to eat. And then when someone comes along and makes me aware of the time or that a meal has been missed by hours then sometimes I realize at that moment that I am not hungry.

And otherwise I' m almost always hungry..
