More on dumbing down

January 14, 2009

I told a minor lie yesterday – I find I have a set of L7890 pliers as well.

Nothing from Lindstrom.

However, this arguement against dumbing down is not the first. I went around purchasing all the then Ciba-Geigy Araldite (Blue and Yellow) I could find, once I was alerted to a change then (Blue and White). These days I have to use Blue and White, but with a filler.

However, one reason to buy a sub-standard unit, as I put to mother this evening, (& she understood) is to use on parts that put a strain on the joint, and of course, reserving the vital jobs for the box jointed pliers that really need the quality would be the priority.
