The beginning of wisdom is a firm grasp of the obvious...

by Don
(NE Victoria, Australia)

Over the years, I've boiled it down to just a few lines.

They come from production engineering, but they apply widely...

Preventing troublesome designs:

* Minimise the number of different types of components.

* Know the limits of your production capabilities and design in margins for error.

Happy building, and smooth sailing!

Shackles are best done with the pin fitted.
