    My explanations are one of my vices I'll admit. A lot it it comes from my having spent countless years taking people with little to no mechanical aptitude qualities then eventually over time seeing many of those very same people become highly skilled individuals. Some have gone on to complete their engineering degrees and I know of a couple who have been accepted into KES (Kuwait Society of Engineers). Something that is not easily done for guys from the remote regions of India.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Paul Jones and others agree, we're here for the whole mechanical pie, not just a slice. How many times have you looked up, hours after diving in one rabbit hole or another, satisfied good info has been absorbed? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Since an industry exists where guys sit around all day and write technical manuals, I'd like to raise a point.
    I'd say the most concise yet least 'wordy' are those involved with mechanical work; sometimes. The imported versions [not Japan] are usually miserable. I imagine they are written in mother tongue and translated by PC. It's certain 'their' PC's not a whit more technically literate in target language than Marv's, Frank's, and 40-60% of the other HMT.net crowd. When I have to add standard terms that should be there [like what designed and manufactured chassis, electronics and software in the first place] it is clear. The delineation is funny. One comes to mind is Harley Davidson; and say building up a crankshaft. It's rather precise, yet easy to understand. Mercury outboard engine manuals are good too. Not quite same for similar products, where text is awash in theory, descriptions of technique etc. As if one is written for an experienced hand, and other is more like educational material.

    So when Frank S or any of the other great posters write, I believe they combine BOTH facets, aware thousand of levels exist in the potential readers. I like those who pound related facts/ opinions into descriptions, especially on stuff I don't know. My vocabulary receives all manner of benefit, when I look up _ _ _ _ _ ; that's WTF! moments before.
    I don't mind the ^^^^^^^^^^^^ all over, telling me "Come on bud, study this!"
