    Go ahead, it's perfectly alright to consider yourself having developed a level of expertise. If you built something that seems to have perfection, for a moment at least you are an expert. When you visualize, study or consult some variety of improvement for that project, the level increases. Maybe not "The" expert, certainly "one of many". When a project is presented to others, and they are inspired to replicate, raises it again.
    There has to be hundreds of HMT.net members with decades of experience. If they really knew everything, would they be here? I've seen it so many times; guys with astounding talents look at a post, wondering and say "Why didn't I think of that?"

    I frequently remind folks who participate in these sorts of forms, that I do not regard this [utilizing design and machine tools to make things] as a mere hobby.
    The members who are employed might do this all day, then come home and do some more. Others; lawyers, chefs, dentists or barbers do it to feed a creative mindset.
    But ALL of us use methods and processes that occur in gigantic shops. The only real difference is in scale, and possibly whether profit is a goal. It takes all kinds of motivation to invest, without prospective gains.
    And of all the hobbies; which possesses the ability, locally or worldwide, to reestablish civilization after some kind of catastrophe?
