You and your father-in-law illustrated my hypothesis that there are two things
that all engineers and other tinkerers must believe and they are both wrong:
1. My design will work successfully the first time it is built or put on paper.
2. My design will work forever, i.e., it will be 100% reliable.
Why is this? Because if they did not believe these things they could never even
start to design anything.
No one can design something intending it not to work or work only some of the
I send my best regards to you and your father-in-law for a very nice concept
and design and a beautiful build.
