seems like some did not understand completely.

The nuts and bolds are not prone to failure due to being poorly made, Built to tight tolerences and designed to fail.  When they do fail, you have to use use a proprietary tool, that is built to fail, and is priced artificially high.
I have been stuck using one of these tools.

At the wrong time the failure of some of these tools can cause a delay costing Millions of dollars. all to make a few thousand extra profit.

Been privileged to use one of those "$3,000 screwdrivers", huh?

proprietary tool

Surprise, surprise. Government intervention that causes a problem that can only be solved with... yet more government intervention.

Prove this statement.  Prove that government intervention is why proprietary tools exist.


Before you launch off onto an anti-patent speech, I'll remind you that patents have nothing to do with it because proprietary tools exist whether there are patents or not.  The simple fact of the matter is that when manufacturers make obscure parts of products require a special tool, there just isn't enough of a demand for the tool to warrant a separate company investing the money, time, and effort to sell a half-handful of the special tool.  How often does Joe Public need the proprietary tool to remove the fan clutch on his M3?  Hell, even the dealers don't use it that often.  So why is Craftsman going to invest the large amount of dollars necessary and dedicate the floor space for machining a tool that they're going to sell five of a year, if they're lucky?

That's just the free market at work for ya.  Government has nothing to do with it.

Enjoying the dose of reality or getting a laugh out of my posts? Feel free to toss me a penny or two, everyone else seems to be doing it! 1Kn8NqvbCC83zpvBsKMtu4sjso5PjrQEu1

Half the time I went to use it, it was broken, and no one wants to admit they were the one who broke it.  Sometimes an alternative is used in place, sometimes they end up stripping something.

Set up the same thing..

you left out the part where they use Nuts Bolts and Wrenches that will break once a year and can only be bought from MR. NY's buddy in Boston.

And for some idiotic reason you keep buying them.

If you stop buying crap, they'll stop making crap.

I didn't buy it, The government did, or some big corporation.

That just invalidated your theory that the making of crap is easily stopped by people not buying crap.

No it didn't. Stop buying crap and people will stop making it. The fact you're too lazy or unintelligent to stop buying it doesn't invalidate that theory at all. Get a new job. Start a business. Start walking. Telecommute. There are a myriad of options but even if there weren't, nobody owes you anything. Curl up and die if that's your only option. You won't be missed.

A-men.
