    A bad man quarrels with his tools.

    That was the maxim that was expressed in an old woodworking book (Home furniture making, for amateur wood workers, manual training schools and students .. 1910) that I just download from http://www.archive.org.

    I will have to remember that, next time my tools decide to act up.

    I suppose in any given situation, one has to determine which has the higher IQ: the person or the tool.

    sometimes it's the tool...
