    It’s too easy over the years to forget some basics. Good review!

    Have you ever tried using a mechanical pencil with a small tip, 0.5mm, for marking? I have pretty good luck with that. A lot of good basic information that most people didn’t know about or forgot over the years. Thanks!

    I’m not necessarily a newbie anymore, but I will never completely be the opposite of that, whatever it is. I tend to learn something new everytime I watch a tips video and continue to enjoy watching them. What you shared today was rudimentary … and … simply because you see the world just a little different than I do, you pointed out something that I hadn’t really thought through before. It was well worth my time to veiew it. Thanks for that and consider me a new sub. Cheers!!

    It seems that in any walk of life there are what seem like very obvious “no-brainer” basic things that make the difference between an excellent outcome and a disappointing one – these things definitely bear revisiting and our attention. THANK YOU for making this video.
