I have a fondness for flowcharts (and engineer-types).

I love it.  WD-40 and duct tape belong in every 5 gallon plastic pail.

Glad you liked it, John! You know, I heard somewhere--maybe here on permies--that WD-40 is primarily castor oil. Wish I could remember more about that.

More rules of Chaos Carpentry:
-When all else fails, get a bigger hammer.
-If it jams, force it.  If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.
-In any home workshop environment, immediately cover all horizontal surfaces with junk.
-Leave projects unfinished everywhere.  That way no matter where you are there is something to do.
-As long as you have a pair of pliers handy, there is nothing wrong with going barefoot.

Warranty?  Heck, I can fix it for less than shipping back to the factory!

WD40 even liquified the gum stomped into the carpet, enabling it's removal.  Then soap and water took care of the WD40
