DIY

Filed under: by Brendon Upson on 2005-10-25

For those of you that know me, you know I like to indulge in a little DIY. You also know I like tools (Mmmmm powertools). On the weekend I started building a wine rack for our newish kitchen (I started the renovation in January and it's nearly done). The big challenge I find when hitting the hardware store is: Will a 3 dollar tool perform an adequate enough job when compared to a 20 dollar tool?

In short, a 3 dollar set of hole saws is worth somewhere less than 3 dollars. After drilling the 9th hole the metal sheared and my drilling day was done. Last night I hit the store again and (this time) bought a 20 dollar hole saw. Much thicker metal :-)

Is this the same with software?
