Interesting you’d mention using sheet metal shears. My grandfather could eyeball most transitions, whether round or rectangular, and he didn’t waste a lot of material.

I can visualize what an unfolded shape would fold into, and what a folded shape would look like unfolded. In fact I scored quite high on the ASVAB in that section, as well as the AFOQT’s similar section.

But cut those shapes from sheet metal by hand, free-form? That’s a matter of training, practice and a lot more practice.

Now even if you transported my grandfather into 2023 while he was alive, I’m also sure he couldn’t build a simple 3D shape on a computer to save his life. It’s a matter of different training, different experience, and a number of other things. And I don’t know what he’d think about the flexible ductwork that goes into new houses nowadays. Because sheet metal ducts don’t sag on hangers, among other things.

Our society has very seriously screwed up by our emphasis on “get a degree or you’ll wind up digging ditches or doing fast food work.” That’s totally wrong, and has led to a really significant shortage in tradesmen.

Want custom cabinets? Good luck. You’ll get by with factory-made, prefab boxes that are designed for someone to hang on a wall, then hook a fancy looking door onto. You can buy them at Home Depot or Lowe’s.

Custom cabinet work is now almost all “artisanal”, which means way over priced, and done by someone who will look down his nose at you for wanting what YOU (the customer) want instead of buying into his fancy - and expensive - “vision.” And frankly, I doubt the product would be as flexible or durable as prefab boxes put together by a decent interior carpenter. Because the difference here is the “artisan” is all about himself, while the carpenter is all about the job. Which is how trades are supposed to be.

Man like everyone is sooooo smart and contrarian around here.

For example, working as a janitor, you need to know which direction to twist the mop when it's on the floor to bring the most dirt towards you, and then you need the sheer intelligence to operate the spray cleaner, while the incredible dexterity to wipe with paper towels. These guys work hard jobs, they're definitely smarter than most of the population, which is why they know sleepy joe and the bitch are not good for America, and covid AND global warming are librul hoaxes.

Okay, so we're down to George Soros ("Jewish bankers") releases artificial viruses (62 strains so far) to eventually eradicate the uneducated redneck janitors with the REAL humdinger, in order to reduce human load on the planet.

Now, about that "cherry-picking"…
