Making something instead of buying is waste of time? Answered
While searching the Internet for someone that has made their own Hot Press for making WPC (wood plastic composite) boards, I stumbled upon a Tshirt forum. A man had posted a topic about how to make his own Tshirt heat press for making Tshirt designs. The other forum members all decided it was a waste of time. He should not bother trying because it's complicated. In the end he would spend way more, and he could buy a used or cheap heat press locally.
Is that not the ultimate irony? People who post in a forum about making Tshirts tell another member that do-it-yourself is a bad idea. Like buying a heat press to make your own Tshirts is a much better idea. Do they all think they will be the one with that great design to put on a Tshirt and corner the elusive $100Billion Tshirt market? Or do they just like to make their own Tshirts instead of buying one pre made.
