While I agree completely with what you've said, I'd point out that you
frequently seem to take the position that one should always repair a machine and
never use one for parts. It's an easy thing to say, but, in light of your
comment, I'm sure you realize how hard it is to determine where to draw the line
between machines for parts and machines to fix.

I made the remark earlier that he's actually performing a useful service in that
he's making parts available that many would simply have tossed out.
