There's a difference?Are these guys all skilled craftsmen or are some just told "Take this hammer and hit this piece of metal until it's all dented"?
I didn't really see any of the often referred to 'hammer it, then listen, then pick a correct spot to carry on from' type thing.
Machines are certainly more consistent. And if a CNC program is made that produces outstanding results, it can be
repeated time after time without error or deviation.
