... if you cut yourself with an X-Acto blade, used CA to close the cut, and used kicker to speed it up so you could get back to building.

Add your ideas...,

Sorry, if it was a real man cave, your TV and furniture would have several years of accumulation of balsa dust. No one sanding session could possibly put that much residue on your eyebrows!

... if you intercept the credit card statement so that it gets 'lost' so certain people won't see it. 

... if 'Model Supplies' is a line item in the household budget.

If you had a mullet back in 1982 and I have no idea why I am posting this. I was looking for the pic of an x-acto knife stuck in my foot when I ran across this.

.....if you can tell w/o measuring what the thicness of the would you are using is.
......if you have boxes and boxes of used wheels, control horns, spinners, nut & bolts, etc.

You're a builder if the refrigerator has more bottles of CA than groceries.

your wife got new furniture in the den six months ago and you never noticed.

your wife was standing in the door to the man cave with nothing on but a smile, and you said, "I'll be there in
a minute. "

your wife got a divorce and you never missed her.

If you have direct deposit setup at your local hobby shop.

If, when your wife catches you coming in late with another purchase, she just sighs and says "At least your not bringing something home pregnant".

If you have a full set of cap screws, round head philips screws, machine screws, flat washers, lock washers, star washers, nuts, locknuts in various lengths in sizes 0-80 to 1/4-20.

If you go to Harbor Freight and can't find anything you don't already have.

If a three car garage or detatched 20 x 30 building are on your must have list for your next house.

If the only thing holding you back from buying a laser cutter is not having any space left in your workshop.

If you think your current CNC cutter is really only about half the size of what you really want.

if you have to try and scrape the hardened CA off your fingers in the shower at 6am so you can go back to work to make some more money for more covering, dope, servos, balsa, glue and engines. All the while thinking it's gonna be worth it when that masterpiece rises off the runway this spring. :-)

Peace,

if all you think about is
" How can I modify my next kit"
"Should I go with one servo or two for the ailerons"
" tricycle or tail dragger"
" four stroke or two"
" What color mono cote should I buy" { even though I have enough for 10 Planes"}

Is it not a real mancave if you vacuum up the dust?

Only the first and last should be something to think about. If you do not kn ow how many servo's, and have no preference for landing gear configeration and number of engine strokes, then you are a beginer.
