We often see so many worries about small stuff like stands. glass, lights, etc. Maybe some of us who have been around longer and seen how much less attention/ worry was given to some of these points, should build a file of how bad things were but still worked well? Stands might be a place to start an interesting discussion of how crude they can be and still serve the purpose. At some point we may have spoiled our children to the point that they feel all these small things need to be perfect to work.
We could likely build a whole book on the way we used to clean tanks, as well?
