    Ed on small things like this, Dominos are easily as strong as traditional M&T. For a larger version, I'd go that route for sure. For these smaller ones, I didn't feel the need. Material prep for...

    I would have bought it, too...and if you really don't feel a need to keep it, you can resell that at market rate for a whole bunch more than you paid for it! Nope, you're not sick!
