When my buddy and I work together it takes exactly two beers each to perform the task. Pretty much a win/win. I DO think the valves sound like a great idea, but it's nice sometimes not to be working alone.
My old buddy that used to stop at the shop every day has died, so I no longer have anybody at the ready to help. Someone was supposed to come by thursday eve, but failed to show up.
