Something I consider now that I've gotten 'bit' a few times:
When buying a piece of equipment, see how close to home you can get it worked on.
And, how easy or convient it is to get parts, consumables, and accessories for it.
Gone are the days of wooden ships, and Iron men.
I doubt we shall ever see their likes again.
