Good skills and designs can triumph over a lot of what we conceive as obstacles and needs for expensive tools.
Absolutely. Davide Fuin uses non stainless punties on Murano. They have the advantage of being able to be shucked hot. Assistant serves a bit, shucks off the moil and goes back in with the same hot punty. They wear down faster but Roberto Dona is around the corner to put new heads on whenever he needs them. A lot of factories had in house capabilities for a lot of things. Most people these days don't have the skills or equipment to fix their pipes. Expensive stainless lasts longer.
