I concur with the OP on the joy of wrenching. True it sucks to have to continually fix a POS (i.e nearly any HD bike) but wrenching or just trivial shop tinkering does provide relaxation to me. I seem to spend more time in my shop when stressed or bored. Everyone has an "outlet", mine too is wrenching.
