A silk screen printers tools of trade

These are the bare tools of trade of a master silk screen printer having over 35 years of experience behind him. How much ever I try bringing in sophisticated tools and implements, he steadfastly refuses to part with these. He has done some exceptional work with us in the past and has lots more to offer in the coming future. What I am implying here is that great work does not need jazzy paraphernalia, it only needs passion and skill. 

I have noticed that a lot of skilled people who are masters of their trade are very particular and possessive with their tools and any kind of change disrupts their creative cycle.

Let me be honest, I am one of those who buys all sorts of sophisticated tools but rarely uses them. So this is an eye-opener for me.
