Nah- a human being can be a BETTER tool than a grinder or a hammer.

You are just afraid of losing control. And its true- you have to work harder, think more, be more on your toes, to control a human than to control a hammer. But the work you can get done with a smart tool, both in quantity and quality, is much more than you can with a dumb tool.
I have found that human collaborators are more than "happy"- they actually ADD to my task. And they do it while I am not even in the shop- never seen a hammer do that.
