    I would imagine the effort put in has a greater bearing on the quality of finish rather than the cost of the product used.

    You sure about that??

    I imagine that hours spent working a rubbish product will give a rubbish result
    Not enough time with a good product will give the same result.

    A balance of both will probably do, so the pound shop one can't be too bad

    If you don't know the guy I would take it with a pinch of salt;maybe he was pulling your leg,maybe he's only had it a few months and the condition's down to the previous owner.Maybe it's true who knows?
