That is absolutely true. Things we take as obvious were really not as obvious as we think they are. Mass production is a relatively new phenomenon, and there are really only about two or three examples of it in ancient history. The concept of interchangeable parts is not an easy (or kind) one to grasp if you happen to be the artisan who has to hand-make each individual piece.
