In the help center, there's a fact about accepting an answer.
Accepting an answer is not meant to be a definitive and final statement indicating that the question has now been answered perfectly. It simply means that the author received an answer that worked for him or her personally, but not every user comes back to accept an answer, and of those who do, they may not change the accepted answer if a newer, better answer comes along later.
In the context of woodworking, I'm wondering when I should accept an answer.
For example, I asked about how to improve dust collection of my sliding miter saw here. One of the answers gave me an idea. I want to test it out, but it will take time before I try it. After-all, I have to plan, buy stuff, build it and test it; it's not just a copy+paste and re-build. :D
Should I accept the answer after I tried it and it worked for me or just accept an answer because I got an idea out of it?
