how come they can't make automails?
I have seen the anime and i am reading the manga now ... and i am thinking... WHY does Ed have to go to winry every time he needs his automail fixed?(apart fron wanting to see winry of course ... )
So... any suggestions?
Becouse she IS the best when it comes to automails. And she is the one who made his so it's obvious that she won't have any problems dialing with the mechanism she had created.
yes that's true... but he is an alchemist.
I mean he can recreate a whole building.. he recreated a portion of central after it was destroyed by his fight with scar, he can even make gothic tasted weapons out of blood.. but he is unable to fix his own tiny automail.
Have any of you ever seen Terminator 2?
That's the answer. "He can't create complex machinery..."
yeah, he can't create complex machinery because maybe he doesnt know how it actually works and how can he do something so complex with so many small parts without knowing exactly what is where and how it works
maybe he can, maybe he cant. or maybe he just wants to go visit the one place that he can still call home and the people waiting for him. besides winry IS one of the best when it comes to automail.
The automail has to synch with his body/biological parts. If you have learned anything about alchemy in the series (with the exception of the "Father"), it is that Ed and Al can't remotely positively affect anything biological through alchemy.
its not about that imo.

so assembling it must be like ..you must know the human anatomy very good, and you must be a rocket scientist from the moment you were born.
..so ed is a genius in alchemy, but i don't think he can built a scratch-new automail with that asskicking skillz of alchemy of him.
and winry is her best friend, if you squick that hard its like manga's canon love, of course he can/could go to another random automail repairer, but ...winry made the leg and the arm, so she knows her "epic machine" best. ..and she is making discounts too.
Winry is indeed the best automail mechanist! And to transmute something, first you have to understand that thing, then decompose and then reconstruct it. I doubt Ed understands how automails work...Even if he could transmute it, he probably could not connect it to his body. But he can't!
And one more thing: if his automail is destroyed then it mean that he has only arm to work with left. And he can't build a circle with only one arm. So he can't use alchemy.
Or am i wrong somewhere?
