ToolMagic works well as advertised. It creates a thin layer of a rubber material on your tools so they won't damage whatever you are working with. This is great if you are working with soft and delicate materials such as fine jewelry, soft gem stones and/or jump rings.

A few things I found when working with it:
- It works best with a single coating that has been left to dry overnight. If used before the coat is completely dried and cured it will not last as long.
- Some people say a double coat works better, but I found the coat then gets too thick and gets in the way of properly gripping fine materials.
- If taking normal care a single coat should last for several hours of work. I personally keep two sets of tools coated so I can switch if one loses its coating.
- This is not suitable for working with hard materials such as stainless steel. Too much force is needed to work with such materials and the ToolMagic coating will quickly give away under the pressure.
- Shake well before use and make sure to keep the jar closed properly when not dipping your tools, it dries out quickly. If necessary it can be thinned by adding just a bit of the solvent Xylene (available at any decent hardware store).

The controversial stuff:
- There are similar products such as Plasti Dip and Liquid Electrical Tape. These have a slightly different composition but may work just as well. Some say even better. Especially Plasti Dip seems to last longer.
- Compared to Plasti Dip and Liquid Electrical Tape, ToolMagic is rather expensive for such a small jar.

Nevertheless, it delivers as promised.
Hope this helps.

Be sure to dip, dry, dip again, dry again. The product goes on pretty thick, but drys thin, hugging the tool. Does a great job of not marring my jewelry and wire wrapping!

I had high hopes for this product, but unfortunately they didn't pan out. The stuff gets frayed & peels off within an hour of starting to work. I'd have to have numerous duplicate sets of tools, to use one for a few minutes then trade it for an unfrayed one.
I tried one coat, dried overnight, and then one coat dried for nearly a week; no difference.
tried 2 coats, but that was overly thick, awkward to work with.
Thought maybe my tools were grubby, so I tried pre-cleaning the tools with soap & water (very well rinsed, dried overnight in warm, dry place). Tried pre-cleaning with alcohol, and with some ether pads I have for other reasons, & with acetone.
I dunno...maybe I got a defective jar?
(Ironically, the only time it seems to stay really tenaciously is when it's gotten so torn up I can't work with it, and I have to peel the remainder off. THAT sticks on just fine.)

Product is as described and comes recommended by professional chain maille people. I believe once I have the hang of coating I will love it. So far no scratches on my AA.

Fast shopping. Great product. protects all my jewelry making tools. I find it best if you dip your tools twice.

Read instructions, dipped and let sit upright to air dry overnight. Marred my project by tearing during 1st use with 20 gauge Bead Smith craft wire, ruined my cabachon wrap when my design was nearly complete.
I'm very disappointed, as the reviews here indicate it works well with light use. I even tried the double coat method some reviews mention and that seemed even worse, again an overnight dry and they stick together like it didn't dry 100%.
I don't know what to say, besides this stuff was an utter and complete waste of time and money and I would not recommend it even for the lightest of use- it simply does not work.

The product itself is good, works like a charm. Yet, when I received it, it had leaked and spilled inside its plastic packaging. (Point of clarification, Amazon packaging was spot on, I'm referencing the product packaging) Not a lot was lost and it was still usable so I didn't bother returning it. But it seems the lid of the jar is a little loose, it won't screw on well.
