5.0 out of 5 stars Probably great for manicures, I use them to clean small metal parts., May 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Definitely well made, uniform. I use these for cleaning metal parts, grooves, nooks and crannies. They're firm, but won't scratch. They're just a bit porous, so will hold a little solvent or oil as well. The point here is that they're all good quality, didn't have a defect at all in two batches of my first order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for Knives, Finisher for Heavy Tools and Lawn Mower Blades., May 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Brilliant for knives. Not a good starting point for heavy tools and lawn mower blades. Gave it five stars because it is what it claims to be and is sooooo much better than trying to work with stones. Close to idiot proof if you follow the instructions. IF you sharpen you lawn mower blades after maybe 3 hours of use, perhaps good for that as well, but most of us sharpen mower blades about once a year or the equivalent if you're a pro. That's going to be slow going with this sharpener. You WILL end up with a sharp blade, but probably will go through 3 to 5 coarse belts to get there, and a lot of time as well. Same with an ax, though you MIGHT sharpen an ax often enough to make the Work Sharp effective.

AFTER you've sharpened a lawn mower blade with a file and/or grinder(s) then you might want to finish to a razor's edge with the Work Sharp, though there are some who argue a soft edge on a mower blade is better. (No opinion)

No regrets, this is amazing for knives, scissors, even a machete. The first time you use it on a knife, you will smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine For WS-802, Loop on Top, May 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is only what it is. It's a sleeve, not a case, well made, one small loop on top you could slip a lanyard or key chain through. The WS-802 is durable enough that it probably doesn't need a case. It fits tightly in the sleeve so it's not going to easily fall out and it takes two hands to get it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars No More Blood Blisters, May 9, 2015

Should have bought this a long time ago. Takes about 60 seconds to figure out, two more minutes of practice, then you're a pro with this thing.


Starfire

2.0 out of 5 stars It Just Stops - spoiler alert, May 9, 2015
This review is from: Starfire (Paperback)
Spoiler Alert. This is part SciFi part "espionage." It lost three stars for one reason, it stopped; it just stopped. It's as if the author just decided not to write any more. Of course, this could be part one of a series but even at that, the active characters need some kind of resolution of their current circumstances and sitting on the beach looking up at distant sniper/guards isn't much resolution. No resolution for one of the key characters, this book just stops. There isn't even some tickler, a hint of direction, anything that would want you to pick up the next book in the series (if there is one). As others have observed, the characters aren't compelling, largely stereotypical, no one is particularly unique. Spoiler alert... the simple plot is some type of alien craft broke up into three pieces and crashed on earth in the early 1900's. The Russians have a piece, the Americans have a piece. The Russian piece calls home to a moon of Jupiter. The Americans in an alien ship chase the Russians with an adapted alien drive to Europa, the moon. It doesn't work out well and some of the Americans and one Russian make it back to Earth with nothing but their lives and a lot of questions.

FWIW., I bought Starfire because I read a couple of Larson's "World" books; they were much more interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bore Cleaning Kit More Than A Gun Cleaning Kit, May 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is obviously a compact gun cleaning kit, covers about every size. I like the Otis system, the cables instead of a rod. But what isn't clear is that it isn't really a gun cleaning system, it's a bore cleaning system. You need a brush, something like a small toothbrush for example to get into the slide grooves on a handgun even if you're only field stripping it, but there's nothing like that included. Think about how you're going to use it before you decide what to buy. Most of us have one or two calibers to clean in the field and this is great for that. If you're buying for working on a bench, this probably shouldn't be your first choice.

Happy with it for what it is.

Plug it in, it works. Seems well made. Less expensive than several alternatives. Needed a charger cable, but it's both charger and sync. Great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars 12 X 12 is 11 3/4 X 11 3/4, February 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As another poster, used for snow blower skids so doesn't scratch a ground aggregate decorative drive. 4 skids, 8 surfaces out of the 12 X 12X 1 piece. Works better than the original on an uneven sidewalk. They'll far outlast the snow blower. Understand the side cuts are rough, the piece I got was reasonable well packed but had some minor surface scratches. Also as other posters have noted the actual dimensions are 11 3/4 X 11 3/4, didn't matter in my application.
