I bought one of the first ones years ago. At first I didn't like it because keeping tension on it with my fingers to control speed made my fingers cramp up. Also the batteries were really hard to remove and they didn't last long at all. There is a learning curve to it. But an electrician friend of mine fixed me up. He added a plug so I don't have to rely on spendy batteries and also added a foot pedal to control speed so I don't have to pinch it with my fingers. I don't use it very often, but it's terrific for making realy thin tight twisties, discs that are consistent and I have the double roller to go with it and it spreads out a gather into a long tube really fast. So it is a handy tool now that it's modified.
