Within 10 minutes to starting to use this tool, the metal fingers popped out of the handle. I was able to repair with Super Glue and now it is fine. Very handy tool that could prevent sewing machine accidents.

Handy kit to keep close by for embroidering. Love the ease of use and have found that all the pieces work well and are constructed of metal instead of plastic like other products. Overall very pleased with the set.

don't recommend using product because it leaves fine metal splinters and rough edges on blades, recommend using new blade and not wasting money on this item unless you like to hack up fabric

The metal supports are particularly helpful if your thumb needs to be restricted while working. My only complaint is that this products runs large, so even the smallest size (and I am not petite!) creates a gap at the top. Very comfortable, usable item.

as mentioned with the 45 mm blades, better to buy in quantity when available because it is cheaper than buying one at a time. I found that the rotary sharpeners do a very bad job of sharpening blades and ofen leave metallic splinters so it is better to get a new blade when old one is worn.

I love to iron so the tools used are important and this is the best ironing board cover I have used. Since it is of a metallic nature, it irons cloth on both sides, it is smooth to the touch, and looks good. I would highly recommend it for ironing aficionados like myself. It appears that it will wear well and last longer than most others on the market. It may be a bit more of an investment, but from day #1, I could see it was a good purchase. Only comment is that it has to be fitted to the ironing board, and it was a bit short for mine (which I think is a standard size) and required that it be secured at one end, which was not a problem.

I purchased these shears, as well as the spring action pinking shears, for my friend with fibromyalgia. She had called me over to cut out a Santa Clause suit she was making, because her hands couldn't handle the strain of cutting the heavy material. When I started cutting the pattern, I realized that even my hands couldn't handle the strain. She had me use some excellent quality, very expensive, but old fashioned (traditional), heavy metal shears that she lovingly kept in it's original box. There was no way to adjust it enough to make it open quick and easy enough to relieve the strain. The next day I ordered her these shears. She reported back to me that, after an initial learning curve where she pinched her hands a few times, she absolutely loves them. She has thanked me many times for gifting her with these wonderful scissors.

Tool was recommended to me by a friend. Have been using it for tiny, close-up applique work where accuracy is important. This is so much easier that a regular iron, and compact for carrying to classes.

The price was right, delivery fast enough, convenience of delivery to my door meant I didn't have to go to the store = and inevitably spend money on non-essential fabric! Quilters will understand!!

Rotary cutter from Olfa works great. Make sure to wash the oil off wheel prior to cutting your fabric.S

This is a very useful tool - great for creasing tiny fabric surfaces for trimming, removing rhinestones for alterations, and so many other things. The stand is nice - it keeps the hot surface off of the table top, but can be a little unstable at times.

This was my first Overstock purchase. I was looking for a specific size and brand name rotary cutter. I was very pleased to find it here, and even with shipping, I was able to buy 2 for less than I can get them at my local fabric shops. I will definitely look to use Overstock again.
