  • "I'm curious who this is geared towards. How is this better or less packaging then a cardboard or paper box that most nails come in anyways? I'm all for innovation in the construction and DIY world, but this seems like it is solving an issue that does not exist. What person is going to undo their belt to put on a roll of nails. Just get a waste pouch or a toolbelt and it can hold all of the tools and nails you could ever need and it will last you a lifetime and could be passed down for several generations. Also if you are concerned about packaging, go to a contract supplier instead of a big box store and buy nails or screw by weight and use reusable containers. Sorry for the rant, I just can't support wasteful design that supports trends that don't exist. "

  • "I'm a Furniture maker. It's Ebonizing, very simple. Take some white vinegar, and some steel wool and non galvanized nails. Let it sit in a jar for a few weeks, brush onto woods with higher Sugar levels, Oak works the best, especially quarter-sawn white Oak. Really old technique, really simple to do."

  • "Makita has been making the same tool for quite some time for around 500 dollars. Honestly a lot of people use this tool to create "antique" furniture. If you build something, don't cheapen it with applied character. Don't be restoration hardware."
