Does any have The hand spun Bowl leaf Trimmer? And if so is it worth the $100-120 bucks?

I'm looking at getting one I figure it won't get super close and il have to manicure a bit. But it seems like it would take the majority off.

Also you use it with dried buds right?

Damn figured one person has used it?

I watched some videos and it seems there's a lot of mixed reviews.
Some peoples screen were coated in resin in one use. But then again their buds didn't look completely Dry to begin with. And I can see that knocking off a lot of heads of wet weed.

As for the people who used it on dry bud it was a decent job in a 10 second spin.

I've been wondering about these things myself. I've only had one grow, and it was only an ounce and a half; to be honest, I enjoyed the trimming. But I can see it getting to be a drag in the future if you have decent yields. Except for cleaning the scissors...I liked that a lot.

I ordered one and will do a Review of it.

I do not plan of doing my Main Colas and main buds on Side Branches. Those will be Hand trimmed and Hung to dry.

All the inner lower buds will go through the Bowl Trimmer and on a Drying Rack.

Guess il have to review the hang drying and rack drying as well.

I very much enjoy trimming and the scissor hash but il be trimming 2-3 lbs in the next 2-3 weeks and dont have the time to do it by Hand

Excellent! You know how it is; youtube videos from people you've never heard of just don't cut it when you can get a review from someone here.

I have one. It literally saves hours of work.
You must trim fresh "wet" buds...not dry.
Expect to lose some trichs.
I have the blades set to the closest setting possible (i think it makes for better looking buds)
Avoid small and airy buds....they will get chopped to nothing.
No sticks or twigs.
10 spins in each direction (I feel a slightly faster speed is better than slow)
Clean the trimmer after your done. I use everclear and a small brush...I obviously capture all that material for later use. Nothing goes to waste. The leftover trimmings are very nice for other projects too.

Thanks man.

Yea I expect to lose some and like you said when I clean it that Solvent will be extracted. I won't do my Main colas but everything else will go. If it's not at least a Gram dry I just toss it in my Hash pile.

Thanks again man I should have it in a few days.
