dkkaw I use this device to keep my wires from even thinking about starting to go bad. The best part is how well it snaps together without any glue to tape. It has lasted through countless carrying and use in and out of the home. Thanks! This is a great item you literally just cannot get from anywhere else.
dkkaw I use this quite frequently when chopping vegetables and using sharp knives. They really do protect the fingers, and you can use it to hold the food still.
It would possibly benefit from not being rounded, however. Not sure if the product maker can make a flat version to try out?
dkkaw Purchased two of these and the product works well!! I went to the LEGO store an purchased loose mini-figs to fit for the purpose. the BIGGEST issue is that I painted the 3-d cufflinks and the material does NOT let the paint dry, even after MONTHS!!! I don't know if there is a type of paint to use that will work better. Or perhaps spray on a clear coat, but again, don't know if that will dry.
Otherwise, the product holds the Lego mini figs!
thanks! these were a HUGE hit when I wore them :)
dkkaw I purchased a new one of these a handful of months ago after losing my old ones.
First, it look like it is no longer being made at all. That's sad because the design idea is nice and simple.
However, I was going to say that Shapeways changed the material being used because the new version was much less tighter in grip. It was much more springy (soft?) so didn't hold tight. Also the new shape ways plastic was a very rough look, whereas the old version was very smooth.
Did you pull this from shapeways?
