    PM tested some things "As seen on TV". Here is a quick break down of the results:

    SHAMWOW:
    PM says its Worth it, but keep some paper towels handy, and dont expect to say "Wow" every time.

    Pro Caulk:
    [​IMG]
    PM said it works as claimed and fills a void in the tool box.

    MXZ Saw:
    [​IMG]

    PM said it WONT cut your fingers, but it wont cut anything else either. PM recomends not to buy it.

    Awesome Auger:
    [​IMG]

    Pm says the only thing this is good for is to make a pilot hole for a shovel. Do not buy.

    Mighty Putty:
    [​IMG]

    PM said the only thing it did was make a coffee mug handle. Working the putty until all the "Green" disapeared took as long as 20 min. Despite the 2 min. claim. Do not buy.

    GRABIT:
    [​IMG]

    Worked 1 out of 4 times. PM says 1 out of 4 is better than nothing.

    Hercules Hook:
    [​IMG]

    Worked as claimed. PM advises to use fasteners attached into wall studs for really heavey things, but if you have no tools and NEED to hang something, The Hercules Hooks work.

    +1.

    I have also used putty epoxy but not the stuff on TV, an industrial 2 part. Works great for some things but not for others. I actually used it to plug a small leak on a PVC water pipe and smoothed it out enough where I could glass over it. Still holding.

    i have the shamwow pm is true sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't it's even worse when your wife doesn't read the instructions that say do not dry and do not wash in fabric softner and happens to do both. then the are really worthless. i got the one over the summer that billy mays sells and they were absolute junk i washed my wifes expedition and "dried" it with one of these things and i ended up washing it again to get all of the orange lint off of the truck.

    It isn't quite as powerful as a real dremel but it works well with good batteries. The ones they sent with it suck. It takes me maybe 5 or 6 minutes to do both front paws. But we got the upgraded one (I forgot to mention).

    Hey, Matt. Could I barrow your peddipaws sometime? I have been wanting to try it on Molly. Im scared to use regular clippers on her little toe nails.

    I don't think that'll be a problem...as long as it comes back as a Pedipaws and not some sort of a cannon or launcher. :p
