Good instructor however Review by Evelyn
Rating

When I pay for a video class I expect to have information particularly about the product. In this class she fails to mention where you can get the brazing rods, how long you cut them, where you can get the paste and if that is a different process and a few other specific details I would expect from a class like this. I agree that she seemed to repeat herself but I can handle that, however a lot of the information she offered was more detailed about things other than what we were learning about. I would have preferred she at least mentioned adding a back onto the bezel... little things that were directly related to the process of brazing.

Good video Review by Alice
Rating

This was a well-produced video, with good camera angles for the torch work. I appreciated Kim's description of even simple techniques, which gave me her particular view of basics. She used good metaphors for hand movements, which I like because a commonly used movement in my life helps me learn a way to apply it to another area. Also, I appreciate that she repeats her instructions, as I have learned by experience, it's best to hear the same thing more than once when first learning a new technique.

good job Review by Pamela

I thought the video was well produced...Kim was knowledgeable and a good instructor. I am anxious to try this new technique. My only comment on Kim is that she is a tad wordy...repeats herself which I find mildly irritating, so I gave it a 4 star. Overall it was worth it and I would recommend it.
