- Ok Review by wickedcarrot
This is my third video of Helen Driggs so it's obvious I like her work. In this case I felt she was generally helpful. No depth, but she skimmed through a lot. Personally, I felt it could use more 'troubleshooting' tips. Still recommend it.

- Great overview Review by Mad Hatter
I liked the way Helen explained alternative tools in each category and compared each to hand finishing tools. Her focus on safety while using these tools was excellent and it was obvious that she was totally familiar with what could go wrong and how to prevent that. Her ease of manner was refreshing and comfortable to watch. I felt as if I were in a class in person.

- Good presentation, but lacking demonstration Review by Jules
I love watching Helen Driggs' videos, but this one is seriously lacking in material. It seems like this video is assuming one is experienced in hand finishing and is focused on giving the machine finishing alternative to each step.
This video gives a good explanation of the tools and attachments used in tumbling, rotary tool and the buffer machine. However, it doesn't give much in the way of instruction on how to actually use those tools and attachments, which is also important. I'd like to know what shapes/sizes of polishing wheels to use on different shapes of jewelry, and see it in action. She went into detail on only a few tools. I think there are better resources out there.
