Not recommended Review by A

Apart from the lack of modeling safety, this is not a very effective teaching video. The teacher may be a talented artist, but she doesn't bother with the basics of cold connections and uses metals that may not be suitable for beginners. If you want a true range of techniques, go with Helen Driggs's video about cold connections.

Where's your safety glasses? Review by Loretta Luli

Its a shame that such a talented artist and instructor doesn't demonstrate proper safety habits. A message cautioning viewers to use protective eyewear had to be displayed each time she drilled, because she didn't wear any. Also, "galvanized" does NOT mean annealed. The black wire she was using is baling wire, which is an annealed steel wire. Other than those two items, it was a very informative video.

awesome introduction to cold connections for "show me" learners. Review by Hope Nesmith

Excellent! Even better as an instant-gratification e-download. After watching this I was able to make wire rivets, use tubing as a spacer in creating dimensional pieces, and as a rivet. I hope Interweave keeps the downloadable versions of these coming.
