I love it!
This is a great video, I loved every minute of it and it did clarify some of the techniques she uses in her work! I can't wait to apply them to my repertoire. I'm a huge fan of ms. Kazmer, I love her fun attitude, her care-free spirit and you truly can see that she loves teaching her subject. I think her explanations are clear when they matter to be clear the most. As far as the safety glasses concern, come on! You know you need to wear safety glasses if you're not a child!
I have a teacher that is so comfortable with drilling etc, she forgets to wear them comes with 15 years of knowing what you're doing! So wear your safety glasses, yes, but also buy this Download, it is downright awesome!

Not recommended
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. Review by A (Posted on 5/7/2014)
Where's your safety glasses?
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. Review by Loretta Luli (Posted on 1/20/2012)
awesome introduction to cold connections for "show me" learners.
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. Review by Hope Nesmith (Posted on 12/23/2010)
