Chain Buddy is Fantastic!
This is one of the best "tool" I'v purchased ever. It frees up your hands to make bracelets and other jewelry items. What a great idea - wish I had invented it!

Meets expectations, mostly
One of the pegs has the hook on the wrong side. I figure I can fix it myself, though. It should be an easy enough fix and, therefore, not worth waiting around for a replacement piece. Patience is not my strong suit. :)
Apart from that, the item meets my expectations for it. Assembly was easy, there are no chips or dings, and it just has that real-wood feel. I foresee it being a huge help to me for future beading projects.

Great Tool - I should have bought it sooner
I had wanted to purchase this, but due to bad reviews I was hestitate. I should have bought it sooner - it is a very great tool. Assembled well and is very tight. Makes making charm bracelets a lot easier and the look more professional. If you make charm bracelets - you will want this tool!!

Before I got this I was constantly having to keep picking up the chain to apply beads and charms. now I can put them on faster and straighter. Yeah!

worthless construction and material
Although the idea of this product is excellent the quality was so poor I never got the chance to use it. It arrived with one support wobbling so I wood glued it in place. Two days later, good time to dry, I attempted to attached an empty bracelet chain...the other support tumbled off. I glued that and tried to use in after the glue had dried. It wobbled and wobbled and before I could complete the bracelet both support crashed down into each other at which point I, not so gently, threw it into the trash.
Again, great idea but material and construction was way too cheap. Stronger wood with support held in place by metal screws may have worked.

Well Made Item
This is a great product! I'm very happy with it. It is well made, very sturdy, and assembly couldn't be easier. This will make my bracelet making so much easier.

Disappointed in purchase
They were painted poorly, with paint drips and runs and the posts weren't quite dried when they were wrapped in tissue paper so it was stuck to them. I bought 12 for gifts and I could only match the hooks up in the same place on 2 of them. So the were hooks facing in different directions, but most of them were facing to a person's left which was not convient for attaching a bracelet to work on it.

This product is really bad.
When I got it and screwed it in the metal piece shattered. Poor poor quality.

Great price. Great idea when 2 more hands are needed for heavy bracelets & it works! I would weight it down if using heavy chain & beads to prevent tipping over..
