    Good value and no real downsides.

    I bought this pretty hesitantly and did not have a lot of confidence in the product. This was after I looked at other similarly priced sandpaper on Amazon and found the reviews to be middling at best -- it basically seemed like the only other one not plagued with 1-star reviews was 3M, (or other more expensive brands) and anything priced this low was basically described as tissue paper with dust on it. Used tissue paper.Thankfully, this sandpaper was a great value and it hasn't let me down; I feel silly posting a review for sandpaper, but I do think it deserves 5 stars:Pros* Durable. It held up just as well as 3M sandpaper (which I also purchased at the same time to compare)* Sands just as well as any other brand I have used* Prime eligible (no silly add on shipping)* Washable. Unlike other some other cheap brands of optimistically named "Wet-or-Dry" sandpaper you can rinse & reuse.Cons* Fairly stiff... 5/5 S.J.

    Comfortable, big, easiest rolling I have seen

    Before this creeper, I had 2 other ones, a big box store one and a $140 SnapOn basic creeper. Both of those had issues with rolling and kneeling on them, so I decided to give this one a try, after talking to a few guys and calling Traxion directly to ask about a few details.First of all, I am 6'2", 235lb, and even with my weight fully on it, it rolls unbelievably smooth and easy. Wheels go over small stuff, grime, cardboard, small hoses and pipes and occasional pebbles on the shop floor. Wheels do have a ball bearing on top (swivel) and a sleeve bearing for the axle, and are big comparing to other standard creepers.Frame is a perimeter type, with one big oval underneath the pad with no cross beams. It is sturdy, back is made out of plywood not particle board, and 4 arms with wheels are welded to the frame. I did not notice any issues with the paint as the previous reviewer mentioned, in fact, it appears to be a very nice finish - it withstood rolling over... 5/5 G.

    FANTASTIC, LOVE IT.

    I'm going to start off by qualifying myself to lend credibility to my review. I just turned 65 years old and I've been a shade tree mechanic ever since I got my first car. I'm also a certified, licensed Airframe & Powerplant Mechanic & Inspector on Airplanes and Helicoptors. Now, of all the creepers I've owned over the years, this is hands down the best one I've ever owned. It's the first one I've had that I could sit on the very end of it and not have it tip up or roll away from me.Most of them are difficult for an old man to get off as they want to flip up or roll away. The platform on this fits my body very well. I'm 6'2" and I weigh 250 pounds. The larger than average wheels don't get in the way at all and they roll across the garage floor with ease. Now that I've got this and know how good it is, I personally think it's worth over $100. Some reviews say the wheels are too big to go under their car. If you stop for a second and think about it, your body is higher than any... 5/5 JKH - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great coverage

    0 5/5 Nathaniel Horn (51st State of Jefferson) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Automotive Paint Handbook: Paint Technology for Auto Enthusiasts and Body Shop Professionals (Paperback) There is a lot of useful information between the covers of this book and it was a great help but I'm left with this vague sense of having missed something even though I read it cover to cover. There is substance but it's a little light on detail which the 170 pages would tend to bear out. While I gained a lot of clues, I still feel that I need to read another book in order to really know what I'm doing. Some how-to books are satisfying like a shotgun blast at close range... Their authors just lay out what you need to know and deliver it in a way that imparts confidence. This book is like being hit by a scattergun from 100 yards- you pick up a lot but don't really know exactly how much flew right on by. This guy kinda meanders all over the place seemingly without a coherent outline. I felt that the author really knows his stuff but left out a lot of necessary context that a beginner like myself needs to form a clear picture.
