My name is Paul
Pfeifer. My wife Sandra and I have recently started
a small home based business making wilderness
After some strange looks
from her at my idea she jumped right in with her
support. After giving her an idea of what I thought
we should include in the kits, and agreeing to only
include quality stuff, she was all on board.
days later she went shopping and ended up in the
sporting goods department of a local store. She
picked out a few things she thought we could put in
our kits. One of the things she picked up was a wire
saw. When I got home from work, she was anxious to
show me what she had found. When she handed me the
wire saw I said "Hon, this just won't work because
it's Chinese made and of pretty poor quality."
"What do you mean?" she asked. So I asked her to
accompany me to the workshop where I clamped a
length of 1x4 Ponderosa Pine to my workbench.
Taking the wire saw in hand I attempted to
demonstrate its cutting ability. After about 30
strokes and only cutting in about 1/2 to 3/4 of an
inch, the whole cut started to smoke and it was
obvious that it wasn't going to cut any more before
busting into flames from the friction. Okay, she was
convinced that it wasn't that good after all. A few
days later I received a Commando Wire Saw from bestglide.com. I immediately called my wife and handed
her both the Chinese one and the bestglide.com saw. She
was pretty impressed just comparing them in her
hands. Ah, but it was time for another demo.
Now remember, I had never
used a Commando Wire saw in my life, so this move
was strictly faith based. So back to the workshop we
go for another demo. I still had the same piece of
wood clamped to my workbench so I turned to my wife
and said "Watch this." It only took ten strokes,
that's five in each direction, and the end of the
board hit the floor. I turned to my wife and all I
got were eyes as big as saucers and a "Damn, let me
try that." So she grabs it and with another ten
strokes, one more chunk hits the floor. We are now
both definitely on the same page when it comes to
the quality we want in our kits. Thanks Best Glide ASE.
