Got my Bowl Trimmer around 8-10years  ago (maybe longer). Its very well made and so far no problems at all for what its been through. Its a hand crank model but they do make a Electric one. I opted for the 16” but they do make a larger one. In the video it shows that cleaning it looks easy but its not but that depends on how much flower you trimmed. I always hand trim my top or best flower but if you have a lot of medium-popcorn size (10 or more ) plants to trim this can save your fingers,hands, wrist from pain.

@philmebowls 

Now that's the kind of response I wanted. Thank you! I never considered cleaning. I bet that sucker is real hard. I bet the next time the resin glands build up even worse. Do you use alcohol?

@artmann Yes I did use alcohol both times. The first time was just after the first use. Then the 2nd time was a year ago . The build up gets a little crazy and turns everything Amber . I never cleaned the silicone fingers that turned the bud, but cleaning the silicone rim seal is a tad bit hard. Over all this thing holds up real well.

There's a good question. You must be high on sativa, idea man! Lol. Ok, you're right. Get high, you think outside the box.

@sevans1965 Yes it does happen as with all  Machine type flower trimmers. But like I said if you have a $hi++ load of bud to trim and your trying to keep to code #1 “tell no one” this will turn endless hours of hand trim in 30min . Lol

@philmebowls I bought a risentek trimmer for this year and am curious what you think about dry trimming vs wet trimming in regards to trichome damage. Maybe if you run the buds for a short amount of time to just get the bulk of the leaves off and then clean up the buds with scissors it would be less damaging? 
thank you

@slumped101   I hand wet trim all my choice buds then do very small touch up afterwards before they go into jars . I don’t go crazy on the bowl trimming. I know they (instructions) say like 20-30 spins but I never do that many and I don’t over pack the trim bowl so you can see what’s happening.
