"I have been an avid "gourdist" for years. I recently started focusing on carving my gourds. Hours of frustration with heavy awkward drills finally convinced me to treat myself to the GourdMaster™ Pro-Carver ll. I literally shouted with glee when I turned it on! It's QUIET! It fits perfectly in my hand!! The bits are tiny and my gourds carve with beautiful precision!!! Truly a game changer. If you haven't tried the GourdMaster carver yet, I highly recommend giving it to yourself for Christmas, or just because it'll make your gourding experience so much easier." - Sue Rosenberg

"I love the Pro Carver because it's so easy to use! The hand piece fits perfectly in your hand and it's lightweight, so there is less stress on your hands. I love how easy it is to change the bits and burrs. Just click, snap (switch out burrs) and you’re done, you have to get one!" - Pamala Redhawk
