    So all I needed to top off my years of dealing with chronic pain, today I was told I have severe carpal tunnel in both hands. So my hand trimming days are over :(:(:(....

    Does anyone here have enough experience with trimming machines to recommend something? Hopefully able to find something that doesn’t take too much off and still lets it show its beauty.

    Hey there NTC!
    I have some experience with bowl type trimmers. I have only 1 hand.
    On one hand they do a good job, but on the other hand they damage the buds and rub a LOT of the trich's off that stick all over the machine.
    I've been doing some research too and find that horizontal drum types also do a great job and don't damage the buds NEAR as much. Cost is the biggest factor.
    If you ask my opinion, I would avoid bowl type trimmers if at all possible.
    Also, they Do make electric hand held trimmers/scissors.

    That bag looks interesting. Never seen something like that before. Seems like it might be a little rough though.

    Careful, looks like it could chop off fingers.
