    My husband and I are in the process of restoring an old house built in 1910. I bought the PaperTiger to help remove the 5+ layers of wallpaper in one of the bedrooms. It's not a perfect tool, but it works well enough. Some complaints: The little spiky wheels rotate around a center point. This is fine when working on a large area, but it makes working along edges and inner corners a bit tricky sometimes. It would be better if they were stationary. The spikes are a bit small for my needs. When I press down hard, it will score the first four layers of paper without any problems. But, I usually have to make a second pass to get completely through the bottom layer. Because the spikes are so small and close together, they easily get gunked up with paper, especially since I am also using a liquid paper stripper. So, after about every other pass, I have to stop and clean out the wheels. It can get a little annoying after awhile. Some things to keep in mind: This product is not meant to be used alone. This tool puts small holes in the wallpaper in order to make absorption of liquid wallpaper stripper faster and more effective. You still need to use a scraper to remove the paper. (See Related Products.) If you press down too hard while using it, it WILL leave marks in your wall. I will be patching and texturing the plaster after I finish removing the paper anyway, so this isn't a problem in my situation. But, if you're not planning on doing any plaster work as part of your project, you need to be careful if you will be using this tool.

    After reading all of the great reviews on this product I was looking forward to using it to remove some wallpaper. Maybe I wasn't using it right, but I found I was better off without it. It just made little holes in the wallpaper, but did not make the removal any easier. It also left little holes in my wallboard once I did get the paper off. Very disappointed.

    I had the exact same experience. Didn't help. Then, once we painted the wall, the little holes eventually started showing through and we ended up having to repaint it! We did a lighter color this time so it wasn't as evident, but yes...it's not good stuff! HOWEVER, maybe I pushed it down too hard or used it incorrectly? (Apparently that is easy to do though, since the previous poster said the same thing!)

    The job of stripping wallpaper is onerous. But this tool helps. It is easy to use, effective, and facilitates the job. Bought two-needed only one to do a dining room, hallway, 2 baths, and a master bedroom. Great tool!

    Haven't started my project yet but, from what I've learned from all the searches and conversations, this product should be the best. Well constructed and exactly as I wanted. Thanks
